Blacklocks v JB Developments [1982]


  • Farm land was sold to a purchaser, the defendant, but included a parcel of land which was not intended to form part of the transaction
  • The claimant built a barn on the disputed parcel of land


  • Could the claimant have the register corrected to reflect the mistake?


  • Yes


  • The claimant had been in actual occupation by virtue of the building of the barn of the land such that his interest took priority over that of the defendant
  • This resulted in a right to have the register corrected
