Section 128 – Interpretation
371.This section defines what is meant by expressions used in this Chapter. In particular, subsection (2) modifies the terminology used in relation to ownership and transfer of land so that it can be read as covering the equivalent terminology appropriate to attached land which is a long lease. Subsection (3) also provides the Scottish Ministers with power to modify the definitions of “decree” and “document of debt”. That power is exercisable by order subject to negative resolution procedure (see section 224(3)).
