Compulsory acquisition of title

Hello,

We have completed a compulsory acquisition of title form via the Land Regsitry- our title deeds are not yet ready and I find it so difficult to know how close we are. The developer just fobs me off with "not ready" and the land registry is just impossible to get hold of to get an update.

Could you explain what the compulsory acquisition of title form actually does when our title deeds are finally ready?

Thank you

Hi coops,

It's impossible to say how long it will take to issue your Title Deed after completing a compulsory acquisition of title form.

It all depends on how much work needs to be done. It could be the property hasn't been inspected by the Planning Authority and issued with its Completion Certificate. It could be that the plot has yet to be subdivided.

YOu can read more about the actual process on pages 12 & 13 of the Department of Lands & Survey's Citizens' Charter.

Regards,

Thank you Nigel. When they are ready what does this form do for us exactly? Sorry, I just don’t understand what advantages it will give us. Thanks.

Nigel- did you have any clarification on my question- what does the compulsory acquisition form actually do when it is in place for when our title deeds are issued? Thank you
