first registration

a registration that takes place when a property is registered in the Land Registers of Scotland for the first time. This can happen in one of three ways:

  • as a triggered registration when a property in the General Register of Sasines is sold
  • in the absence of a transaction where the owner of a property applies for voluntary registration
  • where the keeper induces registration
