Buying a Holiday Home in the UK

If you are considering buying a holiday home, you may not feel sure where to start. Our solicitors can provide you with expert advice on pursuing a holiday property in the UK.

Holiday Home Conveyancing Solicitors in Scotland

Our experienced property conveyancing solicitors can help you if you wish to purchase a holiday property, whether for commercial letting or as a second home.

The legal procedures for buying a second property are the same as with other residential conveyancing procedures. The process of conveyancing will oversee the legal elements of the sale including the transfer of money, searches with the local authority and the transfer of deeds.

Options for financing the purchase of your holiday home usually differ from those for buying a main home. Here, borrowing may cost less than a standard mortgage, however it may be more difficult to obtain if you need to borrow a large amount or if the property is on one of the Scottish Islands.

Another option is re-financing the main home in order to buy the second, which is often possible if there is only a small mortgage on that property. However, this is a rather specialised field of borrowing. Those who are considering this option should take advice from a specialist financial adviser, mortgage broker or a mortgage lender.
