Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 54: Registration of decree of reduction

151.This section inserts a new section 46A into the Conveyancing (Scotland) Act 1924, the effect of which will be that where a voidable deed is reduced, the decree does not immediately change real rights that have been entered in the Land Register. Instead, section 46A(1)(b) provides that the decree has effect on those rights when it is registered in the Land Register. The real rights of the parties concerned thus only change as of the date of the registration of the decree.

152.Subsection (3) ensures that an arbitral award ordering reduction of a deed and made under the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010 can where appropriate have equivalent effect as is provided for a decree of reduction under subsection (1).
