Scottish Field - - PROPERTY -

From Carl War­den, Se­nior As­so­ciate at Bell In­gram. Bell In­gram have seen a real in­crease in en­quiries, view­ing re­quests, of­fers and mar­ket ap­praisals over the last month.

The de­sire of pur­chasers and sell­ers to get things mov­ing is win­ning through. The po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion has slightly set­tled for now but LBTT con­tin­ues to play a role in pur­chasers’ de­lib­er­a­tions and of­ten re­flects in ne­go­ti­a­tions.

Pres­sure still needs to be put on the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment to bring LBTT back in line with the rest of the UK to al­low the bot­tle­neck of higher end trans­ac­tions to flow, thereby in­creas­ing LBTT rev­enue and mak­ing the mar­ket per­form more ef­fi­ciently.

Scot­land re­mains in­cred­i­ble value for money and this is ap­par­ent from the level of in­ter­est shown from buy­ers from the UK and in­ter­na­tion­ally.
