Gillespie Macandrew advises on over £205m of new build plot sales

Published: 21 January 2021
Time to read: 1 min

Leading Scottish law firm Gillespie Macandrew completed new build plot sales worth over £205m in 2020.  The Firm’s total plot sales reached 822 despite a challenging climate for the housing market including a period of standstill for the construction industry in spring 2020.

This strong performance, in difficult circumstances, can be attributed to previous investment in the team and the strength of its reputation among major UK housebuilders.

Harry Smith, Head of Housebuilder and Construction at Gillespie Macandrew, commented: “Despite the current challenges facing the housebuilding sector, 2020 remained strong in terms of delivery for our clients.  We continue to act for some of the largest and most active housebuilders in the UK and we remain positive that the market will regain some of its previous buoyancy.”

Gillespie Macandrew’s housebuilder team undertakes negotiations and delivery on strategic land acquisition, infrastructure requirements and new build sales across Scotland.
