The Property Registration Authority can amend the ownership, registered on a folio, upon receipt of an application for registration. In the event of the death of the registered owner an application would typically be received from a solicitor acting on behalf of the estate of the deceased person. Arrangements have been put in place by all bodies under the aegis of my Department to facilitate the provision of information directly to members of the Oireachtas. The contact email address for the Property Registration Authority is reps@prai.ie.
