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 first registration which was lodged on 10 August 2004 — dealing No. D2004SM006294D refers. I understand that due to the complicated nature of cases of this type, which require examination of an applicant's entitlement to the property concerned, it is not possible to estimate a date of completion at this time. I am further informed that queries issued to the lodging solicitor on 11 October 2004 and that the application cannot proceed until these queries have been satisfactorily resolved. However, I can assure the Deputy that on receipt of a satisfactory reply, the matter will receive further attention in the Land Registry.
