Written answers (Question to Housing)

The Property Registration Authority (PRA) was established under the Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006 replacing the Registrar of Deeds and Titles as the State registering authority in relation to property registration in Ireland.

The PRA deals with applications under Part III of the Landlord and Tenant (Ground Rents) (No. 2) Act 1978, whereby owners of leasehold properties can purchase their ground rent (freehold interest).

The PRA is independent in the performance of its functions.
