Land Registration Act 2002


218.Paragraph 2 provides that on a transfer of the whole of the registered estate, the transferee (or any person who has acquired the estate from him) must be entered in the register as proprietor. There are no other registration requirements as details of the new owner simply replace those of the old. Where the transfer is of part only, a new section of the register is created for the part transferred which shows the transferee or his successor as proprietor. In addition, an entry must be recorded in the register relating to the original proprietor’s estate to show that part of the land has been removed. Rules will cover the way in which this is recorded.
