Scottish housing market strengthened by Independence | Business Scotland |

Having been a domestic conveyancing solicitor for 35 years I have witnessed the booms and busts of the domestic property market throughout Scotland; the scramble for limited mortgage funds of the late 1970s to the over abundance of paper money in the 2000s; from mortgage interests rates of over 17% to today’s artificially low ones; from no separate charge to arrange mortgages to the grotesque mortgage arrangement fees endemic in the current system.
