The sasine register is the oldest national public land register in the world, dating back to 1617.
- record a deed in the sasine register
- voluntarily register a sasine plot of land in the land register
- search for a property’s owner
- order a copy of a deed
This register consists of a chronological list of land deeds, which contain written descriptions of properties.
We’re gradually replacing the sasine register with the map-based Land Register of Scotland. We will close the sasine register by 2024.
The sasine register is closed to the registration of deeds relating to:
- standard securities
- assignations of leases
- registered plots of land or leases registered in the land register
You can still record some deeds, including:
- discharges of standard securities
- improvement grants
- guardianship orders
