Our House Building team has a wealth of experience in this specialist sector and can advise on all stages of development, from pre-planning to plot sales, and everything in between. We know the market and the challenges that developers, social housing providers and others can face in progressing their projects. We understand what is important and, crucially, what isn’t.
We currently hold a double Real Estate Team of the Year title from both the Herald Law Awards of Scotland and the Scottish Legal Awards 2021.
We provide quality advice, promptly, and in a straightforward way. We’ll help you forge the right path to achieve your short and long term goals.
We act for some of Scotland and the UK’s well known residential property developers and also many smaller niche developers and our understanding of the market is second to none. Our lawyers are true specialists and we’re passionate about helping you finalise projects and deals in the most efficient way possible. We also keep a close eye on upcoming regulatory amendments, meaning you’ll always be ahead of the game when it matters.
