About us

In Scots law, the Crown can claim ownerless property. The Crown's representative in Scotland is the Queen’s and Lord Treasurer’s Remembrancer (QLTR). Where we deal with such property, its realised value is paid by the QLTR into the Scottish Consolidated Fund.

The QLTR's Policies set out the Office's approach to dealing with particular types of property and assets.  See also our sections on ownerless property, unclaimed personal estates and the claiming, valuation and allocation of portable antiquities found in Scotland. This site also hosts information about the National Ultimus Haeres Unit, Hamilton (NUHU).

The current QLTR is David Harvie, the Crown Agent. The QLTR is supported by the QLTR office which consists of 3 Solicitors and 3 Administrative staff.
