Financial Effects  of the Act


247.A number of provisions in the Act will take effect on Royal Assent, but the majority will not be commenced until the appointed day for abolition of the feudal system. This is expected to be at least 2 years after Royal Assent in order to allow transitional arrangements such as the registering (or recording) of notices to be made. It is also envisaged that the Bill on title conditions will be commenced at the same time as the Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Act.
