This book is an examination of the law of land registration in England and Wales in light of the Land Registration Act 2002, and it looks in particular at the way land registration is influenced by, and in turn influences, the evolution of land law as a whole. It is argued, for instance, that land registration is changing the nature of ownership. The book examines the legal problems that have arisen in connection with land registration and considers the effect of the 2002 statute. It draws extensively upon the law in other jurisdictions and considers possibilities for future development. This is a book which will be essential reading for students, their teachers, and practitioners who will have to grapple with the intricacies of the new Act when it comes into force.
