Croft Registration now Compulsory

As from today a croft must be registered in the new Crofting Register if certain trigger events occur. For the past year registration has been voluntary but only a very small number of crofts have been registered in that time. News of the first voluntary croft registration was covered on this blog.

The triggers, along with a note of who is responsible for making the registration application and when to submit it, are set out in a handy table (which summarises the provisions of the Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act 2010) produced by Registers of Scotland and the Crofting Commission: Triggers for Croft RegistrationTriggers for Croft Registration

You can download the table as a PDF: Trigger Events for Croft Registration

Thoughts on the Crofting Register and its limitations and the potential problems associated with it will feature in future posts on the Crofting Law Blog.
