Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Paragraphs 1 to 6

271.Paragraphs 1 to 6 contain provisions about the treatment of existing title sheets. They become part of the Title Sheet Record and as such, title sheets for plots of land, or lease title sheets. The Keeper is given the power to make existing title sheets conform to the new scheme but is generally not obliged to do so. The C section on new title sheets will be called the “securities section”. The Keeper will have the power to change the name of the C section (currently called the “charges” section) to the securities section. An existing title sheet for the tenant's interest in a lease will become a lease title sheet.
