Our team is the largest, most dedicated of its kind in Scotland with unrivalled experience in relation to SIPP and SSAS real estate.

We complete hundreds of pension real estate transactions each year representing most of the UK’s leading commercial property SIPP and SSAS providers. We are under exclusive appointment to many prominent commercial property providers. We advise on all aspects of real estate transactions for SIPPs, SSASs and other types of pension arrangements and structures using a pension to buy manage and sell commercial property.

Benefits we bring to you 

We’re also experienced in all aspects of the setup of panel processes for pension providers and their development including preparing template documentation, building innovative case management and processing systems and advice on the vehicles involved.

We are active members of the Association of Member Directed Pension Schemes (AMPS) the industry body for key players in this sector.

In recent years the Scottish commercial real estate market has seen many changes. Deals are structured differently and access to funding has changed. Our clients expect us to understand their markets and to offer pragmatic, commercial advice and guidance. We’re also expected to deliver this within tight timeframes and within pre-agreed, fixed fee structures.

We’re specialists with genuine expert knowledge, here to offer valuable advice. Since 2005 we’ve grown to become one of Scotland's leading players, recognised by independent Legal directory Legal 500, who rank us in their top tier for commercial real estate in Scotland.

Our advice is clear and easy to follow. We offer transparent billing, agreeing a fixed fee with our clients, so that they can be reassured that they’ll only pay what they have agreed to pay.
