  • LBTT (Isobel d'Inverno)
     
  • Acting for the landlord when dealing with insolvent tenants and insolvency practitioners (Caroline Summers)
    Most landlords realise when they hear the words “tenant insolvency” that it is not good news and they are going to lose money in one way or another out of it, but it is important to give them a full picture of what they are facing and to help them minimise the losses they might be facing where possible. This talk is not aimed at insolvency specialists. It is aimed at commercial property lawyers who find themselves suddenly having to become experts in insolvency law and in dealing with insolvency practitioners when their client is faced with an insolvent tenant. The talk will cover the four main categories of insolvency (administration, receivership, liquidation and CVAs) with particular focus on administration and CVAs examining the law in general and some recent trends and case law before looking at potential remedies or options open to the landlord in certain circumstances.
     
  • Registers of Scotland – completing the Land Register through automatic plot registration and KIR (Harry Murray) 
    Registers of Scotland (RoS) is responsible for compiling and maintaining 20 public registers relating to land, property and other legal documents in Scotland. It is an organisation with centuries of history, but a 21st century mandate to be an effective digital first asset for Scotland. As part of this changes are being undertaken in the overall Registration processes and new digital products and services are being introduced, such as ScotLIS (Scotland’s Land Information Service).
    In this session you’ll get an update on RoS, and hear in more detail about our automatic plot registration and the progress of the Keeper Induced Registration (KIR).
