    A is a developer who needs to acquire land adjacent to his present property,
    Blackacre. B buys neighbouring land, Greenacre, title to which is yet unregistered,
    from X. Then B agrees in writing with A that B will allow A to use Greenacre as
    access to A’s land.

    A goes to register his interest but discovers that B has not registered his title to
    Greenacre. He then enters a caution against First Registration, but then fails to enter
    his interest on the Land Charges Register.

    B then falls into financial trouble and grants a charge on his property in favour of Y
    to secure a loan of £3 million. Y knows about A’s interest. B defaults on the loan, so
    Y then exercises his power of sale, and conveys title to Greenacre to C. C also knows
    about A’s interest. C registers her title and the Registrar gives notice to A.

    C now claims that she is not bound to allow A to use Greenacre.

    Advise A whether he can have the register rectified to reflect its interest.
