What our clients have to say

We recently moved home within Edinburgh. The transaction process involved two separate property chains. Without Gillian Black’s professionalism, calmness, communication and advice, we doubt the process would have ended successfully. At all times Gillian was responsive, offered clarification and reassurance when appropriate and excellent service in every way. Gillian was a total rock in a difficult process. We would highly recommend Urquharts. We doubt you could better.

AC, Edinburgh

We would highly recommend the service provided by Alison Grandison and the team at Urquharts. We moved to Scotland from England and Urquharts provided expert advice and guidance to navigate through the different legal systems and property buying processes. In particular, the team communicated regularly and proactively with ourselves and with our English solicitor regarding our sale making a highly stressful and complex process as simple as possible.


Exceptional service from start to finish. As first time buyers, we had limited knowledge of the process. Gillian explained everything clearly and responded quickly to any enquiries we had. Time is of the essence when it comes to house buying, especially in such a competitive market as Edinburgh, so this level of communication was invaluable. She was also very thorough, highlighting potential issues through in-depth additional research. Could not recommend Urquharts and their team more. We’ll be using their services again.

BA, Edinburgh

I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank yourself and all of the team at Urquharts. My father passed just two weeks into the pandemic of 2020 and it was such a daunting task to be left with the execution of his will given the circumstances at the time. However, Urquharts were able to help me deal with all eventualities and the same again with the sale of his property. The quality of service and customer care provided has been second to none and all of your staff are a credit to the company.

DP, Edinburgh

Everything seems to be working out beautifully. Your advice all along has been excellent and your expertise has made a potentially difficult situation (selling a house whilst dealing with a medical emergency in my personal life), resolve calmly and with no stress for me. I feel fortunate that it was you who was at the helm and am very grateful.

HG, Ulverston

We initially used Urquharts when buying for our first property together and were impressed early by the diligence and thoughtfulness that went into making sure the sale went well and our interests were looked after. What also sets Gillian and the team apart is the clear and regular communication. We felt very much at ease and taken care of. We’ve since relied on Urquharts for subsequent property sales/purchases as well as wider legal needs, including our wills. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

JM, Edinburgh

We couldn’t have asked for a more professional and supportive team to help with the purchase of our first home than Gillian and her colleagues at Urquharts. Gillian made the whole process incredibly smooth and stress free; she explained what was happening every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and make recommendations. As first-time buyers this was so helpful and reassuring. We would absolutely recommend Urquharts to anyone looking to purchase a property.
