Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
Land belonging to the Crown by virtue of the fact that it has never been granted to anyone else, or has reverted to the Crown by Escheat. This land is neither Freehold nor Leasehold, but an entirely different kind of land ownership from that of private individuals. Conventionally, most of the foreshore is considered to be Crown demesne land. Under the Land Registration Act (2002) there is a scheme by which demesne land can be converted into freehold land, so that it can be registered. This is to allow the Crown to protect its land against adverse possession.
