2015 edition now registered and available for use

Following extensive consultation, the Scottish New Build Standard Clauses (2015 edition), negotiated between Alan Minty of Gillespie Macandrew and Ross MacKay, convener of the Society’s Property Law Committee, have now been registered in the Books of Council & Session. These can be used to assist in transactions where the seller is a builder selling a new-build property, to assist both sellers and purchasers in negotiations.

To reflect commercial requirements, they are necessarily weighted in favour of the builder, but, notwithstanding this, they are intended to reflect an appropriately balanced position which will hopefully facilitate those selling on behalf of, or buying from, a builder. A client guide and practitioners’ guide will follow in due course.

The clauses can be downloaded from the Society’s website via the professional practice updates for June 2015.
