Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2009 

New prescribed Forms for Charges and Judgment Mortgages

 

The Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2009, which provides for a comprehensive reform and modernisation of land law and conveyancing  law, comes into effect on 1st December 2009.

The Act makes very significant changes in relation to many aspects of land law including mortgages and judgment mortgages.  As a result of  amendments to  the Registration of Title Act 1964, and to the changes in law provided for in the 2009 Act,  PRA Rules, Forms and Practice Directions require substantial revision.

New forms and rules have been approved by the PRA Rules Committee and await signing by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform.  They will be enacted by way of Statutory Instrument in due course. Of major and urgent significance are the new forms of application for registration of judgment mortgages and the prescribed one page form of charge for present and future advances.  

N.B. Judgment affidavits lodged in the Land Registry or Registry of Deeds on or after 1st December 2009 must be in the new prescribed form, i.e. Form 16 for Registry of Deeds or Form 60 for Land Registry.
