Buying and Selling

It can be a pressured process buying a home - from mortgage issues and finding the right place, all the way through to completing missives.  And selling a property can be equally stressful, making sure the marketing is right and often under time pressures. 

How can Thorntons help?

You can rely on our highly experienced and helpful property teams to guide you through the whole legal process for your house buying and selling. With our offices across Tayside, Perthshire, Angus and Fife, we have in-depth knowledge of the local property markets and are on hand to help you all the way.

If you are looking to buy, we can help you from the start with mortgage advice and property search information. Then when you have found your dream home we can take care of all the necessary legal procedures involved, from making an offer right through to completing missives and collecting the keys.

And our teams have in-depth knowledge of local property developments if you are interested in buying a new build. We can give you specialist advice on buying a new build property either off plan or from a developing site.

If you are looking to sell, we know the process from start to finish – and the pitfalls to avoid. Our dedicated property teams work closely with our estate agency operation to make the process as stress free and seamless as we can for you. And Thorntons are market leaders for selling property in the area with highly developed systems and procedures to help make everything happen as swiftly as possible.

Our experienced legal team can also help you if you want to buy or sell property at auction. If you're buying, we can advise you before you bid and deal with the legal aspects of completing your purchase if your bid is successful. And if you are selling at auction, we can help you prepare the auction contract and legal pack, and handle the completion of your sale.

You might be happy where you are but not with your mortgage. If so, we can help you explore your remortgage options with a cost-effective remortgage service, tailored to your particular requirements.

With our personal service, we will keep you regularly updated and informed, supporting you all the way through your property plans.
