71B .         Replacing duplicate certificates of title

        (1)         The Registrar may, upon the delivery to him of a duplicate Crown grant or duplicate certificate of title, issue a new duplicate certificate of title in the place of the existing duplicate Crown grant or duplicate certificate of title, which shall thereupon be cancelled.

        (2)         Where the Registrar is of opinion that, because of the condition of dilapidation of a duplicate certificate of title or Crown grant lodged with him for any purpose, it should be replaced by a new duplicate certificate of title, he may —

            (a)         require the proprietor of the land the subject of the certificate of title or Crown grant to apply for a new duplicate certificate of title;

            (b)         retain the Crown grant or certificate of title so dilapidated until the proprietor applies for a new duplicate certificate of title.
