News item first posted on: 07/12/16

The FCFCG-led partnership, Growing Together is delighted to have worked with the Community Land Advisory Service [CLAS] Scotland to provide this timely and important tool for communities in Scotland.

This resource provides information and guidance on how to find out who owns land in Scotland using the nationalland title registers,the Land Register of Scotland and the Register of Sasines (pronounced “say-zeens”). For nearly 400 years, it has been impossible to become the owner of land and buildings in Scotland without registering one’s title in one or other of these registers. Accordingly they are a highly comprehensive source of information as to land ownership.
