Land Registration Act 2002


Paragraph 1 sets out a narrower definition of “rectification” than under the current law.  Rectification is limited to the situation where a mistake is to be corrected, and where the correction also prejudicially affects the title of the registered proprietor.  Rectification is just one particular form of alteration.  When rectification under this definition occurs, the proprietor may be entitled to indemnity as he or she will have been prejudicially affected by the amendment made.
