How can we help?
Securing a solid income stream from commercial property investment remains a sound and attractive choice for people and for businesses seeking a balanced portfolio and steady returns over a long period.
Our property investment lawyers take real pride in bringing the legal skills and commercial acumen to deliver this secure income stream to domestic and international investors. We work with our clients to understand and achieve their property investment goals using our in-depth knowledge of the Scottish market, finding creative solutions and always advising on the impact that regulatory change can have on long-term returns.
Our market leading capability means we can deliver legal solutions for investment projects, from offices, industrial, retail and mixed use to renewable energy, student accommodation, hotels and leisure. We always aim to reduce the conveyancing steps required for the lease, landlord and tenant management documents.
Our commercial property finance team has the specialist knowledge to understand the potential and the pitfalls of property development, property finance and investment. This means lenders can count on getting in-depth property law advice and guidance developed over many years. For borrowers, this knowledge and experience combines to ensure a proper allocation of risk and the assurance that funding draw-down conditions can be met and managed to deliver projects on time.
We advise on a range of commercial leasing and title issues, including advice on dilapidations, interpretation of lease terms and remedies. Our property dispute team works with commercial leases and development agreements on a regular basis, working closely with our colleagues in the commercial property team to ensure we understand your business.
If property disputes do arise, we are already familiar with the background and are able to give commercial advice on the options including rural disputes and land disputes. If the courts are the only practical way to resolve the dispute, we will consider with you whether alternative dispute resolution, through mediation or arbitration, may be more appropriate.
Expert navigation of the Scottish planning process at both national and local level is central to achieving your development objective. We don’t just bring in-depth knowledge of the regulatory law and process but also a rigorous approach to local dynamics and how they impact on a project programme.
Across the property development sector, our accredited town planners have delivered winning planning submissions through detailed knowledge backed by advocacy skills. A wealth of experience negotiating and drafting section 75 agreements allows us to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.
