What property documents will I receive when I buy?
The title sheet is the official document that we provide relating to a particular property. It may contain some or all, of the following:
- property description
- registered owners
- securities or charges against the property
- burdens or responsibilities
The title plan shows the position and boundary of registered properties. The title plan is based on the Ordnance Survey map.
ScotLIS provides PDF copies of the title sheet and the title plan.
What information is publicly available on ScotLIS?
We collect and use the names and addresses of the buyers and sellers of properties and the price paid. For example, if you are buying a property, you can check that the person selling it is the registered owner.
We are required under the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 2012 to make the information on the Land Register publicly available.
