Land Registration Act 2002

Lease of estate in land

219.Paragraph 3 provides that when a lease is granted by the owner of a registered estate in land, the person to whom the lease was granted (or any person who has acquired the estate from him) must be shown in the register as proprietor. In addition, a notice is inserted in the register of the landlord’s title to show that the land is now subject to the newly created lease. Leases of more than seven years, (and certain other leases as specified in section 27), will be registered in their own right rather than just recorded in the register relating to the landlord’s title.
