Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 41: Notification to proprietor

114.This section provides for notification to the proprietor in two cases. First, where there is an application for a first registration of a plot of land under section 21 as a result of the conditions under section 25 being met. An example is an application for registration of an assignation of an unregistered lease over unregistered land. The second case is where the Keeper has performed a Keeper-induced registration under section 29. In both cases, the owner of the land may be unaware that the plot of land has been registered in the Land Register.

115.Subsection (3) provides that the duty on the Keeper in subsections (1) and (2) does not need to be carried out when it is not reasonably practicable to do so.
