Property and Conveyancing
When you are buying or selling property, it pays to seek sound advice from property professionals.
The solicitors and staff at FDL are skilled, experienced, proven conveyancing practioners and negotiators. Our sole aim is to achieve the best possible deal for our clients. As your solicitors and estate agents we will guide you all the way through the Scottish conveyancing process and advise on how best to either market your property or secure a new home, using the latest innovative IT technology combined with the marketing experience that we have acquired over more than two decades in legal practice.
When you employ FDL as your solicitors, our service covers every aspect of your property transaction, from conveyancing and estate agency through to instruction of the surveyors and helping you to find a mortgage advisor to provide you with a deal that will be tailored to your circumstances
We have years of experience in acting for both landlord and tenant in a commercial lease transaction. No commercial lease is too big or to small for the experts at FDL.
We can assist you in drafting, negotiating and concluding your lease and also in the years following this with your rent reviews, variations to your lease, assignations of your lease and licence for works agreements.
Wills and Estates
We are experienced in the drawing of wills and administration of executry work.
Experience has taught us that it is vital for everyone to consider having a will drawn. A will must be tailored to your individual needs and circumstances, reflecting your wishes and making sensible, tax efficient provisions for your loved ones when you are no longer there.
And when it comes to winding up estates, we are used to dealing with people in times of need. Grieving relatives need sympathy and sensitive, professional care.
If you wish to have a will prepared, you can provide us with your rough instructions on-line using our e-mail form on our enquiries page. We will then contact you to offer advice and to confirm your full instructions before concluding your will.
There is now no excuse for not having a will.

FDL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY, STRESS AND WORRY
Nobody ever gets married with the intention of separating from their partner. Yet it is a fact of modern life in Scotland that one in three marriages fail eventually.
If this happens to you, it is essential that you seek immediate advice from your solicitor. We have the experience to help you through this stressful time - we provide legal advice combined with understanding and patience at a time when your emotions and thoughts are often in a turmoil. Experience has taught us that separating couples go through a range of emotions from confusion, anger, blame, loneliness, guilt and - finally - acceptance.
We have the experience and ability to assist you throughout this period and will do so in an informal atmosphere in which you will feel able to let us help. You will need someone qualified and able to fight your corner, someone who will help give you the confidence to face the future, someone who will provide a sympathetic yet professional ear.
The Rights of Children
We recognise that children have both needs and legal rights. Our partners have young families themselves and are acquainted with child law in Scotland. Whether in relation to separation, divorce, education, adoption or maintenance, our experience can make all the difference
Powers of Attorney
Have you ever wondered how your day to day affairs would be managed if you were unable to deal with them yourself through some form of incapacity be that physical or mental?
At FDL we can provide you with clear and concise advice on how to prepare for the unthinkable. We are experienced in advising clients on all aspects of Powers of Attorney and Guardianship Orders under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
We have personal experience of dealing with such issues and are able to listen, empathise and advise anyone who has concerns in this area either for themself or a loved one.
Contact us either using our online enquiry form or just call. Appointments can be made to suit outside office hours and we can visit you or your loved one at home if that was more convenient.
