Execution Possession. The Supreme Court held that (i) in a case falling within the scope of s 19(1) of the Conveyancing and Feudal Reform (Scotland) Act 1970, the creditor had to serve a calling-up notice; and certificate of default could not constitute a 'formal requisition' for the purposes of s 5 of the Heritable Securities (Scotland) Act 1894, since that requistion had to be made before any proceedings were begun.
