A revolution in Bermuda property law is about to occur. In December 2011, the Bermuda Government passed the Land Title Registration Act 2011 (“the Act”). The Act is not yet in force. Seemingly, this only awaits finalization of regulations and the holding of professional guidance seminars for attorneys. It is expected to be operative later in 2012. The Act will dramatically transform the way things are done in Bermuda real estate law.
