There are no plans to review the law in this area at present. The Law of Property Act 1925, Land Registration Acts of 1925 and 2002 and the Land Registration Rules set out a clear legal framework and checks and balances for protecting the various interests in registered estates and charges, including those of third party interests.

HM Land Registry publish practice notes which offer guidance on the role and use of Form A and other restrictions, including one on ‘Notices, restrictions and protection of third-party interests’:
