Updating an RCI entry

This article will be updated. Full guidance will be made available in future.

This article will explain how to update an entry published in the Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land (RCI).

You can only update an RCI entry that has been published in the register. It is not possible to update a submission that has been made to RCI within the 30 day period before publication.

When does an RCI entry need to be updated?

RCI is an events driven register. When an event happens which requires a change to the information which is held in the register, it must be updated to reflect that change.

The RCI entry must be updated when:

  • the associate is no longer an associate of the recorded person
  • the recorded person no longer owns or tenants the land and has therefore ceased to be a recorded person
  • if any of the information supplied by the recorded person for the RCI entry has changed

In these circumstances, it is the duty of the recorded person to update the RCI entry.

The recorded person must update the register within 60 days of the event or, where the associate has notified the recorded person of the event, as soon as practicable after receipt of that notification.

More information on the duties within RCI can be found in the duties article.

Other events that require an update to the RCI entry

If the recorded person is an individual who is now deceased

The duty to update the RCI entry falls upon the executor of the recorded person. The update must be made as soon as reasonably practicable.

More information on the role of executors can be found in the about executries article.

If the recorded person is an entity that has now been wound up or dissolved

The duty to update the RCI falls upon the person responsible for dealing with the assets and liabilities of the entity. The update must be made as soon as reasonably practicable.

More information on duties in the event of winding up or dissolution can be found in the duties article.

If an associate has a security declaration in effect and it is no longer valid or they cease to have the evidence

The associate is under a duty to update an entry in the RCI to revoke their security declaration. The update must be made as soon as reasonably practicable.
