Inksters are Ready: What does the NEW Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012 mean for you?

08 December 2014

Following the last two years of preparation by the Registers of Scotland the team at Inksters have been working round the clock to ensure that our Legal Processes are ready for the transition between the old Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 and the new system being introduced by Registers of Scotland today.

So how does the new Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012 affect our clients and what changes will Registers of Scotland’s new system bring.

  • The introduction of Advance Notices brings our clients an additional protection for just a small £10 fee. Advanced Notices are a means of protecting your right to register acquired property for a period of 35 days. Inksters welcome this new development and will be advising our clients of this added protection. Whilst the advance notice is not mandatory the team at Inksters aim to protect our clients interests at every step of the way during the Conveyancing process.
  • A move towards ‘Paperless’ and On-line systems. Inksters already have our digital systems in place and thus can integrate with the new system at Registers of Scotland smoothly. As an environmentally friendly firm Inksters welcome the move towards on-line and paperless processes. For our client this means efficiency and quick turn around of Registration of property.
  • The streamlined processing of documents introduced by Registers of Scotland’s new system dovetails nicely with Inksters way of working and offers our clients efficient processing of documents, managed and stored digital data and a move further towards paperless environment.

At Inksters we pride ourselves on having robust, adaptive and responsive legal processes, which can react to changes within the Law. We do this to protect our client’s interests in the ever changing digital revolution. Inksters Forward Thinking Responsive Law, at its finest putting our clients first.
