The Scottish Standard Clauses (Edition 1), designed to represent a Scotland-wide approach to standard clauses for use in residential conveyancing transactions, came into effect on 5 January 2015 and were replaced by Edition 2 which came into effect on 3 May 2016.
It is hoped the Scottish Standard Clauses will lend greater certainty and efficiency in concluding missives than that afforded by the regime of regional standard missives.
