Notices and Objections
In certain Land Registry proceedings the Registrar may order the publication of notices relating to pending or completed applications. Examples of such cases may be where an application is made for registration of land acquired by adverse possession, an application where rights are claimed through long usage or in cases where registration is applied for but title deeds in respect of the land cannot be produced. Please note the examples mentioned are not intended in any way to be an exhaustive list, rather they are simply a few examples provided to aid understanding.
The majority of applications received by the Land Registry do not require any notice to be given or published. However, in certain cases such as in an application for registration of land acquired through adverse possession the Registrar will require the applicant to publish notice in a local newspaper before the application is determined. In other matters, the Registrar may use discretion to determine an application and only publish notice after title has been granted.
The reason notices are published is to give people with an interest in the land the opportunity to ensure any rights or claims they have over the land are taken into account. An interest in the land must be a legal interest (for example, a right to pass and repass over land for access to other land) and not just simply that you have always wanted to buy the land and therefore consider that you have ‘an interest’.
If you are in any doubts about whether or not you have a legal interest in land, and indeed how you should go about protecting any you may have (whether the land is registered in the Land Registry or is still unregistered land), you should seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
