Land Registration Act 2002

Section 87: Pending land Actions, writs, orders and deeds of arrangement

143.The matters to which section 87 relates are all the things which, in the case of unregistered land, may be registered under sections 5 to 7 of the Land Charges Act 1972, except for bankruptcy petitions and orders (which are dealt with under section 86). Section 59 of the 1925 Act provides for such matters to be protected by a caution against dealings, a form of entry which is abolished by the Act. Section 49(1)(f) to (k) of the 1925 Act enables certain matters also to be protected by means of a notice. The effect of these matters being treated by the section as interests affecting a registered estate or charge is that, if their priority is not protected, a disponee would take free from them under sections 29 and 30. The fact that none of the matters is capable of falling within paragraph 2 of Schedule 1 or Schedule 3 means that their priority has to be protected by means of an entry in the register, under the Act either a notice or a restriction. The fact that a deed of arrangement and an order appointing a receiver or sequestrator cannot be the subject of a notice means that the only way of protecting such a deed or order is by means of a restriction.
