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

I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that a section 49 application refers to the acquisition of title by virtue of long possession under the Registration of Titles Act 1964. Itwas lodged on 27 January, dealing No. D2004SM000824D.

These are complicated applications that require detailed examination for registration as owners and can take some time to process. Queries issued to the lodging solicitors on 9 February. The application cannot proceed until they have been satisfactorily resolved. On receipt of a satisfactory reply, the matter will receive further attention in the Land Registry.
