Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Paragraph 17 - Conveyancing and Feudal Reform (Scotland) Act 1970

303.The 1970 Act was not amended by the 1979 Act so as to take account of the introduction of the Land Register. The 1970 Act was instead subject to the "translation" provision in section 29(2) of the 1979 Act under which references to the Register of Sasines and the recording of deeds in that register were deemed to be references to the Land Register or registration. This approach has not made the 1970 Act easy to understand. The majority of amendments in this paragraph are designed to add references (where appropriate) to the Land Register.

304.The amendment to section 28(5) updates the means of describing the security subjects in a decree of foreclosure following the partial repeal of the 1979 Act.

305.The notes that are found in various schedules about mode of execution under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995 are amended to take account of documents in electronic form.
