As most readers will be aware, the 1925 property legislation was intended to make radical changes in the process of conveyancing. Its main purpose was to simplify the whole procedure and, to this end, the Land Registration Act 1925 (LRA 1925) extended an existing (but little used) system of registration of title to land. The system has been further extended by subsequent Land Registration Acts, and registration of title at local Land Registries was finally extended to the whole country in 1990. The Land Registration Act 2002 (LRA 2002), part of which brought into force extensive and significant changes on 13 October 2003, furthers the ultimate aim of registered title, which is that the register will be a mirror of the title to the land and will contain everything which a purchaser needs to know.
