The modification of Transfers and Mortgaging Property Regulation will resolve the problems emerged from the failure to offer Title Deeds to purchasers who’ve paid for the property they purchased and fulfilled all the required obligations, because of developer’s money owed. Exactly, the brand new laws authorises, beneath sure situations, the Land Registry to exempt, remove, switch and annulate mortgages and/or different encumbrances. Moreover, the provisions of the Regulation N. 139(1)/2015, also called ‘hidden mortgage’ regulation, contains all gross sales held earlier than the tip of 2014.The Switch and Mortgage Property Regulation, N. 139(1)/ 2015, got here into pressure on the 4th of September 2015. The provisions of this specific regulation are supposed to defend ‘trapped patrons’ by releasing their bought Property from builders’ monetary obligations.

Word that the particular regulation applies on contracts (buy agreements) which have been submitted to the Lands Registry till the 31st of December 2014.On this level, I want to define that ‘trapped patrons’ ought to submit the required proof in an effort to get hold of a Title Deeds. Then, I’ll clarify the required steps and procedures a ‘trapped purchaser’ must comply with in order that his or her Utility to be examined and afterwards get hold of a Title Deeds.Eligible Purposes:It must be underlined that those that are entitled to submit an Utility to the Lands Registry are the ‘trapped purchaser’, the vendor (in our case the developer), the mortgage lender and the borrower based mostly on the mortgage settlement with the customer.Following the provisions of the sections 44IH and 44KST, the Director will evaluation the submitted Utility in line with the next situations:

In case a Title Deeds for the property has not been issued then the Director will ask purchaser by a written discover to pay the stability of the acquisition value in a particular interim account, inside 30 days from the date of the receipt of this discover.Pending Purposes:I want to level out that following the provisions of the regulation an utility stays pending till the acquisition value has not utterly paid, and a separate Title Deeds has not been issued in regards to the object of the contract prior the date of the Utility.Objections:Inside 45 days the next individuals have the correct to file an objection:

I want to spotlight that the ‘trapped patrons’ are obliged to pay the total quantity of the bought property or a part of it, as much as the date they file their Utility.If the required situations are fulfilled, then the Director of Lands and Surveys Division inform all events, in our case the customer, the vendor, the mortgagee and the lender, that 45 days after the notification the switch of the property to the ‘trapped purchaser’ might be held.On this level, I want to stress that the events could file a brand new objection in line with the next standards:
