Dilapidations in England and Scotland. Our new white paper highlights the differences.

To celebrate the continued success of our Edinburgh office, and the increase in dilapidations instructions we are managing north of the border for our clients, we present a paper on recent changes to Scottish dilapidations law and procedure, and we identify the main differences between dilapidations in Scotland and south of the border in England and Wales.


TFT Edinburgh makes first promotion to partner on first anniversary

Neil Wotherspoon from TFT’s Edinburgh office has been promoted to Technical Partner. TFT Edinburgh was launched 12 months ago by Neil who joined TFT from AECOM. Since that time, the team has grown fourfold serving clients in Edinburgh and across Scotland and the North East of England including Screwfix, Tesco, Royal Bank of Scotland and Aviva Investors.

Alan Pemberton, Managing Partner, Tuffin Ferraby Taylor, said:

Neil’s promotion is well-deserved. He not only launched TFT Edinburgh but has seen its client base grow, expanded the team and increased our presence in Edinburgh’s strong commercial property market. One of Neil’s major strengths is his high-level client servicing that works alongside strong technical capability. It’s a pleasure to see this promotion come about only one year after his appointment.

Neil Wotherspoon, Technical Partner, Tuffin Ferraby Taylor, said:

With a robust construction sector and a fast-paced transactional market, Scotland is in a healthy position to capitalize on this type of market. I’m delighted to be continuing to play my part in TFT’s success here in Edinburgh.
