Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Schedule 5: Minor and consequential modifications

Overview

281.This schedule makes minor and consequential changes. Most of the changes are either consequential on the repeal of parts of the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 and its replacement with the Act or consequential on the amendments to the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995 and the extension of the means of documents being self-proving from requiring to be “subscribed” (which is a paper only process) to also being capable of being “authenticated” (that is, authenticated as valid electronic documents in accordance with regulations made under the 1995 Act).

Paragraph 1 - Lands Clauses Consolidation (Scotland) Act 1845

282.This amends the note about mode of execution under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995 to take account of documents in electronic form.

Paragraph 2 - Commissioners Clauses Act 1847

283.Subparagraph (2) amends the 1847 Act to take account of the extension of the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995 to documents in electronic form. Subparagraph (3) replaces the specific reference to the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995 with a more general reference to the Act.

Paragraph 3 - Ordnance Board Transfer Act 1855

285.This amends the Schedules to the 1862 Act to take account of documents in electronic form under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.

Paragraph 5 - Land Registers (Scotland) Act 1868 (c.64)

286.The effect of this amendment is to make clear that the provisions of the 1868 Act which are referred to do not apply to the Land Register.

Paragraph 6 - Titles to Land Consolidation (Scotland) Act 1868

287.Subparagraphs (2) and (3), which are about litigiosity, are disapplied in relation to the Land Register. The reason is that the situations they deal with will be dealt with by caveats.

288.Subparagraph (4) amends the form in Schedule B to the 1868 Act to take account of documents in electronic form under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.

Paragraph 7 - Conveyancing (Scotland) Act 1874

289.Subparagraph (2) amends the note about mode of execution in Schedule M to the 1874 Act to take account of documents in electronic form under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.

Paragraph 8 - Trusts (Scotland) Act 1921

290.Subparagraphs (2) and (3) amend the notes about mode of execution in the Schedules to the 1921 Act to take account of documents in electronic form under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.

Paragraph 9 - Conveyancing (Scotland) Act 1924

291.Subparagraph (2) adds a reference to the Land Register of Scotland to section 2(5).

292.Subparagraph (3) is consequential on the repeal of schedule K by the Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Act 2000 schedule 13(1) paragraph 1.

293.Subparagraph (4) is similar to the provisions in paragraph 6(2) and (3) above concerning the Titles to Land Consolidation (Scotland) Act 1868. It disapplies the provisions of the 1924 Act in relation to the Land Register, because the matters in question will be dealt with by the caveat procedure.

294.Subparagraph (5) amends schedule B to take account of documents in electronic form under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.

Paragraph 10 - Burgh Registers (Scotland) Act 1926

295.This paragraph is self-explanatory.

Paragraph 11 - Public Registers and Records (Scotland) Act 1948

296.This paragraph repeals a power to prescribe the forms of documents in the Sasines register made redundant by the Act.

Paragraph 12 - Land Drainage (Scotland) Act 1958

297.This paragraph amends the definition of long lease by adding a reference to the Land Register.

Paragraph 13 - Harbours Act 1964

298.This paragraph amends the definition of long lease by adding a reference to the Land Register.

Paragraph 14 - Succession (Scotland) Act 1964

299.This amendment is consequential on the changes made to the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995. The reference to section 4 is replaced by a reference to the equivalent provision in the 1995 Act as amended.

302.This paragraph amends the definition of long lease by adding a reference to the Land Register.

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.

309.Subparagraph (4) inserts a new section 1A into the 1973 Act clarifying the effect of prescription on a right which was previously void (as opposed to voidable).

310.Subparagraph (5) adds a reference to registration in the Land Register to the end of section 15(1) of the 1973 Act.

311.Subparagraphs (6) and (7) make changes to schedule 1 of the 1973 Act to implement the policy that the period of negative prescription should be five years for claims against the Keeper where the Register has been rectified in favour of the claimant and twenty years for claims against the Keeper arising out of breach of warranty or from the operation of the realignment principle.

312.Subparagraph (8) amends schedule 3 to the 1973 Act by adding the obligation of the Keeper to rectify an inaccuracy to the list of imprescriptible rights and obligations.
