      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A 'trust' is not a situation where a property is owned by one person. In a trust, the legal ownership of the property is held by a trustee who manages it on behalf of the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries have equitable ownership rights but do not have direct legal ownership. Therefore, the statement is false.

    The Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 establishes that whenever there is co-ownership of land, a trust of land is automatically created.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The word 'tenancy' does not mean paying a landlord and not ownership. In fact, tenancy refers to the legal agreement between a landlord and a tenant, where the tenant pays rent to the landlord in exchange for the right to occupy and use the property. Ownership is not a requirement for tenancy, as tenants do not own the property they are renting. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

In this system, the ownership of a property is transferred through the physical transfer of title deeds from the seller to the buyer. This method does not involve registration with a government authority and relies solely on the validity and authenticity of the title deeds. It is considered traditional because it has been practiced for a long time before the introduction of registered conveyancing systems.

This streamlines property transactions and provides certainty to buyers and lenders.

It is important for each party to have their own independent legal representation to ensure fairness and protect their individual interests in a contract race.
