Unifi Scotland launches new website

11 December 2014 | tagged News release

Scottish-based think tank, Unifi Scotland, has launched a brand new website hoping to engage more lawyers in discussion about the future of land and property.

Unifi aims to encourage and stimulate debate in the field of land and property and promote a coordinated response to the challenges and opportunities ahead. Currently, the organisation is concerned that information relating to Scotland’s land and property base is not being shared as extensively and efficiently as it could be.

Professor Stewart Brymer. Chairman at Unifi Scotland, said: “It is said that we live in the age of the ‘information society’, but how informed are we when it comes to the conveyancing system? What proportion of the information accumulated by the public and private sectors is readily and conveniently available to the people, organisations and communities who could benefit?

“Unifi Scotland are keen to seen this situation improve and we are working with national and local stakeholders including the Government, Registers of Scotland, Ordnance Survey, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Council of Mortgage lenders in Scotland to see what can be done. We are also looking at what is being done in other countries, most recently in Norway where there is a dedicated information portal.

“I would encourage anyone that’s interested in Unifi’s work to take a look at our new website and get in touch.”
