So, you tell us that you want to purchase woodland or meadow and we write a letter to all parties (you, your solicitor and our solicitor). This letter will set out what you are buying, how much it is costing and who the parties are, and the likely timescale.

When a property is marketed in Scotland the seller must provide a Home Report which includes a Single Survey, Mortgage Valuation and Energy Performance Certificate. This is designed to be relied on by a purchaser. You may still wish to have an independent survey or additional specialist reports over the property you are considering buying, depending on the terms of the Home Report. In advance of making an offer, your solicitor will review the Home Report with you and discuss the requirement or benefit of requesting additional reports/surveys.


There are many types of property to buy in the UK; many who move there choose to buy rather than rent. Prices vary greatly across the different countries and regions, but mortgages in the UK are available for those who can afford it. This guide to buying a home in the UK looks at:


There are no legal restrictions on expats buying property in the UK. Foreigners and non-residents can also get a mortgage in the UK. However, those with less than two years of residency in the UK and without a job may face more stringent requirements and a bigger deposit. See this guide to mortgages in the UK for more information. You will need to appoint a UK solicitor or conveyancer to handle the legal paperwork when buying a house in the UK.


You are likely to see this term used regarding buying a house or a piece of land. Many people think heritable property only means property that can be inherited. In fact, heritable property is used to describe all land and buildings, as well as the rights connected to the property.

Wherever in Scotland you are looking to buy property (Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Paisley, Dundee, Dumfries, Perth, Ayrshire, Inverness, Kirkcaldy or elsewhere), our comprehensive and clear legal guide to conveyancing will explain everything you need to know.

Tenants and landlords must also consider their relevant legislative position with regard to their lease and its terms. My new guide provides information for both tenants and landlords with secure (1991 Act) tenancies and fixed duration (2003 Act) tenancies. For example, in 1991 Act tenancies, if there is no written lease or no specific clause within a lease that permits resumption, the landlord has no right to resume land for woodland creation or peatland restoration. Where the landlord has a contractual right of resumption, they may seek to resume the land but that is subject to challenge by the tenant if the resumption is contrary to the good faith of the lease and is of such a scale or nature that it will affect the likelihood that the farm can continue to be tenanted as an agricultural subject.


My guide explains that due to the requirements of agricultural holdings legislation and the conditions attached to the Carbon Codes, tenants cannot generally proceed with peatland restoration or woodland creation without the agreement of the landlord, and that landlords are limited in their ability to resume land without the agreement of the tenant. However, given the potential benefits of peatland restoration and woodland creation schemes to landlord and tenant, there is ample incentive for the parties to get together to explore the possibility of entering into a contractual agreement that enables a project to proceed in a way that benefits both parties.


However, with so much information out there, buying woodland can, at times, literally feel like being lost in a forest. Our guide will walk you through some of the many upsides to buying woodland, as well as offering some tips on how to navigate the process.

1.2 This guide provides information and advice about the statutory procedures that the Scottish Ministers and Transport Scotland propose to follow for the compulsory purchase process. The guide also contains information on compensation where property is acquired and where property is affected either during the construction of the project or once the bridge and roads are operational.


1.4 Though the Scottish Ministers are responsible for promoting the parliamentary Bill and are the acquiring authority, it is Transport Scotland that deals with the day to day matters on behalf of the Scottish Ministers. Any queries, therefore, in respect of the content of this document should be directed to Transport Scotland whose details are in section 6 of this guide.


5.7 If, for instance, you wish to sell your property, but cannot obtain a reasonable price because of construction work you should as a first step approach Transport Scotland and explain your difficulties and ask them to consider buying your property. You cannot however, force Scottish Ministers to make the purchase. If as discussed under paragraph 5.3, there is an interference with your legal rights affecting your property, you might be able to make a claim for "injurious affection compensation" and you may wish to seek legal advice about this.

For most of us, buying a house or a flat is the most important financial transaction that we will ever get involved with. It can be a complicated business but your solicitor can help to guide you through the process. That process includes finding the right property, arranging a survey and the finance, and making a formal offer to buy. Your solicitor is there to help. Throughout the whole conveyancing transaction, your solicitor will explain the procedure and offer you expert advice - below our property lawyers in Glasgow provide a guide through the main steps involved in purchasing property in Scotland.


There are many ways to find a property from newspapers, solicitors/estate agents and property centres to For Sale signs. Your solicitor can also help by providing general information on current property available in the area (see for instance our property lawyers' guide to buying property in Glasgow's West End and Our Property Lawyers' Guide to Finnieston, Glasgow) and can use local knowledge to assist in finding a property to suit you.


As well as the purchase price, there are other costs involved in buying a property that you must consider, such as Stamp Duty Land Tax. The rates and thresholds for Stamp Duty are the same in Scotland as in England, although given that the average house price is lower in Scotland than in many parts of England there are many properties which fall below the 125,000.00 threshold for Stamp Duty. There is also a fee charged by the Registers of Scotland who are responsible for maintaining all the property records in Scotland and where your ownership of your new property is formally recorded. Your solicitor will make sure that there is nothing to prevent the transaction proceeding and then make the arrangements so that all the funds are collected and paid accordingly.


When buying a house in England, Northern Ireland, or Wales, the course of the purchase proceeds as mentioned above and the solicitor can be hired upon the settlement of the offer. Hence, the offer does not legally bind either party before the contracts are eventually exchanged. However, in Scotland, the presence of a solicitor is required to mediate between both parties regarding the offer.

There is no relief on properties over 625,000 or on buy-to-let properties. You are eligible if you and anyone else you are buying with are first-time buyers.
