This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ... a possessory title, showing the fee payable for an absolute title in the particular case. This is handed to the person presenting the application, to enable him to bring the fact to the notice of his client. (2.) Paragraph B reduces the fees payable for registering deaths, gifts and other transactions where value is not exchanged to one-sixth of the usual fee (instead of one-fourth as at present), with a maximum of 21. (instead of 51.). (3.) In paragraphs G, H, I and J of the Order, a large number of minor incidental fees are either reduced or remitted. No fees are increased. (4.) Rule 6 replaces Rule 780 of the existing rules. The time within which an instrument can be registered at the reduced fee is altered from fourteen days from the date of execution of the conveyance to seven days from the first registration of the land. This alteration will considerably increase the number of cases to which the reduced fee will apply. (5.) The existing Rule 17 is omitted. It is replaced by new Rule 23. The new rule provides specifically for the particular case of hardship for which the former rule (which was unnecessarily wide in its application) provided an indirect remedy. It may be pointed out with regard to the fees generally, that the Act of 1897 (sect. 20) requires that the office shall pay its own expenses (including the annual contribution to the insurance fund) and no more. This provision has been observed. The same Act, in a schedule, fixed the scale of fees to be charged, subject to alteration by rule. The scale so fixed has never been raised, all the alterations introduced by rulcs having been by way of reduction. IV.-S'.--Good morning, Mr. Brown--good morning. Pray be seated. Jllr. B.--Thank you; I hope I am punctual. IV. S.--Yes, more
