Correction of the Register and Mistake by Omission


Discusses what constitutes a "mistake" justifying correction of the land register under the Land Registration Act 2002, and whether omissions are a valid ground for rectification. Reviews the current statutory position and proposes a system for categorising mistakes by omission, including scenarios involving third-party interventions, a right-holder's failure to apply for registration, and a public body's failure to communicate with the Registry.
