Thank you for the response. One additional question. If the property is used for business purposes by the sole trader does that change the status of the property or does that status arise from being a sole trader?
Sorry maybe being silly here but as I understand the postion: if the propertly is owned by a company then it would be part of the company's assests and the shares in the company are part of the movable estate. A sole trader may use a trading name and the title to the property is in the trading name. It is this situation, a property title being in the trading name of a sole trader, that is of interest. Is it a business asset and so movable estate or, as a sole trader owns everything to do with a business, it becomes heritable estate under Scots law?
Thanks that clarifies it
