Coronavirus legislation extension

Published: 18 June 2021

The Scottish Government intend to introduce a Bill to extend and expire provisions in the two Scottish Coronavirus Acts.

The Coronavirus (Extension and Expiry) (Scotland) Bill will not introduce any new provisions and will continue to operate the safeguards put in place in the first two Acts.

How this affects Registers of Scotland

The Bill will extend provisions in the first Coronavirus (Scotland) Act.

This enables digital submission of applications to the property registers and extends the period of protection provided by advance notices.

In the second Coronavirus (Scotland) Act, provisions relate to the Register of Inhibitions and the Register of Judgments.

This enables registration/recording and the issuing of documents in those registers to proceed on the basis of electronic submission to and by the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland.
