Succession

There are two forms of succession:

  • Testate Succession is the term used when a crofter makes a Will and names the person(s) they wish to leave the tenancy of the croft and/or grazing shares to. The person(s) nominated by the crofter is called the    ‘legatee(s)’ and they are said to have been ‘bequeathed’ the tenancy of the croft.
  • Intestate succession is the term that describes succession to the deceased’s estate in the absence of a Will or a Will that cannot be given effect to. This is a complicated area of law and you should seek independent legal advice from a solicitor in cases of intestate succession. 

 

Please ensure you submit your Registers of Scotland (RoS) Registration Application form along with your application, if required.

High Volumes of Applications

We currently have a 4 week backlog of applications/enquiries, this is due partly to the high volume of correspondence received and some temporary staffing issues. As a result there will be a delay in acknowledging receipt of your application/answering your enquiry. Be assured that you will hear from us in due course and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

If you have sent us an enquiry, have you checked our website or ROC Online to see if the answer is there?
