Property Registration Authority must extend ‘rights of way’ deadline – Pa Daly TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Law Reform, Pa Daly TD, has today called for an extension to the deadline to register ‘rights of way’ with the Property Registration Authority.

Teachta Daly said:

“There is an urgent need for the deadline to be postponed. This is due to the legal and practical complexities involved in registering rights of way and the Covid-19 pandemic, which have given rise to great difficulties for many.

“After the The Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act, 2009, as amended by the Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2011, assent by neighbouring landowners is required, and in some cases, complex legal procedures must be undertaken to establish proper rights of way. 

“This is time consuming and whilst the deadline has already been extended, it should be further delayed. Otherwise, many home owners risk not having proper access to their own homes, which has the potential to flood the courts with cases.

“Farmers are particularly at risk if the deadline is not postponed, as rights of way can affect access, drainage and many other issues related to farming. Livelihoods and homes are at risk, and the Minister for Housing must take action.”
