Event description

Description

For the twenty-seventh successive year, Professor Kenneth Reid and Professor George Gretton will be giving a comprehensive and indispensable review of the cases and statutory developments during the past 12 months which affect conveyancing law and practice.

In 2017 it was decided by the courts that, contrary to normal conveyancing practice, an assignation of a standard security must stipulate the amount outstanding as at the date of the assignation. There was significant authority from both the Court of Session and the Sheriff Appeal Court on the interpretation of servitudes. Among the numerous cases about leases were decisions on the constitution of leases, tacit relocation, the grant of a lease by a person who is insolvent, liability for latent defects, waiver of the right to seek rent review, dilapidations, and the distinction between a lease and a licence. The difficult relationship between insolvency and special destinations was explored. Other matters to attract the attention of the courts included missives of sale, rectification of inaccurate boundaries on the Land Register, positive prescription, neighbour wars, tenements, wayleaves, and statutory notices. These and other developments in the law will be discussed and evaluated during the seminar. There ​will be an opportunity for questions. A substantial set of materials will give the full text of the talks, and will also list and summarise all cases and statutory material from 2017.

As in previous years, each delegate will receive a copy of the revised materials when published in book form by Avizandum Publishing Ltd in spring 2018.
