Land registration and title systems

Title to land in England & Wales is governed largely by the Land Registration Act 2002, although there are pockets of unregistered title. This research stream focuses on both the policy and the detail of the Land Registration Act 2002 and incorporates comparative analysis of systems in other jurisdictions such as the Torrens systems in Australia and New Zealand. Members of the Centre are currently engaged in assessing potential reforms of the 2002 Act and are advising land registries in other jurisdictions about the development of title systems. In 2014, the Centre hosted a symposium marking the ten-year anniversary of the 2002 Act, attended by academics from diverse jurisdictions, practitioners, representative of H.M. Land Registry and law reform bodies. The Centre welcomes proposals for collaborative research and can provide expert advice.
