Regrards my previous question and your answer I have now

Customer Question

Regrards my previous question and your answer I have now spoken to my friend and she has informed me that

1. No permission was requested

2. No verbal agreement ( on land since 1966)

3. Application by my friend for adverse possession of land under Section 53 L and Registry. NI 1970


A Doubt raised by Land Registry under Section 6 of the Land Registry Act NI 1970 to the High Court Northern Ireland regarding the application of my friend for adverse possession of land under Section 53 Land Registry Act 1970 NI.



My question:- What are the possible questions that may arise out of

Section 6 :-

(1) Any person aggrieved by any order of the registrar, or by any decision of the registrar other than a decision on a matter expressly stated to be in his discretion, may appeal to the High Court, and that Court may annul or confirm, with or without modification, the order or decision.

(2) Whenever the Registrar entertains a doubt as to any question of law or of fact arising in the course of registration under this act, he may make an order to refer this to the High Court.

(3) Save as is otherwise provided by section 61, the High Court, in any proceedings under this section, shall if so requested by the registrar, and may in any case , if necessary appoint, person of unsound mind, person absent from Northern Ireland , unborn person or person as to whom it is not known if he is dead or alive.

(4) The High Court, if it is satisfied that the interest of any person represented as is mentioned in subsection (3), are sufficiently protected by the representation, make an order declaring that he shall conclusively bound by the decision of the court and thereupon, he shall subject to section(7), be bound accordingly as if he were a party.
