Reclusion Perpetua
Perhaps it can be complicated by your father was tennant, but by he has paid the property tax more than 10 years (=the minimum) he can APPLY to get the title, although it ISN'T sure such applications will be approved. (To be sure it has to be in same family since back to close to WW II.)
I don't know if there are local differences, but in one place the application fee was around 2000p a few years ago.

I BELIEVE you need to pay a land survey too, to make clear exact where the borders are, if there aren't such done allready.

If I remember corect the +10 years cases are handled by OTHER than Register of Deeds office. (Perhaps the Land Registration Authorithy.) You can ask at the office so you apply at corect place.

inquire at the CENRO office if it can be titled under a special law, else he has to trace back ownershi until 1945.
