Registers of Scotland (RoS) keeps public registers of land, property, and other legal documents in Scotland. Scotland’s land register is the oldest in the world and RoS is the definitive source of information on all property transactions in Scotland. It provides a publicly accessible register of property rights, underpinned by state guarantee. With a land register, you can prove ownership of what you are selling or borrowing against. This has vital benefits for the citizen and the economy.
