This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)Subject to subsection (2), the Keeper must accept an application for registration forwarded under section 7(3)(b) if it is accompanied by such documents and other evidence as the Keeper may require.

(2)An application for registration must not be accepted by the Keeper if—

(a)it relates to a croft which is not sufficiently described to enable the Keeper to identify it by reference to the ordnance map or such other map as the Keeper may require;

(b)the information otherwise contained in or accompanying it would not enable the Keeper to make up or, as the case may be, amend the registration schedule of the croft;

(c)in a case where the application relates to a registered croft, the application does not bear a reference to the registration schedule of that croft;

(d)payment of the fee payable in respect of such registration has not been tendered.

(3)But the Keeper may accept an application for registration despite the fact that the description of the croft includes land which is already entered in the registration schedule of—

(a)another croft;

(b)a common grazing; or

(c)land held runrig,

as part of the description of the land which comprises that other croft, that common grazing or, as the case may be, that land held runrig.

(4)On receipt of an application for registration, the Keeper must without delay note the date of receipt.

(5)That date is deemed for the purposes of this Part as the date of registration provided the Keeper, after examination, accepts the application and, in the case of a first registration (other than of a new croft or other than as a result of the taking of the step mentioned in section 4(4)(p))—

(a)no application is made to the Land Court under section 14(1); or

(b)such an application having been made—

(i)the application has been abandoned; or

(ii)the Court makes no order or makes an order under section 14(4)(b).
