Asked by: Gordon Lindhurst, Lothian, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 18 May 2020
To ask the Scottish Government what progress is being made on digitising the land register that is held by the Registers of Scotland.
Current status: Answered by Ben Macpherson on 2 June 2020
This is a question for the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland. She advises me that as of the end of April 2020 RoS have registered 39.3% of land mass on the digital land register which equates to an estimated 68.4% of titles.
The published Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is to achieve 50% of land mass on the register by end March 2021 and RoS considered they were on target to achieve that pre Covid 19. Work is ongoing to fully assess the impact on Covid 19 on all of RoS strategic objectives including land register completion.
