Applications for granting or assigning a lease 

Where the deed being registered is the grant of a new lease, sub-lease or is an assignation of an existing lease or sub-lease, the fee is calculated on the total of the consideration (if any) provided for in the deed plus 10 times the relevant rent. Relevant rent means the largest amount of annual rent a lease reserves within the first 10 years of its term that can be;

(a) quantified, or

(b) estimated, where that amount cannot be quantified,

at the date an application to register the grant of lease is made.

For example, where the annual rent that would be payable in the first year of a lease would be £100 but the lease specifies that the rent that would be due on the 10th year of the lease would be £10,000 the fee would be based on 10 x £10,000.

The fee payable is calculated using the rates specified in the column headed 'Paper' in the table for Conveyance above. Where an application is submitted using ARTL the fees specified the column headed 'ARTL' of the table for Conveyance above.

Applications for deeds where land is excambed or exchanged

For applications to register a deed where the land has been excambed, or exchanged, the fee is based on the value of the land. The Current fee payable is calculated using the rates specified in the column headed 'Paper' in the table for Conveyance above.

Applications for voluntary registration

Where an application for voluntary registration is made under section 27 of the Act a reduced fee applies. The fee represents a 25% discount against the standard registration fee and is calculated on the value of the plot of land. The fee is at the rates shown in the 'Voluntary registration' column of the table of fees above.

Where an application for voluntary registration under section 27 is entered in the application record on the same date as an application to register a standard security, and the standard security relates to the whole extent of the plot of land to be registered, no fee is payable in respect of the application for voluntary registration. A fee of £60 is still payable in respect of the standard security.

Where the standard security relates to only part of the plot of land to be voluntarily registered, or where the standard security is over both registered and unregistered land, the zero fee for voluntary registration does not apply and the discounted fee at the rate shown in the 'Voluntary registration' column of the table of fees above is payable.

Advance Notices

The fee payable for an application to enter an advance notice in the application record is £10.

The fee payable for an application to discharge an advance notice entered in the application record is £10.

Application affecting multiple title sheets

Where an application to register a deed is made that affects two or more title sheets, in addition to the fees specified above, an additional fee of £60 is payable for every title sheet affected by the deed other than the first.

Application to register a Disposition (evacuating survivorship destination)

Where an application to register a Disposition over registered subjects is made and the sole purpose is to evacuate a survivorship destination the fee payable is £60. 

For unregistered subjects, the fee payable is calculated on the market value of the subjects.

Register of Sasines

Completion of title

Where the recording of a completion of title by decree or a notice of title is made, the fee is calculated on the value of the property to which the recording is made. The fee that is payable is calculated on the rates specified in column headed 'Paper' in the table for Conveyance above

Advance Notices

The fee payable for an application for recording an Advance Notice for First Registration is £10.

The fee payable for an application recording a Discharge of an Advance Notice in the Register of Sasines is £10.

Other deeds

Recording by memorandum

Where any deed is presented in the Register of Sasines for recording by memorandum in more than one county, a fee of £60 for each memorandum is payable.

Additional information

We may charge additional fees for transactions where:

  • they affect more than one registered title in the Land Register
  • the relevant deed must be recorded in more than one county in the Sasine Register
  • the deed contains new real burdens or servitudes, as this means the transaction must be registered against more than one property
