Title Deeds are records that document the ownership of a property. In Ireland there are two separate systems, which record property transactions:
1) The registration of title system – Land Registry – that provides a State guaranteed title to a property.
2) The registration of deeds system – Registry of Deeds – this records the existence of deeds and all conveyances affecting a property.
Both of these systems are mutually exclusive. Any solicitor can tell you which of the systems is relevant to you and your land or property. The PRA (Property Registration Authority) is an independent statutory body set up under the Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006 – it is the PRA who control and manage both systems.
House Deeds Storage
House Deeds should always be kept in a safe and secure environment, preferably out of your home. In times gone past, solicitors would generally hold their clients deeds, but due to rising insurance costs and the expense of replacing lost, stolen or damaged title deeds, the majority of solicitors no longer offer this service to clients. This is when having your own safe deposit box with Merrion Vaults becomes invaluable, as you can keep all important documents (not just deeds) safe and secure in your safe deposit box.
