No system of land registration is perfect and there will always be errors that occur in the conveyancing which leads to registration and in the registration itself. Rectification of these errors is an important, if not a vital part of any system of land registration.
How does the system deal fairly with the errors? Who gets to keep the ground and who gets compensation? How is the balance maintained between reliance on the register and the need to rectify in favour of the person who is in property law entitled to the ground?
This online course will cover this important area in the following four sections, each of which can be accessed separately:
the background to rectification and the Midas touch
how rectification works under the 2012 Act
why do the 1979 Act provisions still prevail?
how do I get compensation under the 2012 Act?
After attending this course, attendees will be confident in ensuring their clients get rectification and the relevant compensation.
