(2)Notwithstanding—

(a)any restriction imposed by subsection (1) above on the power under that subsection to assign such a lease; or

(b)any rule of law to the contrary,

it shall be, and shall be deemed always to have been, competent in an assignation under this section

[F20(i)]to impose conditions and make stipulations [F21or

(ii)to import such conditions and stipulations,]

which, upon the F22... registration under the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 of the assignee’s interest [F23or the registration of such assignation under the Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012 (asp 5) or the recording of such assignation ], shall be as effectual against any singular successor of the assignee in the subjects assigned as if such assignee had been a grantee of the lease [F24and, as the case may be, the grantee's interest or the lease had been so registered or the lease had been duly recorded.]

[F25(2A)Any person entitled to grant an assignation under this section may—

(a)execute a deed containing such conditions, or stipulations, as may be specified in an assignation under subsection (2) above; and

(b)register such conditions and stipulations in the Land Register of Scotland or, as the case may be, record the deed in the Register of Sasines,

(b)in defrayal of a contribution towards some continuing cost related to the lands and heritages subject to the lease assigned; or

(c)under a heritable security.

Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
