(Scots Law) Identify and discuss the land, property law issues arising in the following scenario

COMPLIANCE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS FORMS AN ELEMENT IN THIS ASSESSMENT.
Identify and discuss the land, Scots property law issues arising in the following scenario.
Your submission should not exceed 2,500 words (this is an absolute maximum). A bibliography is not required.
Footnoting is not required, but authority must be cited in the body of the text in bracketed form). Authority does
not have to conform to Harvard/OSCOLA &c and may be in abbreviated form. Cited authority will form part of
the word-count limit – you should cite lots but keep the citations short (e.g. “LR(S)A2003 s.6” is two words yet
is perfectly recognisably section 6 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, whereas cited fully it is seven
words. “Brown” tells me that you are citing Brown v Lee Construction. Textbooks may be cited by using an
author surname plus edition and page number and other sources should get cited in some reasonably similar
manner.
Write concisely. There’s no need to rehash the facts – they’re in the scenario. Identify the issues and deal with
them without racking up the word count. This assessment is about identifying legal issues and problem solving,
not about eloquent composition.
Your answer should be presented as follows (note that these heading words are not subject to word-counting).
The completed submission should be in Word format – submission in other formats will not count as formal
submission:

Issue (B) [Title]

And so on…
