Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 82: Referral to the Lands Tribunal for Scotland

194.This section will allow anyone with an interest to refer questions relating to the accuracy of the register and what may need to be done to rectify the register to the Lands Tribunal for Scotland. The power mirrors the two limbs for the rectification of inaccuracies contained in section 80. It allows the Lands Tribunal discretion to determine whether a question is one which has a connection with the accuracy of the Land Register, e.g. to resolve a dispute over a boundary between properties or the existence of a servitude. Giving the Tribunal this jurisdiction provides parties with an alternative to the ordinary courts to have questions regarding the accuracy of the register determined. Subsection (2) provides for notice by the Lands Tribunal once a question has been determined, to the applicant, the Keeper and any other interested parties. Otherwise the processes will be regulated by the Lands Tribunal rules and the discretion of the Tribunal. It will remain for the Keeper to decide under section 80 how to reflect the Lands Tribunal’s determination (subject to appeal).
