8Registration of agricultural charges.

(1)Every agricultural charge shall be registered under this Act within seven clear days after the execution thereof, and, if not so registered, shall be void as against any person other than the society:

Provided that the Court of Session on proof that omission to register within such time as aforesaid was accidental or due to inadvertence may extend the time for registration on such terms as the Court thinks fit.

(2)The Assistant Registrar of Friendly Societies for Scotland (hereinafter called the Registrar) shall keep a register of agricultural charges in such form and containing such particulars as may be prescribed.

(3)Where it is desired to register an agricultural charge, a memorandum of the instrument creating the charge, and such particulars of the charge as may be prescribed shall, together with the prescribed fee, be sent by post or delivered to the Registrar at his office, and the Registrar shall forthwith enter the particulars in the register and shall file the memorandum.

(4)The register kept and the memoranda filed under this section shall at all reasonable times be open to inspection by any person on payment (except where the inspection is made by or on behalf of a bank) of the prescribed fee, and any person inspecting the register or any such filed memorandum on payment (except as aforesaid) of the prescribed fee may make copies or extracts therefrom.

(5)Any person may on payment of the prescribed fee require to be furnished with a copy of any entry in the register or of a filed memorandum or any part thereof certified to be a true copy by the Registrar.

(6)Registration of an agricultural charge may be proved by the production of a certified copy of the entry in the register relating to the charge, and a copy of any entry purporting to be certified as a true copy by the Registrar shall in all legal proceedings be evidence of the matters stated therein without proof of the signature or authority of the person signing it.

(7)The Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies may, subject to the approval of the Treasury, make regulations prescribing anything which under this section is to be prescribed, and generally as to the keeping of the register and the filing of memoranda, the removal of entries from the register on proof of discharge, and the rectification of the register.
