In registered land, a Form A restriction1 may be entered on the proprietorship register indicating the steps required to overreach the beneficial interests. A further restriction may also be entered reflecting any other limitations on the trustees' powers to dispose of the land2. Provided the terms of any restriction are complied with the buyer will get good title. Where trustees hold the land on trust for themselves as joint tenants in equity, no restriction is placed on the register and the buyer may safely deal with the survivor on proof of death of the other trustee3.
