In this address, Minister Lenihan describes the Irish Law Reform Commission's Report on Reform and Modernisation of Land Law and Conveyancing Law, as being impressive in terms both of its comprehensive scope and its intellectual rigour. It contains proposals for a draft bill which will radically reform and transform Ireland's land and conveyancing laws. These proposals include:
- simplifying land and conveyancing law and improving its presentation in order to make it more easily understood and accessible for both practitioners and the public;
- updating the law in order to meet the changing social, demographic and economic needs of Irish society, including new forms of property ownership; and
- making the conveyancing of property easier and faster with a view to reducing regulatory burdens and costly delays for individuals and enterprises alike.
