Land Registration Act 2002

Creation of other legal interest

222.Paragraph 7 specifies the registration requirements for those dispositions falling within section 27 (2) (d) or (e) which are not dealt with by paragraph 4, 5 or 6. In any of these cases, a notice must be entered in the register relating to the registered estate out of which it was granted which shows that the registered estate is now subject to that interest. If the interest also benefits another registered estate, then it should be recorded in the register relating to that other estate, showing the proprietor as proprietor of that interest. For example if a right of way is granted by a deed of grant over land to a neighbouring landowner, the easement will be noted in the register as being something that burdens that land. Additionally, the register relating to the adjoining title will be amended to show that the owner of that land has the benefit of the right of way contained in the deed of grant. Power is given to the Lord Chancellor to amend the registration requirements applying to a right of entry contained in a lease. At present the benefit of a right of way contained in a lease is not recorded in the landlord’s title. The purpose of this power is to enable the current practice to continue for now, whilst leaving open the possibility that the practice might be changed in future.
