(This note is not part of the Regulations)
    In consequence of the abolition of domestic rates as from 1st April 1989 it will no longer be possible to calculate home loss payment for the purpose of the Land Compensation (Scotland) Act 1973 by reference to rateable value.
    These Regulations amend section 28 of the Act by substituting, in place of provisions for calculating the amount of home loss payment by reference to rateable value and other factors which may be prescribed by order, a flat rate payment of £1,500. They also make a necessary consequential amendment to the Act and revoke the 2 outstanding orders made under section 28.
