Casework arrears

Since the implementation of the 2012 Act on  the designated day of 8 December 2014, we have been working towards completing the arrear of casework that falls under the earlier legislation, the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979. The Keeper's service standard for this work is that it is all to be completed by 8 December 2015.

On 5 December 2014 (the end of week 36, 2014/15) the Land Register arrear consisted of 41,605 applications. On 8 December 2015 the 1979 Act arrear was 55. This is a reduction since Designated Day of 99.9%. The remaining applications were held up because the Keeper was in dialogue with the submitting agent.

On 2 April 2016 (the end of week 53, 2015/16) there were no applications left in the 1979 Act arrear.
