Question:

365 Mr. Perry asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if he will provide guidelines for the purchase of freehold property; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10650/03]

I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that the Land Registry has produced an explanatory leaflet on the purchase of a ground rent under Part 3 of the Landlord and Tenant (Ground Rents) (No. 2) Act 1978.

I am also informed that the explanatory leaflet and the relevant application forms in relation to ground rent applications are available on request. I am further informed that an in-depth explanation of the procedures and all the application forms are also available on the Land Registry website at www.landregistry.ie.
