Frequently Asked Questions

How does Scottish and English Law differ with regard to the purchase of woodland?

When offering to purchase property in England and Wales it is usual to offer "subject to contract" and the offer is not binding until there has been an exchange of contracts.

In Scotland it is usual to submit an offer that includes your terms of the contract.  This is usually adjusted in a series of communications between the solicitors to reach a conclusion of missives.  However, your written offer may be accepted without adjustment.  It is practice in Scotland that solicitors submit offers on behalf of clients.

It is important to appoint a solicitor who can act in the relevant country.
