Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land: Are you Affected?

August 17, 2022

Registers of Scotland have introduced a new Land Register – the Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land (or the “RCI”) – which went live on the 1 April 2022. This is an additional register, sitting alongside the Register of Sasines (which is being phased out) and the Land Register of Scotland, with the aim of identifying those individuals, who cannot be identified through the existing land registers, who have a “significant influence or control” over the named owner or long tenant (20+ years) of the land or property in question. The aim of the RCI is to improve transparency in who actually owns or tenants Scottish land.
