Land registration – guidance

Implied covenants (PG48)

Advice on various covenants implied by statute when there is a disposal of land (practice guide 48).


This guide is aimed at conveyancers and you should interpret references to ‘you’ accordingly. Land Registry staff will also refer to it.

This edition of the guide replaces the November 2008 edition. An amendment to ‘Scope of this guide’ has been made as a result of the Land Registration (Amendment) Rules 2011, which change the definition of ‘conveyancer’ to make it consistent with the Legal Services Act 2007.
