Old deeds are referred to in the Sasine Register Search Sheet or in the Title Register by dates and parties. These deeds are not held by Registers of Scotland but can normally be obtained from the National Archives of Scotland.
The search includes one copy deed: to identify it you need to know at least the date of it and the name of a party involved.
If you do not know the date of the deed you must order a Sasine Register search first to establish what deeds have been recorded and when.
These old documents contain particulars of transfers, charges or other transactions relating to a property. If the Sasine Register entry refers to a PLAN, it means that the submitted deed contains a plan of the property. This can often be very useful as unregistered properties do not have title plans.
