Chapter 14 - Miscellaneous topics
This is a chapter from the Bloomsbury Professional book The Abolition of Feudal Tenure in Scotland, which examines the abolition of feudal tenure in Scotland, in place since the twelfth century, on 28 November 2004. Abolition of the feudal system is the most important single change to have occurred in land law in Scotland. It made a profound change to land law and practice in Scotland and in this authoritative account, Professor Reid, the leading expert in this field, provides a clear and comprehensive guide to its implications. His approach is highly practical throughout and the book could prove an essential aid to help practitioners grapple with the complex legislative provisions reforming Scottish property law. Key sections of the Abolition of Feudal Tenure (Sc) Act 2000, as amended by the Title Conditions (Sc) Act 2003, and completed examples of forms prescribed by the Act are reproduced in the Appendices. The book provides an indispensable guide to the legislation and to its implications for conveyancing and the ownership of land and buildings.
