Vol. 554 No. 5

Written Answers. - Registration of Title.

Michael Ring


1381 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if his Department will ascertain from the Land Registry Office when a section 49 application will be completed for persons (details supplied) in County Mayo. [16406/02]

I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that this is an application under section 49, that is, acquisition of title by virtue of long possession, of the Registration of Titles Act, 1964, which was lodged on 4 October 2001 -dealing No. D2001SM0007530R refers.

I understand that due to their complicated nature, applications under section 49, which require detailed examination of claims for registration as owners, can take some time to process.

I am further informed that queries which issued to the lodging solicitor have now been replied to. I am also informed that the Land Registry have received correspondence from solicitors acting on behalf of an interested party. I can assure the Deputy that this matter is receiving attention and the application will be completed as soon as possible.
