Land registration

The Society responded to the Registers of Scotland consultation on the implementation of the Land Registration etc (Scotland) Act 2012, which will reform the law in relation to the registration of rights to land in the Land Register of Scotland. The Society supported many of the proposals; however, did not agree that the date of entry should no longer be included in the title sheet. The Society considers that the date of entry can be helpful, particularly in asserting prescriptive periods in insolvency situations.
