Law Society of Northern Ireland Writes To Finance Minister
The Law Society of Northern Ireland has written to the Finance Minister,
Conor Murphy, to seek an urgent resolution to the closure of the Land Registry.
The Society, which has been in discussions with Land Registry over the
last few week says it is imperative that a safe and workable solution is
agreed to reduce the negative impact of the closure on the economy, commercial
lending and conveyancing transactions in Northern Ireland.
Commenting, the President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Rowan
“The Society is aware of a number of inaccurate statements which have been
circulating and which suggest that Land Registry will open shortly. The
Society has written to the Minister seeking his urgent attention and clarity
on this matter”.
