Welcome

The Future is Now!

eConveyancing and Title Registration

International Conference

Friday 7th and Saturday 8th April 2017

NUI Galway welcomes you to its International conference entitled “The Future is Now! eConveyancing and Title Registration” to be held at the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill, Galway on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th April 2017.

Electronic conveyancing or eConveyancing is heralded as the future for conveyancing and title registration of land and property in many countries throughout the world. eConveyancing envisages paperless transactions through all stages of the conveyancing process from pre-sale to post-completion of the buying and selling transaction. It is designed to simplify, reduce costs and speed up the conveyancing process.

The promised benefits of eConveyancing will bring with it challenges for the current paper bound conveyancing process particularly in Common Law countries. How do we reconcile the equitable property rights that currently exist ‘off title’ with the new, all-encompassing electronic title register? How do we deal with risk, fraud, indefeasibility of title and other important issues for conveyancing in this new electronic environment? Can eConveyancing benefit from Blockchain technology? What are the current developments in eRegistration for title registration systems? What are the implications of EU Law and of Human Rights? What are the implications for Capacity Law? These questions will inform important topics for our discussion. 

The objective of this conference is to bring together the leading authorities on eConveyancing and title registration drawn from academia, practice and the Property Registration Authority. As such it represents an unique opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with key players leading the way in developments both nationally and internationally in this area. The conference aims to inform and challenge our current thinking in this dynamic arena of property law.

This conference comes at a critical time in the development of eConveyancing and title registration in Ireland, England and Wales and other international jurisdictions.
