  • 2 Unregistered Conveyancing

  • Where the title to the land is unregistered, when does the buyer become the legal owner of the land?

    At the date of the conveyance 
  • How can sellers prove that they have a right to possession of the land where the title to the property is unregistered?

    Producing documents that show proof that the seller and their predecessors have been entitled to possession of the property for a number of years. This is known as a bundle of conveyances proving an unbroken chain of title.

  • What do buyers have to do each time the land is sold?

    Each time land is sold, buyers have to read the old conveyances to establish ownership = time-consuming and repetitive. Secondly, it is expensive - buyers pay solicitors
