Patzel Posted February 16, 2011 Report Share Posted February 16, 2011 which estate agent/solicitor can anybody recommend? I am looking for a reliable solicitor who can give good advice and can be trusted. Because I am not so familiar with the present Scottish laws and many things would have to be arranged from a distance it's important that the solicitor is abolutely trustworthy. Is it necessary to have a Shetland solicitor? Any disadvantages if I'd rather deal with my former solicitor who is on the Western Isles? How about the costs? Does it depend on what is to do or only on the value/price of the property? What legal fees are usually involved?Does anybody know whether it's possible to make an offer for a house with a fixed price which includes all fees and all costs (seller and buyer) to avoid unpleasant surprises afterwards? How complicated is it if the sale of the property includes a tenanted croft (apart from getting the consent of the Crofters Commission)? If there were the chance of buying the croft directly of the landlord and the property itself of the buyer does this complicate things even more?Reason is that I am not so happy about buying tenancy rights. I'd rather own a croft than only rent it. Has anybody made any personal experiences? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
