Key provisions of the Land Registration Act 2002 provide the legal framework for electronic conveyancing. This book will explain the legislative framework and the current proposals – including the key issues of security and authorisation – and will highlight the points that need to be addressed by practitioners in order to qualify for access to the new system.
Electronic conveyancing will not be with us until 2006 and this book will take a thematic approach, highlighting the main practical issues arising from the new law and providing precedents and checklists to help busy conveyancers to manage the risks.
This book will seek to highlight – and to give practical advice on – the day to day requirements of the new regime, and to promote sensible and cost-effective management of the risks.
