On the 1st of December 2012, the Minister for Justice and Equality, Mr. Alan Shatter, signed the Land Registration Rules 2012 into law under Statutory Instrument S.I. No. 483 of 2012. These Rules will come into effect from the 1st February 2013.
The Rules are both (1) a consolidation of Land Registration Rules 1972 to 2011, which were considered necessary as a result of the many changes that had been made to the Rules in recent years arising from significant changes in legislation and (2) a revision of any Rules considered necessary by the Registration of Deeds and Titles Rules Committee following on from a consultation period.
As a result of feedback received during the consultation process, Land Registration Forms have been revised and updated as stand alone documents and those no longer deemed necessary have been rescinded and replaced.
