‘The Court of Appeal decision in Rashid v Nasrullah is an important one in relation to adverse

decision in Parshall v Bryans [2013] EWCA Civ 240, that a registered proprietor can be in
adverse possession of registered land. It also held that, where registered land is transferred by

Registration Act 1925 was that, although the fraudster acquired the legal estate he held it on
trust for the real owner.’
