EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)

The Act of Sederunt (Sheriff Court Rules) (Miscellaneous Amendments) 2009 includes provisions amending the four principal sets of sheriff court rules so as to include a requirement that in proceedings relating to a regulated agreement within the meaning of section 189(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, the pursuer requires to lodge a copy of the agreement when presenting the initial writ or summons.

Those provisions were to come into effect on 1 December 2009. This Act of Sederunt amends the aforementioned Act of Sederunt before it comes into force, with the effect that the said requirement is no longer part of that Act of Sederunt when it comes into force.
