assignation of writs
assignation of writstransfer of the deeds. As a matter of statutory implication in Scottish conveyancing, the person obtaining land under a disposition or original grant is assigned the writs, the purpose being to fortify his EX FACIE valid title if challenged, a purpose which became less important once extracts photocopied from the record were held to be as good as originals and even less so as land registration has become effective.
