Land Registration Act 2002

Staff and Conduct of business

289.Paragraphs 3,4 and 5 Like the registrar, the adjudicator is supported by staff who may be authorised to carry out any of his or her functions. The only exception to this is that for tasks that are not administrative, such as presiding over hearings, the member of staff must meet the same requirements of ten years’ legal qualification under the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 as the adjudicator. Like the registrar, the adjudicator may choose staff and appoint them on such terms and conditions as he or she, with the approval of the Minister for the Civil Service, sees fit. The Lord Chancellor can make regulations to cover the situation when a vacancy arises in the office of adjudicator.
