Correcting a ‘Mistake’ in the Land Register: NRAM Ltd v Evans [2017] EWCA Civ 1013


The Court of Appeal has handed down its judgment in NRAM Ltd v Evans [2017] EWCA Civ 1013. As Kitchin LJ said in his judgment, at [2], the appeal raised “interesting issues concerning the legislative scheme set out in Schedule 4 to the Land Registration Act 2002 … and the power it confers on the court to make alterations to the register for the purpose of correcting a mistake or bringing the register up to date.”

Nicholas Trompeter appeared on behalf of the Chief Land Registrar, who was given permission to intervene in the appeal.
