Buying a new property is an exciting time, and is often one of the largest personal transactions of our lives. That's why we believe our service offering is ideal for people buying their homes, and in particular first-time buyers, for whom this can be a daunting experience. We take you smoothly through the process from start to finish, informing you of your options the whole way.

Buying a Property

When you see a property you are interested in, get in touch with us straight away. Our solicitors will get in touch with the estate agent to note interest on your behalf and check if there is a closing date on the property, and if there are other interested parties. The property will be advertised at an 'offers over' price. This in an indication of the price bracket your purchaser wants; it is not necessary to pay the asking price, however.  Once you have finance in place for your purchase, we’ll submit the offer on your behalf.  If this is rejected, the offer can be increased if you wish.  Once your offer has been accepted, we enter into the missives stage, where the solicitors negotiate the sale of the house. It is our job to ensure the title deeds, and other documentation is in order. Once the missives have been signed (a series of official letters) we register the property in your name on the Land Register and pay any stamp duty. On an agreed date, you will receive the keys to your new property. Speak to one of our team if you are thinking of buying a property. With our expertise and local market knowledge, we can guide you smoothly through the entire process. Our one-stop shop for house buyers takes the stress out of buying a home – and gives you peace of mind – get in touch with our friendly team today. 

Selling your Home

In Scotland, prospective sellers must instruct a home report on their property before marketing it. Our solicitors will take care of this on your behalf. We will advise you on incoming offers on your property, and with our in-depth local market knowledge, we can advise if the price and terms of the offer are reasonable.  Where you are happy with an offer, we will negotiate the terms with the purchaser's solicitor.  Once these terms are agreed, the missives can be formally signed, and the sale is formed. Get in touch with one of our team today to see how we can help.
