About the sasine register
Since the 1870s, properties in the sasine register have had chronological lists of deeds called search sheets.
Search sheets provide:
- a description of the title
- current and previous owners' names
- all recorded deeds that affect the title
- current and previous mortgage entries
- the price paid for each transfer or sale of the title
We may not be able to provide you with a plan for sasine-registered titles, but we will be able to provide you with a deed that contains the best boundary description of the property or area.
We’re replacing the sasine register with the map-based Land Register of Scotland.
You can still record some deeds, including:
- discharges of standard securities
- improvement grants
- guardianship orders
The sasine register will close by 2024.
