Section 162 – Registration of notice of litigiosity and discharge of notice

440.This section inserts new section 159A into the Titles to Land Consolidation (Scotland) Act 1868.

New section 159A – Registration of notice of summons of action of reduction

441.This section applies where an inhibiting creditor raises an action of reduction of a deed granted in breach of an inhibition. The inhibiting creditor must register a notice of the signeted summons in the action in the Register of Inhibitions and in the Land Register of Scotland or the Register of Sasines (see subsection (2)). This provides notice in the personal and the property registers that the land in question is litigious pending the outcome of the action of reduction. An inhibiting creditor who fails to obtain a decree of reduction will discharge the notice in the form prescribed by regulations so that the land no longer appears as litigious in the property registers (see subsection (3)).
