So, what’s this guide about?

The process of selling property in Scotland has seen a lot of changes in the last few years. The introduction of Home Reports in 2008 was a game-changer.

So, if you’re asking yourself, “How do I go about selling my house?” or “Where do I start?”, here is the very best place! We’ll set out in plain English the various steps to selling your property so that you can make informed decisions about how you want to go about it.

Can I not just sell direct to a buyer?

Sadly, no. To transfer ownership of a property from one person to another in Scotland, you have to engage the services of a solicitor.

Having said that, if you have already know the buyer of your property, you can both go directly to a solicitor to handle the transfer process without the need to market your property, in other words without engaging the services of an estate agent or solicitor/estate agent.

Is this a good time to sell?

This is always the million dollar question! If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that if you never know what lies around the corner. If you are selling to buy somewhere else, whatever is happening in the market that affects your house also affects the one you are buying. There is a lot of truth in the advice that there is no time like the present!
