Written Answers. - Registration of Title.

  713. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when a dealing for a person (details supplied) in County Galway will be dealt with. [11522/04]

  Mr. McDowell: I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that these applications refer to an application for a land commission schedule, which was lodged on 23 January 1995 and an application for transfer, which was lodged on 25 November 1998. Schedule number 92562 and dealing number D1998GY004635W refer.

Land Commission schedule applications are deemed to be registered as of the date of vesting which is prior to the date of lodgement of the documents in the Land Registry. Accordingly, [566] registration in the Land Registry of Land Commission cases is afforded a lower priority than the registration of other dealings. I am further informed that the Land Commission schedule application is receiving attention in the Land Registry and, subject to no queries arising, will be completed within the next few weeks.

I am also informed that queries issued to the lodging solicitor on 21 April 2004 regarding dealing number D1998GY004635W and that the application cannot proceed until these queries have been satisfactorily resolved. However, on receipt of a satisfactory reply, the matter will receive further attention in the Land Registry.
