The Title Register contains 4 sections (A, B, C & D) which together include a complete description of the property title owned, that is, sufficient information to identify who owns it, where it is, the extent of land owned, rights that benefit the land and rights that burden it.
Information contained within a Title Register:
The introduction contains a note of the Sasine Search Sheet Number, a unique reference which refers to digital images of the pre-registration Title details.
A: Property Section
The A: Property Section contains: the Title Number (a unique number that all registered properties are allocated), the date it first became registered, the Interest (Tenure), e.g. Proprietor, Tenant, Feu, the subjects (address or description of the Property), and Rights benefitting the land. There will be a reference to the deed creating any such rights and a note as to which entry it appears within, in the D: Burdens section.
B: Proprietorship Section
The B: Proprietorship Section contains: the date the property was purchased (date of entry), the purchase price, the name & address of the property owner (the Proprietor), any restrictions on powers of disposition (selling or mortgaging), and whether any matrimonial occupancy rights have been registered.
C: Charges Section
The C: Charges Section: any rights that burden the land such as Restrictive Covenants and personal covenants, charges and mortgages with the names of the chargees and mortgagees.
D: Burdens Section
The D: Burdens Section starts with a preamble, which summarises the detailed burdens that follow. The Burdens mostly consist of dispositions (usually sales or mortgages) and contain considerable detail of covenants, rights of way, rights of access, etc.
The Title Plan shows a detailed outline of the property in relation to its surroundings, and often (especially with larger properties) has detailed and coloured markings referred to in the Title Register that illustrate rights of way, rights of access, watercourses and sections of land affected by easements and covenants. The general boundaries of the property itself are edged in red, but they do not show the property boundaries with any degree of precision and are intended as a guide only (albeit a good one).
The Title Register (Title Sheet) is one of the 2 main documents of title. It contains a description of the property, its tenure, the name and address of the owners, purchase price, name & address of mortgagee and details of other burdens, charges, covenants, rights, cautions, notices and restrictions.
The Title Plan is the other main document of title. It shows a detailed outline of the property in relation to its surroundings, and often (especially with larger properties) has detailed and coloured markings referred to in the Title Register that illustrate rights of way, rights of access, watercourses and sections of land affected by rights and covenants. The general boundaries of the property itself are edged in red.
Where the property is not registered we instead obtain a copy of the Sasine Register and Cadastral Map, which provide similar detail to the above.
