Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

General provision about applications

Section 33: Recording in application record

104.Subsection (1) recognises that the Land Register application record closes at the end of each business day and that where applications for registration are made after this, the effective date of application will be the next day that the application record opens.

Section 34: Withdrawal and amendments etc. of application

105.This section provides for the so-called “one-shot principle”: that an application cannot be supplemented or substituted after the date of application unless the Keeper consents. Detailed provision can be made in the Land Register rules for that consent.
