Hidden assets: protecting the Church Commissioners’ valuable minerals
Date Posted: 17/03/2010
Author: Simon Pring
Manorial minerals are mineral interests attached to the lordship of a manor. Since 1925, these rights have not needed to be registered at the Land Registry in order to bind the owner of the surface title (they have been ‘overriding interests’). However, from 12 October 2013, these rights will cease to override and must therefore be registered in order to be secure. If they are not registered, they risk being lost when title to the surface changes.
