Buying a property

Property purchase

At Morton Fraser, our team are here to work on your behalf whether you’re in the market to move home or are thinking of either selling your investment or developing your portfolio.

We’ll guide you from initial stages right through to closing the deal. Being part of a law firm, we have all the conveyancing expertise in-house.

We will advise on the purchase of property throughout Scotland.

  • We will advise you on the price of property and what we believe you should offer in order to be successful, but also whether we think you are paying over the odds.
  • We will advise you on the seller's Home Report, and what the various parts mean.  Where there might be need for improvement work, we can source professional reports on the likely cost of that work.
  • If your mortgage company won't accept the seller's Home Report, we will arrange for an independent survey to be carried out.
  • We will help you with the whole process, from your initial enquiry, through to the point you have bought your new property.

Our team are available from 8am to 5pm on Monday to Friday.  You can contact the team during these times on 0131 247 1010.

Family man, that’s me.  It’s all I’ve ever wanted really. And now we have number three on the way. A growing family and a shrinking house? Yikes. Do we carry on living in happy chaos? Or explore other options?

Benefits we bring

We provide full advice.  We know the property market, so if all you want is for a solicitor to make an offer for you at the price you think is right, then we are probably not the right team for you.  Our expertise helps clients to get a better price, and better value for their money.

We will provide you with a service.  Buying a property can be stressful.  Our expertise can help to reduce that stress for you.

We help with sales and purchases, and work with you to achieve the best move.

Our approach to fees

We understand the importance of fee clarity and value for money.

We can offer to do your work for a fixed fee or for a fixed percentage fee based on the ultimate sale or purchase price.  We will always provide a clear outline of the work we are doing, and clarity around the level of service we provide.
