Why we are working towards this

This will deliver:

  • a reduction in stock levels and deliver casework within improved timeframes
  • quick and efficient land and property transactions that support a thriving Scottish economy
  • data and insight so anyone can answer the question ‘who owns Scotland?’

* We originally under-reported this figure as 7,782, amending  to 11,417
