Shooting Rights and Deer Forests information forms

Work is currently being carried out to ensure that Assessors have the remainder of shooting rights and deer forests valued. Land Managers and their agents should look out for any information requests from Assessors and ensure they are completed and returned.

Scottish Rating Surveyors Forum

A new forum is being established for rating surveyors practising in Scotland to meet with representatives of the Scottish Assessors’ Association and other stakeholders such as the Scottish Government. The first meeting of this new forum will take place in the Scottish Government offices at Victoria Quay in Leith at 14:00hrs on 29 January 2018. Surveyors who wish to attend should forward their details to the Secretary of the SAA, Gary Bennett (gary.bennett@lanarkshire-vjb.gov.uk), prior to 22 January. An agenda will be circulated in advance and minutes of the meeting will be published on this website.

Barclay Review Action Plan

The Barclay Review Group published its recommendations to improve and reform the rating system in Scotland on 22 August 2017. The SAA has now published its Action Plan that relates directly to the Review Group’s recommendation 12. Apart from this Action Plan, Assessors recognise that the Review Group’s recommendations accepted by the Scottish Government extend beyond the issues covered by this plan. The SAA will work with stakeholders to bring about improvements to the rating system that these recommendations seek to achieve.

Shooting Rights and Deer Forests rateable values available this week

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 removed the exemption that had applied to shooting rights and deer forests from 1 April 2017. Assessors undertook to ensure that the bulk of rateable values for shooting rights and deer forests were completed by the end of September 2017. Valuation notices are being issued during the week beginning 25 September along with an information leaflet.
