Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 56: Advance notices

157.This section sets out the criteria for an advance notice. Paragraphs (a) to (c) of subsection (1) set out the requirements for advance notices generally. Paragraph (d) applies just to advance notices where the property is on the Land Register. Paragraph (e) applies for property that is not in the Land Register, most of which will be recorded in the General Register of Sasines. The difference in requirements relates to how the property must be identified.

158.Subsection (2) means mapping is not required for an advance notice relating to a flat in a tenement or in a flatted building when the building is mapped as a single cadastral unit. That is subject to similar exceptions for pertinents as for registration under Part 2 of the Act.
