Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015

Notification under section 50 of the 2003 Act

101.Section 47 of the Act amends section 50 of the 2003 Act. Section 50(1) sets out the circumstances in which the Lands Tribunal must notify Ministers that a landowner or creditor in a standard security with a right to sell the land has acted in breach of a prohibition notice under section 37(5)(e) or section 40(1) of the 2003 Act.

102.Section 47(a) of the Act amends subsection (3)(b) of section 50 of the 2003 Act. It inserts reference to any creditor with a right to sell the land. This requires Ministers to send a copy of the notice from the Lands Tribunal under section 50(1) to such a creditor as well as to the owner of the land.

103.Section 47(b) of the Act provides for a new subsection (6) to be inserted in section 50 of the 2003 Act. This sets out that a community interest in land remains in effect for the purposes of section 50(2)(c) where a community body has applied to re-register an interest under section 44(2) of the 2003 Act and the Keeper has re-entered the interest on the Register accordingly. Where a registered interest in land under consideration by the Lands Tribunal is due to expire, the relevant community body should ensure that it re-registers their interest in terms of section 44(2) of the 2003 Act. Section 50(2)(b) of the 2003 Act is repealed.
