Land Registration Act 2002


240.Paragraph 4 A person who is aggrieved by the registrar’s decision in respect of an application for a network access agreement or its termination may appeal to the adjudicator (for the role of the adjudicator see Part 11 and Schedule 9). This would be expected to involve handling disputes as to whether the registrar acted properly when deciding that an applicant did not meet the criteria for the level of access sought or in relation to the termination of an agreement. The adjudicator may substitute his own decision for that of the registrar and give directions to give effect to his determination. There is a further right of appeal on a point of law from the adjudicator’s decision (see section 111). Rules will govern how the appeals procedure works.
