The term provision is used to describe a definable element in a piece of legislation that has legislative effect – such as a Part, Chapter or section. A version of a provision is prospective either:
Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring this prospective version into force.
Note: Point in time prospective is the latest available view of the legislation that includes by default all the prospective changes that might come into force.
There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.

They are therefore not accessible when viewing legislation as at a specific point in time. To view the ‘Changes to Legislation’ information for this provision return to the latest version view using the options provided in the ‘What Version’ box above.
This section lists the changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act, associated Parts and Chapters where applicable. This includes any insertions of whole new Parts, Chapters or provisions yet to be inserted into this Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing.

If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.

For section 61 (arbitrations) of the 1991 Act there is substituted—
(1)Subject to subsection (2) below, where this Act makes provision for any matter to be determined by the Land Court, the matter may, if the landlord and tenant so agree at or after the time when the matter arises, instead of being so determined, be determined by arbitration.
(2)Subsection (1) above does not apply in relation to any matter which may be determined by the Land Court—
(a)in pursuance of section 8(6), 11, 12, 22, 26, 32, 39, 41(1), 55(7) or 66(2) or (2A) of this Act; or
(3)In this Act, other than in section 61A, “arbitration” includes any other method of resolving the matter; and “arbiter” shall be construed accordingly.
(1)This section applies to any arbitration to which a matter is referred by the landlord and tenant under section 61(1) of this Act.
(2)The agreement of the parties to refer the matter to arbitration shall have the effect of depriving each party of his right to—
(a)have the matter heard (or any issue in relation to the matter determined) by the Land Court (other than on appeal); and
(b)agree under section 61(1) of this Act to another method of resolving the matter.
(3)It shall be for the landlord and tenant to agree whether the arbitration is conducted by—
(a)a single arbiter; or
(b)two arbiters (with or without an oversman),
and the arbiter or, as the case may be, each arbiter, may be appointed by the parties or by a person nominated by them.
(4)The procedure to be followed at arbitration (including any matters to be taken into account by the arbiter and the matters to be contained in his award) shall, subject to subsection (5) below, be as the parties agree or, in the absence of such agreement, as the arbiter considers appropriate.
(5)Any provision of this Act that would apply to the Land Court as respects its consideration or determination of any matter had the matter not been referred to arbitration shall apply as respects the consideration or determination of the matter by arbitration.
(6)Any party to the arbitration may appeal to the Land Court against the arbiter’s award on a question of law within 28 days of the award; and in an appeal under this subsection the Court may—
(a)quash, confirm or vary the award or any part of it; and
(b)where the Court quashes the award or any part of it—
(i)remit the case to the arbiter for further procedure; and
(ii)direct the arbiter on any question of law relevant to the case.
