I am advised that the Deputy has been in contact with the Waterford office of the Property Registration Authority (PRA) in relation to an application for registration of property. The processing of this application and two other related applications were delayed as a result of a registration issue relating specifically to the folio concerned. I am informed that this issue was identified on 14 February 2017 and it has now been resolved. The processing of the application (and two related applications on this folio) is currently being expedited.

I am advised that the Authority wishes to assure the Deputy that there is not, nor has there been in the recent past, any ICT fault that has impacted on the processing of applications or the provision of services generally in any of the offices of the Property Registration Authority and I have asked the Chief Executive to write to the Deputy in this regard.
