Land Registration Act 2002

Terms of access

238.Paragraph 2 The network access agreement referred to in paragraph 1 will define the nature of the transactions that a particular user may undertake through the network and such other terms as the registrar sees fit, including charging for access. Rules may regulate the terms on which access is authorised under paragraph 2. These rules are subject to greater Parliamentary scrutiny than land registration rules generally and the Lord Chancellor must also consult before making the rules. Rules may require that a user use the system for the transactions for which he is authorised to use it. The rules may also enable network transactions to be monitored (e.g. for chain management) or for such other purpose as has been specified in rules. The rules may specify terms for the regulation of the use of the network.
