Rights and Interests — Deposited Documents

  •  (1) Where a right or interest in Category IA or IA-N land or a building situated thereon evidenced by a document deposited pursuant to subsection 152(1) of the Act or under paragraph 36(1)(b) of these Regulations is identified and depicted on a land registry plan the identification and depiction of such a right or interest shall clearly differentiate it from a right or interest that is registered pursuant to these Regulations.

  • (2) For greater certainty, the deposit under subsection 36(1) of a document referred to in paragraph 36(1)(b) does not constitute registration pursuant to these Regulations of any right or interest evidenced by the document and the identification and depiction, on a land registry plan, of a right or interest pursuant to subsection (1) does not constitute registration of the right or interest pursuant to these Regulations.
