Registers of Scotland (RoS) is conducting a research study with key stakeholders in advance of the Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012 and is inviting everyone who will be affected by the change to participate.

RoS has launched the study, in the form of a short survey to support the national communications campaign leading up to the designated day (8 December 2014). The confidential survey will be live until 14 October, 2014 and can be found by clicking on the following link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/Customer_Awareness.

RoS has also been gathering feedback for the study during its nationwide training and information Roadshows on the 2012 Act, which is visiting various locations across the country until the end of November to help businesses, organisations and advisors involved in land and property prepare for the biggest change to property registration for a generation.

Solicitor, Scott Brymer of  Brymer Legal Limited, attended the recent sold out Roadshow event at Carlton Hotel, Edinburgh. He said: “The 2012 Act represents a seismic shift in the way in which the practice of conveyancing will be done in Scotland.  Scottish conveyancers will have a Statute which is completely fit for purpose. Due acknowledgement must be given to the work of the Scottish Law Commission and Professors Gretton and Reid in particular.  Brymer Legal has a diverse range of clients with varying needs and budgets.  We pride ourselves in being, affordable, quick to respond, efficient and knowledgeable. Keeping up with changes to the law is part and parcel of that and, moreover, it is what our clients expect of us.

“As part of our preparations for the Designated Day, I attended the 2012 Act Roadshow event on 30 September in Edinburgh.  The event was well attended and the speakers were well informed, knowledgeable and very engaging.  I came away from the event with a lot to think about and a greater knowledge of how the new system will function. In particular, seeing a mock up of the new e-system was very useful.  I look forward to learning more and hope to embrace the new e-system when it launches for the benefit of our business and that of our clients.”
