Property Law

Our property lawyers deal with transactions relating to residential and commercial property.

Known as real estate law, it  covers areas such as conveyancing (buying and selling of property), leasing agreements, property finance, remortgaging, mortgage and lending, landlord and tenant agreements, land and neighbour disputes and social housing issues.

Real Estate Lawyer

Property disputes can be extremely stressful, especially if they concern neighbours. Our property lawyers specialise in helping home owners, landlords and tenants to solve any issues in a stress free manner.

Buying or Selling a Property

Unfortunately the conveyancing process does not always run as smoothly as you would want. There could be problems with the mortgage offer, the legal documents or other paperwork. Maybe even with the Land Registry, or the Deeds. This can be the time you need the help from a property solicitor, one well versed in dealing with any legal matters in a prompt and efficient manner.

We can help sort out many of the issues that sometime plague residential conveyancing,  as well as issues such as:-

  • Possession and rent recovery for assured shorthold and protected rent act tenancies.
  • Disputes over deposits
  • Recovery charges relating to rent and service on long leases
  • Claims about the disrepair of property
  • Dealing with unlawful occupation of property by squatters
  • Planning permission issues
  • Boundary disputes
  • Enfranchisement issues appertaining to landlords and long leaseholders
  • Mortgage disputes
  • Misrepresentation of property

Conveyancing Services

As well as providing a full conveyancing service for anyone buying a property, we are also able to offer abortive insurance to our conveyancing clients. For the last two years this has proved very popular as it protects our clients from paying high abortive fees should any conveyancing transaction fail. Please contact us for details.

  • Border Patrol: Edinburgh’s suburban hedges – in pictures
    During lockdowns, the border hedge gained new purpose, a metaphor for self-isolation and shelter. This series of suburban landscapes began in March 2020 during the permitted daily lockdown excursions in the ‘bungalow belt’ of Edinburgh and has continued.
