Title Conditions (Scotland) Act 2003

Section 68: Requirement for repetition etc. of terms of real burden in future deed

295.In imposing real burdens there is sometimes added a requirement that the burdens be repeated in all future transmissions of the land on pain of nullity. The enforceability of this requirement is open to question; but special statutory provision (section 9(3) and (4) of the Conveyancing (Scotland) Act 1924) has been made for curing a failure to comply. Section 68 dispenses with any requirement to repeat burdens. The opportunity is also taken, in schedule 15, to repeal section 9(3) and (4) of the 1924 Act. This is a technical change only, and no change of practice is envisaged. In Sasine transactions and first registrations, dispositions will continue to list the burdens writs in order to avoid a claim in warrandice in respect of latent burdens.
