Buying A Property In Moray – Help From A Law Society Video

Solicitors’ local knowledge can benefit you when looking for a house – for example, if buying a property in Moray.

Solicitors can also help take the pressure off you, guiding you along the path of the property-purchasing process, from noting an interest in a house, at the start, to getting the keys to your new home and moving in, at the end.

These are themes running through a new Law Society of Scotland video – “7 steps to your new home | Buying a house in Scotland”.

The Law Society have produced this to help you understand the basics of what is, for many of us, the most important financial transaction we ever make.

What does the video cover?

The video divides the process up into the following sections:

  1. Your finances
  2. Finding a property and noting your interest
  3. Home reports and surveys
  4. The offer
  5. Agreeing the contract – or the missives
  6. Documents of ownership
  7. Completing the purchase

You can also download a typewritten transcript of the audio on the video from the Law Society website.

If you are considering buying a house or flat, the best advice is to see your solicitor first.

We are here to help

Our offices are closed but we are still open and here to help.


In accordance with Government guidelines, and to ensure the health and well-being of our
Staff and the wider community, our offices in Elgin and Forres are now closed to the public
until further notice.


However, we are still here to help you. We have a very small, core team remaining at each
office and the bulk of our legal and property teams are working remotely and are available to
assist you by way of telephone, video call or email.


Our main office number (01343 544077) is manned from 9am – 5pm, Monday to Thursday
and 9am – 4pm on Fridays. Please call and you will be passed to the member of our team
dealing with your business. If you are a new client requiring assistance, then you will be
passed to someone who will be able to help.


Those members of our team who are working remotely remain contactable on their direct
dial numbers and email. If the person who was dealing with your business is not currently
working then your call or email is being diverted to the person progressing matters for you.


This is a difficult time for everyone. We want to do all that we can to help you continue with
any ongoing business, or simply help and advise you if you have concerns. These are
extraordinary times and we totally understand that you may have legal questions or
concerns. Please feel free to call for a chat and we will do all we can to assist.


If we all take good care of ourselves, our families, our friends and our neighbours, we are
sure that together we will come through this difficult time.
