The emergency Coronavirus (Scotland) Bill

2nd April 2020

This Bill is likely to come into force next week.
Among other things, the Bill contains provisions that if passed will:
* enable the property registers to continue to function and accept new applications
* extend the existing 35 day period that an Advance Notice provides to applicants for a period of 10 days after the registers are fully reopened allowing essential property transactions already in progress to proceed to settlement
* allow people to submit applications for registration to the property registers digitally while the Registers of Scotland are temporarily unable to receive applications by post
