Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003

Section 38: Referral of certain matters by Lands Tribunal to Land Court

119.This section provides that where, in an appeal against valuation under section 37, an issue of law arises that can competently be determined by the Land Court by virtue of its jurisdiction under either the 2003 Act or the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 1991 the Lands Tribunal should refer that issue to the Land Court for determination unless the Tribunal considers that it is not appropriate to do so. This enables the Tribunal to refer appropriate legal issues falling within the jurisdiction of the Land Court which may arise in the course of an appeal against valuation to that Court for determination.
