‘Greater clarity’ is needed from the Scottish Government in relation to land-registration reform according to a report published today by the Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee.
In its stage one report on the Land Registration etc (Scotland) Bill, the committee welcomed the general principles of the bill which seeks to update and extend legislation relating to land registration.
However, the committee has called for more detail to be made available in relation to some areas of the bill including the scope of the proposed offence relating to registration.
The report also calls on the Scottish Government to consider the use of the Lands Tribunal for Scotland to resolve disputes between landowners.
