Land Registration etc (Scotland) Act 2012

The Land Registration etc (Scotland) Act 2012 came into force on 8th December 2014.

One of the key priorities for the Act is to provide a scheme for the completion of the Land Register and the closure of the Register of Sasines.  For acceptance into the Land Register a deed must have a valid deed plan.  If a valid plan is not included then an application for registration may be rejected.

Bowlts can provide a comprehensive deed plan preparation service in accordance with the Registers of Scotland new Deed Plan Criteria. 

We can prepare anything from straightforward single dwelling plans to complex land holdings where it is useful to be able to map a large number of deeds to identify ownership.

Using industry standard ESRI GIS software we can scan and map old deeds from the Register of Sasines to create new plans which are Land Register compliant.
