Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
From what you say a starting point would be to establish in whose name the house is. If you give me the address I can do that for you.
As advised before we can advise fully you will need to find out who owns the house at present. Happy to help further with more information.
I’m afraid neither of these properties are on the Land Register of `Scotland which means they are on the older Sasine Register. You will need to get in touch with Millar & Bryce who specialise in searching the registers and they will be able to do an ownership search for you, usually costing about £50 per property search. They can be contacted via their website or on 0131(###) ###-####
