Deducing and investigating title in registered and unregistered land

 
"So, you think you know about: Deducing and investigating title in registered and unregistered land"

If you work in domestic conveyancing, this CPD will remind you of the key requirements for deducing and investigating title in registered land, including checking for discrepancies and potential problems in the register entries. We will also look at deducing and investigating title in unregistered land.

The course starts with a short (5 minutes) topic recording introducing deducing and investigating title in registered and unregistered land. We then go on to look in more detail at the requirements for deducing title in registered land and typical queries and discrepancies which may arise on investigation. We also examine title issues in relation to unregistered land, including identifying a good root and when pre-root documents must be disclosed.

Finally, we will look at a case study on the extend of unregistered land in your area and how to find out the owner of a piece of unregistered land.
