The effect of (non-)registration on property rights


Examining the effect of (non-)registration on legal rights and the role of registers more generally. I will investigate the personal and proprietary rights of parties, as well as the effect of these rights on both innocent and fraudulent third parties, throughout the registration process. I will also consider the compatibility of registration systems and the involvement of the general law, as well as the resolution of conflicts between the general law and the register.
