Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993 (c.44)
321.Section 29(1) of the 1993 Act provides that a sub-tenant of a croft is not a 1991 Act tenant. Paragraph 45(a) extends this exclusion to SLDTs and LDTs.
322.Section 30(5) of the 1993 Act states that nothing in that Act shall affect the provisions of the 1991 Act in relation to payment to outgoing tenants of compensation for improvement. Paragraph 45(b) extends this to include the 2003 Act as well as the 1991 Act.
323.Crofting landlords are permitted by paragraph 11 of Schedule 2 to the 1993 Act to enter onto a crofter’s land for a range of purposes. Paragraph 45(c) ensures that the crofter’s right to compensation for game damage in these circumstances relates to both the 1991 and 2003 Acts. The reference to determination by arbitration is removed, given the universal jurisdiction that the Land Court is to acquire in agricultural holdings disputes.
