Before a restriction in Form A in the proprietorship register can be cancelled, HM Land Registry must be satisfied that
the restriction is no longer required. This will often be because the land is no longer subject to a trust. A trust of land
exists when the formal ownership of the land (the ‘legal estate’) is separated from the underlying ownership (the
‘beneficial interest’).
The restriction will no longer be required if:
the interest protected by the restriction has ended or passed to the registered proprietor(s) or the survivor(s)
of them, and
nobody else has a beneficial interest in the land, and
if there are two or more registered proprietors, they now hold the land on trust for themselves (and nobody
else) as beneficial joint tenants. Joint owners must hold the legal estate as joint tenants, but their beneficial
interests may be held either as joint tenants or as tenants in common. Joint tenants do not have specific
shares in the land. On the death of one joint tenant, their interest in the land passes automatically to the
others. Tenants in common have specific shares, which can be transferred separately, and are inherited as
part of their estate on their death. (See www.gov.uk/joint-property-ownership)

unlimited fine, or both.
