The Scottish Law Commission estimate that under 10% of all feuduties which were exigible prior to the 1974 Act are still extant and payable. It is, however, impossible to estimate the total annual value of the feuduties still exigible or the cost of collection. It would be a massive and costly undertaking to attempt to identify those properties throughout Scotland whose feuduties had not been redeemed.
