Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that this is an application for the issue of a duplicate land certificate which was lodged on 25 November 2003. Application No. S2003TJ003065R refers.

The Deputy will be aware that applications for duplicate land certificates take time to process due to the fact that notices have to issue to a number of institutions, an advertisement needs to be placed in theLaw Gazette and certain time limits have to elapse before the application can receive further consideration.

I am further informed that notices in relation to this application were sent to relevant institutions who may be able to assist the Land Registry with this application on 15 January 2003. I am also informed that a letter was issued to the lodging solicitor on the 16 January 2003 in relation to the placing of an advertisement in theLaw Gazette.

I can assure the Deputy that once the notice period expires and the stipulated time limits elapse, the application will receive further consideration.
