Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome.
Can you tell me a bit about the nature of the contract - what is the subject matter of it?
Hi Thank you.
A transaction or contract for the sale of land must be done in writing.
An email would not be sufficient for this in my opinion. Making the offer by email - clearly implies it is "subject to contract.
I would write back to the lawyer and say that you are not prepared to consider signing these papers unless they provide you with and undertaking to pay your legal costs.
You should then take these papers to your own solicitor and decide whether you want to renogtiatie the price or withdraw from the deal?
Hi, Thank you. There is still the same requirement that the transfer in Land must be done in writing. For your piece of mind I will refer this to one of our Scottish Lawyers for confirmation.
