'A non domino' - can you still get title to land out of nothing?

Frances Rooney, head of Harper Macleod's Land Registration team, has co-written the latest of a series of articles on the new land registration regime. The article, produced in conjuction with Registers of Scotland, has been published in the Journal of the Law Society of Scotland and provides assistance on the legal and practical effects of the Land Registration etc (Scotland) Act 2012.

This month's article looks at the possibility of deeds being granted by non-owners, the special statutory procedure for registration of such deeds, and the effect on onward sales.
