Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Completion of registration

Section 30: Completion of registration of plot

101.This section draws together the duties of the Keeper in relation to registration on acceptance of an application for first registration, voluntary registration or in relation to a Keeper-induced registration. Subsection (2) lists the practical duties the Keeper must perform to complete registration of a plot of land in the Land Register for the first time.

Section 31: Completion of registration of deed

102.This section provides the duties of the Keeper on acceptance of an application for registration of a deed by virtue of section 26. These provisions are not applicable to cases in which the plot of land has to be registered too. The most common instances of registrations under this section will be transfers of the whole of a plot, a transfer of part of a plot and registrations of a standard security.

Section 32: References to certain entries in Register of Inhibitions

103.This section makes provision for what the Keeper must do when an application to register a deed has been accepted but the validity of the deed may be affected by an entry in the Register of Inhibitions. In these circumstances, after the Keeper has accepted the application, a reference to the entry in the Register of Inhibitions must be entered in the title sheet. Subsection (3) provides two exceptions: (a) for notices of land attachments; and (b) for notices of actions of reduction (used to enforce inhibitions). This is because other enactments already provide for these notices to enter the Land Register by registration.
