Section 3.4 has been added to make it clearer that the burden of a prescriptive easement can be protected by a caution against first registration.
Section 1.2 has been amended to make it clear when a prescriptive easement might still arise where the burdened land is occupied by a tenant.
Section 4 has been updated to reflect our current practice relating to the use of copy documents for registration. Section 4.1 has been updated following the amendment of rule 90 of the Land Registration Rules 2003 by the Land Registration (Amendment) Rules 2018 coming into force on 6 April 2018.
Section 3.2 has been amended as a result of a review of our practice.
