Applicant Statement and Declaration
I swear or arm that the information contained in this notice is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, true.
This notice is sent by a person who is seeking to become a prescriptive claimant under section 43 of the Land Registration etc. (Scot-
land) Act 2012 in respect of the land detailed in the notice. This means that the person is seeking to register a disposition in their favour
in the Land Register of Scotland which, on certain other criteria relating to possession being met, will result in them becoming the
owner of the land in question. You have been notied as a person who (a) appears to be the proprietor of the land or (b) appears to be
a person who may be able to become proprietor of the land or (c) as a representative of the Crown. The notice will specify which of the
three categories you have been notied under. If you have been notied as a person who may become owner the links between the last
known owner and you will be detailed in the notice.
This notice does not require you to take any action. However, if you consider that you do own or are capable of becoming owner of the
land in question and you wish to challenge the prescriptive claim or to negotiate a sale you are advised to contact your solicitor or other
Please note if the prescriptive claim proceeds to registration you may be notied again by the Keeper of the Registers of
Scotland. The Keepers notication will contain guidance on how to respond to that notication.
