Amendment 136 removes the seven-year time limit for former crofters and cottars who have acquired the site of their dwelling-house to apply for grant assistance under section 45(1) of the 1993 act towards the erection, improvement or rebuilding of dwelling-houses, so that they are treated equally to tenant crofters. Paragraph 3(17A) of schedule 2 will also allow owner-occupier crofters to apply for similar grant assistance, so crofting grants will apply equally to all applicants.
