Manorial rights are certain rights which were retained by lords of the manor and their tenants in England and Wales when copyhold land became freehold in the early 20th century.
They include rights to:
- mines and some minerals
- sporting rights
- rights to hold fairs and markets
The Committee has made recommendations on the operation of the current system for registering these rights under the Land Registration Act 2002 and related statistical information.
It has also made proposals in relation to the need for research and broader reform of the law on manorial rights.
