Registration of Title Act, 1964

Effect of failure to register where registration compulsory.

25.—In any case in which registration becomes compulsory, a person (other than the Land Commission) shall not, under any conveyance on sale of freehold land or grant or assignment on sale of a leasehold interest executed thereafter, acquire the estate or interest purported to be conveyed, granted or assigned unless, within six months after such conveyance, grant or assignment (or at such later time as the Registrar or, in case of his refusal, the court may sanction in any particular case), he is registered as owner of such freehold land or leasehold interest but, on being so registered, his title shall relate back to the date of the execution of the conveyance or the date of the grant or assignment, and any dealings with the land before the registration shall have effect accordingly.
