John King

Land and property search firm Millar & Bryce has appointed John King as principal consultant to provide specialist consultancy support to its clients.

Mr King joins from Registers of Scotland, bringing more than 30 years legal, policy and practical experience, across all aspects of land and property registration.

A graduate of Edinburgh School of Law, he has been instrumental in a number of major policy changes throughout the country, from the execution of the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 2012 to the launch of the Development Plan Approval (DPA) service.

He also led the successful phase one delivery of RoS’s digital transformation programme which included both the digital discharge service and ScotLIS.

In his new role, he will provide counsel and strategic guidance across all aspects of the business, including the resolution of complex title issues (including rectification) through to extension of the company’s current core capabilities to support larger scale voluntary registration projects.

With his deep knowledge and understanding of the sector, he will also be central to the delivery of the company’s CPD programme of activities.

Managing director Richard Hepburn said: “Mr King is held in very high regard by many senior solicitors involved in Scottish land and property affairs, so it is fantastic to be able to welcome someone with his deep knowledge and strong reputation into our business.

We’re very keen to continue to expand our support for clients involved in challenging land registration work, so to have Mr King on board greatly enhances our capabilities in this area.”
