‘Concern and frustration’ at new Land Registry policy

The Law Society’s Conveyancing Committee has said that it shares “the concern and frustration” expressed by practitioners about a new Land Registry practice of rejecting applications without giving specific reasons.

The committee says that the change was introduced without prior consultation with, or notice to, the Law Society.

Members of the committee met representatives from Tailte Éireann on 8 December to discuss this matter.

Engagement to continue

“However, it has been made clear that the new practice will not be suspended pending further consultation, notwithstanding a request from the committee to this effect,” the committee stated.

“The Law Society will continue to engage with Tailte Éireann in relation to this change, and will issue further guidance as soon as possible,” it added.

In the interim, the committee has said that, if practitioners are satisfied that a rejected application is in order, it should be relodged promptly.
