Residential Property – Purchase, Sales & Property

We can handle everything to do with buying and selling your property, along with all related property law matters. Our dedicated property team will help you get the best result as you move house and will make sure that everything is done clearly, quickly and with as little hassle as possible.

Whether you’re buying or selling, our team will take the time to really get to know you and your requirements and, because they never take on more than they can manage, they’re always be there for you when you need them.

They’re assisted by a small team of experienced solicitors, and can therefore give you all the information and advice you need.

Our Property Services include:

General advice on all aspects of property sales, purchase and law 

Expert guidance on current property prices and market trends

Advice on buying investment property and student flats

Estate agency and property marketing – from initial valuations through to completion

Advice on costs, including stamp duty and legal fees

Sales and conveyancing

Production of surveys and home reports

We provide a comprehensive estimate before we get started, so there’s no need to worry about unexpected costs. We can also introduce you to other reliable professionals, including search agents, tax advisors, architects, letting agents, mortgage consultants or HMO advisors.

Giving Your Property the Best Exposure in the Market

To get the best results for our clients, we work very closely with the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre (ESPC) – the proven leader in property marketing in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Independent research shows that more buyers start their search through the ESPC than through any other marketing channel. Our partnership with ESPC means that your home will get:

  • Exposure on espc.com that attracts over 1 million visits per month.
  • Access to ESPC’s email matching database of more than 110,000 buyers.
  • A weekly listing in the ESPC Paper (distribution of 30,000 copies).
  • Display in ESPC’s City Centre Showroom at 107 George Street, Edinburgh.
  • Premier properties (priced at £500,000 or over) also benefit from enhanced advertising from ESPC, and automatic inclusion in ESPC’s new flagship monthly Premier Property on-line magazine.

 

Trust us to help…

Whatever property issues you need assistance with, get in touch and we’ll be able to offer you the right advice and support. You can call into our office (and use our car park) or we can visit you – whichever suits you best.
