Long Leases (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 68: Exemption and recall notices: supplementary

264.This section sets out rules for the service and registration of a notice of exemption or a notice of recall.

265.Subsections (2) and (3) provide for the sending of a copy of the exemption notice or recall notice to the landlord of the qualifying or exempt lease and any landlord of a superior lease. Service can be on the person who is registered as landlord. Normally service is by post, and must precede registration. The notice must contain a statement about service, or an explanation as to why service was not reasonably practicable.

266.Subsection (4) requires the notice to be registered against the title of the tenant. This allows anyone dealing with the lease to see the position.
