Land Registration Act 2002

Overriding nature of network access obligations

242.Paragraph 6 The network transaction rules made under paragraph 5 are likely to require an authorised conveyancer to provide specified information about a dealing, and, in particular, information about interests whose priority is protected without the need for registration. The rules are likely to require the disclosure of other information that a registered proprietor might not wish to have disclosed, such as the fact that a right to determine a registered estate in land has become exercisable. In addition, where the transaction is part of a chain, the conveyancer might have to disclose information about the transaction itself that the client regards as confidential. In these circumstances, the situation may arise where a conveyancer could be required to act contrary to the client’s wishes. Where conflicting obligations do arise, paragraph 6 provides that the obligation under the network access agreement prevails and discharges the other obligation to the extent that they conflict.
