Asset transfer means transferring ownership, leasing, or granting rights to manage or occupy eligible land or buildings to community bodies.

Community bodies can make an Asset Transfer Request for assets owned or leased by us, or that we manage on behalf of Scottish Ministers. These are listed in our Register of Assets.

This document outlines our commitment to facilitating Asset Transfer Requests where they benefit communities and secure positive outcomes for the historic environment.
