Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003

Paragraph 19

305.Under section 20 of the 1991 Act a landlord can raise an action of removing in the sheriff court for non-payment of rent. This paragraph transfers jurisdictions over such actions from the sheriff court to the Land Court. The reference to sheriff court procedure in section 20 is therefore repealed. The form of procedure to be used in the Land Court will be regulated by the Land Court Rules.
