About 84% of Scotland landmass is for the first time available in THE SERVICE (PALS) published list

ROS, The Register of Sasines  covers 29% of the landmass and a greater area is substantive but not yet in form of a single map of Scotland.7 to 10 years(from 2018) according to the ROS Website, is the time before The Land Register is fully functional.

Therefore THE SERVICE (PALS)  is the first published ,single 'map' of all Scotland and in Cadastral Map form

(corporate version  holding title sheets, application records,archive records, advance notices,lease certificates- as appropriate and where applicable).

No other map has search,index, multidimensional information of steading shared tenancies using our unique

horizontal and vertical hierarchical structures -in progress at this time. The Cadastral map is not the Ordnance Survey base map and exists outside this.

 The Systems Solutions Consultancy Limited has the published copyright for the historical Title boundaries

shown and the unique historical List, central to this product, of landmass plot names, for about 84% of Scotland's landmass.

The contribution of The Scottish Law Commission to Land Registration in Scotland is gratefully acknowledged.
