Anyone who has tried to sell or buy a property in recent years, where title to the property has to be registered in the Land Registry section of the Property Registration of Ireland, will be aware of the difficulties that are caused by an inaccurate map attaching to the title deeds – or produced by the Property Registration Authority itself.
The Conveyancing Committee of Law Society of Ireland, set up a task force to examine mapping and boundary issues, which included representatives of the Law Society, Bar Council, Engineers Ireland, Irish Institute of Surveyors, Irish Planning Institute and Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland.
The report of this task force noted that the issue of mapping precision is at the core of current title mapping problems. The report is now available from Dr. Gabriel Brennan, who represented the Conveyancing Committee on the task force, by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
