Change of ownership of a croft or part of a croft

Anyone who buys croft land must notify the Commission.  This applies whether it is part or the whole of the croft that is purchased and includes tenants who purchase all or part of their croft. 

If different areas of the same croft are bought by different people the new owner(s) of each part must complete a Notification Form and send it to us.  You should also inform us of any change to your contact details.


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