Concerns title to real property such as Manorial Waste and Incidents, and what the conveyance of manors shall include.

·                Land Registration Act 1925

·                Limitation Act 1939 (2 & 3 Geo.6 c.21)

·                Statute Law Repeals Act 1986
Removes incorporeal hereditaments from the definition of land with regards to Limitation Act time limits concerning their recovery of title by the Crown.

·                Civil Evidence Act 1995

·                Land Registration Act 2002
Manorial titles are outside the definition of 'land', and land must be physically posessed to be registrable. Manorial Titles no longer voluntarily registrable. Registration of title not conclusive proof of ownership of title.

Case Law

·                Burton & Bamford v Walker & Others, Land Registry REF/2007/1124 (10 December 2010)
Confirmed that adverse posession, prescription, loss of modern grant, or proprietary estoppeldo NOT enable ownership of a Lordship of the Manor title. Confirmed ownership requires the presence of all deeds, correctly made up since 1189. The absence of correct and complete sets of deeds requires Court approval to confirm ownership.

·                Walker & Ors v Burton & Anor [2012] EWHC 978 (Ch) (17 April 2012)
Confirmed the judgement as above
