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

(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,

(2C) Where F13... a deed provides for the postponement of effectiveness of any conditions or, as the case may be, stipulations to—
