Boundaries

Scotland's Land Registers are made up of Title Registers, Title Plans and Sasine Records. The Title Registers also contain a detailed schedule of Burdens affecting the property and a precis of the deeds creating them. The Burdens usually contain a very detailed description of the property boundaries and as such are the most important documents to consider when dealing with a boundary dispute.

The Title Plans are based on the ordinance survey maps and are usually based on a scale of 1/1250 in built up areas and 1/2500 in the countryside. Each Title Plan adequately identifies the property and provides a reasonably accurate guide (but not an exact guide) as to the boundary positions, being marked by red edging.

To glean information about property boundaries it is essential to look through the Title Register for each adjoining property, including the schedule of burdens, and to look at the Title Plan.

A detailed study of the Title documents must always be the first step to be taken to resolve a boundary dispute. Usually the information provided is enough to clarify the boundary positions and ownership, especially when it is known what to look for.

We have provided a rough guide below to show what information is available. All of the documents mentioned are provided by us in our Boundary Searches, and we provide them for each of the properties.

Rights of Way Search

This search is the recommended search for anyone requiring information relating to either public or private rights of way affecting their property or adjoining property. Public rights of way are detailed in the information guide accompanying the search, and private rights of way (servitudes) are detailed in the Land Registry documents affecting the properties concerned. The property over which a right of way is exercised is known as the servient tenement and the property having the benefit of that right is known as the dominant tenement.

Guidelines for documents included with our Boundary Search

Title Register (for each property)
This will provide a physical description of the property address. It may be no more than an address, but where the property includes land it may also describe detail of where the land is situated, e.g. land lying to the south of Berwick Road and to the east of Village Road and consisting of 5 acres. There will usually be references to dispositions and Burdens that appear in the D: Burdens Section, where more details can be obtained. Rights of Way and Covenants may provide clues as to a boundary position.

2 Title Plan (for each property)
This comprises an outline of the property curtilage, shown by red edging. It is scaled to 1/1250 in urban areas and 1/2500 in rural areas. Property boundaries are general boundaries only, i.e. not precisely defined.

3 Burdens (for each property)
The Burdens form the D: Section of the Title Register. They contain considerable details of covenants and rights affecting the property and deal with boundary descriptions and mainteance in minute detail.

4 All available Sasine Registers (for each property)
The sasine register is the record of scanned title records that once made up the complete title records for the property. It is now redundant so far as registered properties are concerned but may provide a useful additional source of information for boundary disputes.

5 A seven page detailed Summary of Legal Presumptions
Legal presumptions are those presumptions made by the general law and will apply where there is no indication to the contrary. Such an indication would be provided in the documents referred to above, which is one of the reasons it is so important to obtain and study them. A legal presumption is easily rebutted if a document shows a contrary intention.
