Be prepared for property law changes
Recent major changes in the Scottish Land Register System together with commencement of the new Land and Buildings Transfer Tax from 1st April make it more essential than ever for buyers and sellers of property to seek advice from an experienced property solicitor. With six solicitors and experienced support staff working daily in all aspects of the property sector, Frazer Coogans are well placed to handle any transaction. Norman Geddes and Peter McNamara bring expertise to the Agricultural and Commercial Property sectors. Carly Brodie and Jacqueline Malcolm specialise in Residential Conveyancing. Working together with drive and initiative they have helped place Frazer Coogans in the forefront of property conveyancing in Scotland. Recent figures issued by the Land Register of Scotland confirm Frazer Coogans to be the leading firm of solicitors in South West Scotland by number of properties registered last year.
Frazer Coogans regularly deal with sale and purchase of farm and country properties of all types, commercial property including leases, and residential conveyancing. In the agricultural sector they regularly deal with tenancy issues, wind turbine and other agreements and are frequently asked to advise on issues arising in farm partnerships. They are happy to provide an initial discussion without commitment or charge and regularly make farm visits.
