1Insert name and address of superior.S
2Describe the land in a way that is sufficient to enable the Keeper to identify it by reference to the Ordnance Map. Where the title to the land has been registered in the Land Register the description should refer to the title number of the land or of the larger subjects of which the land forms part. Otherwise it should normally refer to and identify a deed recorded in a specified division of the Register of Sasines.S
3Insert one or more of the following:S
“The dominant tenement has on it a [specify type of building] at [specify address of building] which is within 100 metres of the servient tenement.”;
“The real burden comprises a right to enter, or otherwise make use of, the servient tenement.”;
“The real burden comprises a right of [specify pre-emption or redemption (or both)].”.
“The dominant tenement comprises, and (as is apparent from the terms of the real burden) that burden was created for the benefit of, [specify minerals or salmon fishings or some other incorporeal property].”.
4Specify by reference to the appropriate Register the deed or deeds in which the real burden or counter-obligation was imposed. Set out the real burden or counter-obligation in full or refer to the deed in such a way as to identify the real burden or counter— obligation.S
5Where the title has been registered in the Land Register of Scotland and the superior is—S
(a)registered as proprietor, specify the title number;
(b)not registered as proprietor, specify the title number and set out the midcouples or links between the person last registered and the superior so as sufficiently to identify them.
Where the title has not been registered in the Land Register and the superior—
(a)has a recorded title, specify by reference to the Register of Sasines the deed constituting the immediate title;
(b)does not have a recorded title, either—
(i)specify by reference to the Register of Sasines the deed constituting the immediate title of the person with the last recorded title and set out the midcouples or links between that person and the superior so as sufficiently to identify them; or
(ii)if there is no such deed, specify the nature of the superior’s title.
6Do not complete until a copy of the notice has been sent to the owner of the prospective servient tenement (except in a case where this is not reasonably practicable). Then insert whichever is applicable of the following:S
“The superior has sent a copy of this notice by [specify whether by recorded delivery or registered post or by ordinary post] on [date of posting] to the owner of the prospective servient tenement at [state address].”; or
“It has not been reasonably practicable to send a copy of this notice to the owner of the prospective servient tenement for the following reason: [specify the reason].”.
7The superior should not swear or affirm, or sign, until a copy of the notice has been sent (or otherwise) as mentioned in note 6. Before signing the superior should swear or affirm before a notary public (or, if the notice is being completed outwith Scotland, before a person duly authorised under the local law to administer oaths or receive affirmations) that, to the best of the superior’s knowledge and belief, all the information contained in the notice is true. The notary public should also sign. Swearing or affirming a statement which is known to be false or which is believed not to be true is a criminal offence under the False Oaths (Scotland) Act 1933. Normally the superior should swear or affirm, and sign, personally. If, however, the superior is legally disabled or incapable (for example, because of mental disorder) his legal representative should swear or affirm and sign. If the superior is not an individual (for example, if it is a company) a person entitled by law to sign formal documents on its behalf should swear or affirm and sign.S
