Scottish Land Court

The Scottish Land Court is based in Edinburgh and deals with disputes relating to agricultural tenancies between landlords and tenants. The court also deals with matters related to crofts.

The Scottish Land Court was established under section 3 of the Small Landholders (Scotland) Act 1911 as amended by the Scottish Land Court Act 1993.

The court:
* receives applications from a party (or parties) involved in a dispute
* issues orders guiding and controlling the proceedings
* conducts hearings to take evidence and hear the arguments of the parties to the dispute
* gives a written decision on the case
* reports decisions in the Scottish Land Court Reports and other publications.
