465. Rectification of the register.

Rectification under the Land Registration Act 2002 is limited to an alteration of the register to correct a mistake which prejudicially affects the title of a registered proprietor1.

Neither the court nor the registrar2 can rectify a title against a proprietor without his consent in relation to land in his possession unless:

  1.  

    (1)     the proprietor has by fraud or lack of proper care caused or substantially contributed to the mistake; or

  2.  

    (2)     it would for any other reason be unjust for the alteration not to be made
