QLTR Overview

The Office of Queen’s and Lord Treasurer’s Remembrancer (QLTR) is held by the Crown Agent. The current QLTR is David Harvie. The QLTR is supported by the QLTR office which consists of 2 Solicitors and 2 Administrative staff.

The approach of the QLTR to particular types of assets falling to the Crown as bona vacantia and ultimus haeres is set out in the QLTR's Policies.  The QLTR is also the Crown representative ultimately responsible for all decisions over the claiming, valuation and allocation of portable antiquities found in Scotland. The QLTR is supported by the Treasure Trove Unit and the QLTR Office.

This site also hosts information about the National Ultimus Haeres Unit, Hamilton (NUHU).
