Conveyancing Practice in Scotland is the only practical guide to managing conveyancing transactions in Scotland. The Ninth Edition of this highly regarded text has been updated to cover the many changes to property law and conveyancing practice driven by the Scottish Parliament in recent years.

Encompassing both commercial and residential conveyancing, this text covers not just the property law aspects but also the practical and ethical considerations of acting in a conveyancing transaction, such as anti-money laundering procedures and conflicts of interest. Standard missive clauses are examined in detail with reference to their application in practice.

The new edition covers:

- Transformation of the land registration process – Digital Submission Service and Register Land and Property
- The Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land
- Practice in electronic signing, and electronic registration
- The effect on practice of the Register of Overseas Entities
- Ongoing Land Reform
- Proposals for reform of Tenement Law
- Proposals for reform of heritable securities;
- Updates on case law and legislation
