Registration of land brings:
- Certainty as to boundaries;
- Certainty as to the rights (and obligations) attached to land;
- Certainty of ownership;
- Protection of properly acquired informal rights; and
- Protection of sporting and mineral rights.
Taking control of the registration process through voluntary registration ensures that owners have input and oversight over the form of application as presented to the Land Register.
