Buying or selling a property is one of life's more stressful events. That is why you need a skilled and experienced legal team to help streamline the process and deliver the best outcome.

With residential property lawyers in our Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Highlands offices, we combine a caring, honest, and hard-working approach with expert legal knowledge. Our considerable experience of the rural and urban Scottish property market will provide peace of mind that your property transaction will be handled by the right people.

From main residences to second homes and buy-to-lets, we help clients buy and sell the full range of residential property in every part of Scotland - no transaction is too big or too small. Many of our clients are based internationally and purchasing their first Scottish property. We are experienced in giving our international clients an all-important introduction to the processes (and peculiarities) of buying a property in Scotland. We can advise on acquiring property in corporate vehicles or family trusts, and, in conjunction with our highly regarded tax colleagues, we can help you to understand the tax implications related to any property transaction.

Our lawyers provide a proactive conveyancing service focused on your needs. You will have a dedicated team working on your transaction and a single point of contact who can always be reached by phone or email. If, for whatever reason they are not, there will always be another member of the team that will be able to help you straight away. We keep you fully informed, so you don’t need to ask for an update. If you are selling, we will work closely with your estate agent to ensure your sale gets the attention it deserves.
