This book provides comprehensive coverage of the law and practice involved in a conveyancing transaction, from the initial taking of instructions from the client to the registration of the disposition and standard security in the Land Register.
For many years now Gretton and Reid’s Conveyancing has been the 'go-to' text for those requiring guidance in this fast-moving area of law. This new edition has been substantially re-written in the light of the sweeping changes brought about by the Land Registration etc (Scotland) Act 2012 and by other significant legislation including the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (Scotland) Act 2013 and the Legal Writings (Counterparts and Delivery) (Scotland) Act 2015. Account is taken of more than 500 cases decided since the previous edition. Future changes to law and practice are anticipated, including the introduction of electronic registration which will largely replace the registration of paper deeds in Scotland.
Throughout this book Professors Gretton and Reid combine academic understanding with practical knowledge to guide practitioners through the conveyancing maze. It is an essential purchase for practitioners which will save valuable time and help get things right at the outset.
