SB 12-35 Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3

The Land Register was created under the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 (c 33) and since 2003 has been operational across the whole of Scotland.

The Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Bill, introduced in the Scottish Parliament on 1 December 2011, is a lengthy, technical and complex piece of legislation designed to address difficulties which have arisen with the land registration system as it is operating at present. It is based on a report of the Scottish Law Commission.

Stage 3 proceedings on the Bill are scheduled for 31 May 2012. This briefing summarises some of the key proposals in the Bill and considers some of the issues focused on by the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee at Stage 1 and how these issues were addressed during the Stage 2 proceedings associated with the Bill.
