If you're a first-time buyer, a long-term homeowner looking to move, or an investor seeking to expand your portfolio, our team of property and conveyancing solicitors can support you.

Buying or selling a property is always a big decision, and often involves a large financial commitment. Before making such a commitment, you should consider all of the options available. The property market can be challenging, with shifting conditions, fierce competition between buyers and sellers, and complex compliance requirements.  
That’s where we can help.  
Applying a clear, practical approach, our property solicitors can support you throughout the sale process. We are well-versed in Scotland’s property landscape, and our services can be tailored to your unique situation. We’ll work closely with you to identify the most practical legal solutions, always aiming for the most cost-effective outcome. 

Buying a property in Scotland

The majority of Scottish properties are sold via the ‘blind bidding system’ (sellers ask for offers over or around a minimum price). This can make budgeting tricky. When you add having to deal with managing home office surveys, having a good legal team is invaluable. Our property solicitors can support you through every stage of the buying process.

We can: 

  • Advise on property trends in your area  
  • Requesting and assessing the Home Report, 
  • Arranging surveys 
  • Noting interest through to submitting the formal offer,  
  • Negotiating and concluding the missives
