Twelve months after opening its doors as the newest addition to Allied Surveyors Scotland’s commercial agency network, the firm’s east coast office is revealing its latest flurry of property deals.

Over 30 individual transactions have been completed during the period with sales, lettings and acquisitions occurring across 6 local authority areas including East Lothian, City of Edinburgh, Fife and the Borders.

Most recently, acting on behalf of Shaf Rasul’s SRA Ventures, 141 Dalry Road in Edinburgh has been let to a private tenant at £12,500 per annum on a new 10-year lease.

Elsewhere in the city a 660 sq ft office suite at 12d Timber Bush in Leith has been sold on behalf of a private landlord for an undisclosed sum. 

Meanwhile, acting jointly with Hastings Legal, a 3-bed townhouse and retail unit at 5 Market Square and 2 Church Square in Duns has been sold to a private buyer for £212,000. 

Also in the Borders, a former fire station in Kelso, which carries planning consent for two semi-detached dwellings, has been sold for £100,000.

“In our first year of trading we have successfully completed a diverse range of property deals, including these ones during the course of March,” said director of commercial agency (east), Iain Mercer.

“Between ourselves and our colleagues in Glasgow and Inverness Allied Surveyors can provide comprehensive agency coverage as well as valuation and building surveying skills.”

Last week it was announced that Allied had completed their second retail acquisition on behalf of the Edinburgh-based charity St Columba’s Hospice.

Allied Surveyors is one of Scotland’s largest chartered surveying practices with 32 offices, including 3 regional centres for commercial agency, employing around 160 staff.
