Feasibility

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 makes all publicly, owned, leased or managed assets available for Asset Transfer Requests.  In preparing the Register of Land, the authority may also wish to ascertain the following:

  • which properties it has title to and which are leased;
  • whether there are any title conditions which will have implications for the transfer, or, for example, restrictions on use, common good status or applicability of the Crichel Down Rules.
  • whether the value (at best consideration) that could be achieved for the property is known.
