Cambridge Centre for Property Law

 

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 2016-2018, Martin Dixon, Emma Lees and Amy Goymour acted as advisers to the Law Commission in respect of their project, Updating the Land Registration Act 2002. In 2019, members of the Centre contributed to a volume of essays on aspects of world wide title systems, to be published as New Horizons for Torrens (2020), edited by Grindlinton and Thomas (Centre Fellow). The Centre welcomes proposals for collaborative research and can provide expert advice.
