Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003

Section 26: Notice of proposal to transfer land

84.Where a tenant’s interest in acquiring the land comprised in the lease is registered under section 25 of the 2003 Act and the owner of that land (or the creditor in a standard security with a right to sell, where appropriate) proposes to transfer that land or any part of it to another person then subsection (1) of this section requires (unless the transfer is a transfer falling within section 27 and, therefore, not requiring notice to be given) the owner (or creditor, as the case may be) to give written notice of that fact to the tenant and to send a copy of that notice to the Keeper. Ministers will be able to prescribe the form and nature of that notice, by virtue of subsection (2).
