Land Registration Act 2002


217.Paragraph 1 explains that this Part of the Schedule sets out the registration requirements for those dispositions of registered estates required to be completed by registration under section 27(2). Until these requirements are met, legal title does not pass. These disposition requirements also apply to dispositions by operation of law apart from those that occur on the death or bankruptcy of an individual, the dissolution of a company or the creation of a legal charge which is a local land charge (section 27(5)). The requirements as set out are in accordance with the Land Registry’s current procedures for recording dispositions.
