Lows have a dedicated property team based at our Property Shop at 5 Broad Street, Kirkwall.
Our core business is in residential property sales, but we also assist clients in buying and selling commercial and agricultural property, and we have extensive experience in leasing.
When you buy a house, you may have to pay Land and Buildings Transaction Tax. This applies to all transactions where the value of the property is £40,000 or more. We will advise you in detail, but please bear this in mind as it can represent a substantial extra cost, particularly if you already own a house and are buying an additional property to rent out.
In Scotland Solicitors have long been recognised as the leading profession in property. Lows are the recognised market leaders in Orkney property, consistently marketing more properties in Orkney than any competitor.
We believe in an innovative and client driven approach to property sales and marketing. We were one of the first law practices in Scotland to have a dedicated property website, and sellers and purchasers can both now benefit from access to Rightmove, the UK’s No. 1 property portal.
On our website you can browse details of all properties for sale, download particulars and request a viewing. If you are thinking of moving to Orkney and need information about our community and its schools, medical resources and transportation links then our highly knowledgeable team will be happy to help.
