Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform
Registration of Title
Question 521: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the progress to date on the application for registration of folio under Section 49 of the Register of Titles Act, 1964 by a person (details supplied) in County Mayo. [18897/07]
I can inform the Deputy that a service for TDs and Senators concerning the current status of applications of this type was introduced in May 2006. The service was introduced, inter alia, to provide a speedier and more efficient and cost effective alternative to submitting Parliamentary Questions.
Under the provisions of the Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006, the Property Registration Authority was established as and from 4 November, 2006. The Property Registration Authority replaces the Registrar of Deeds and Titles as the registering authority in relation to property registration in Ireland and, subject to the above Act, is independent in the performance of its functions.
In order to be of assistance the Deputy's query has been forwarded to the Authority for direct reply via the above mentioned service.
