• Market leading commission (typically 1.25%) – Paid on day of completion

Commenting, David Johnson of David Johnson & Co solicitors, Edinburgh, said: “In our view Lowry offers a really effective service for residential property buyers in Scotland - each new instruction pushes us to react in short timescales but with sensible proforma documentation and pragmatic solutions to any issues most purchasers agents up here have been able to work with us to get the deals done quickly and effectively for their clients - we have had no repossession instructions so the loans must be working.”
