The Law Commission is due to start work on a land registration project later this year and expects to publish its report, making recommendations for reform, accompanied by a draft Bill late in 2017.

The Land Registration Act 2002 was implemented following a joint project between the Law Commission and Land Registry.

The commission’s new project comprises a wide-ranging review of the 2002 Act, with a view to amendment where elements of the Act could be improved in light of experience with its operation.
