Estate Agency, Sale and Purchase Conveyancing, Mortgages, Wills, Power of Attorney, Executries and other legal advice can all be managed in-house by experts in the relevant field.

Neilsons Solicitors and Estate Agents has been providing legal services since it was founded by Terry Neilson in 1977. We were one of the first Firms to make legal services accessible by opening offices on a shop front basis rather than in an expensive elegant Georgian building.

We speak to clients on a friendly first name terms basis and wherever possible avoid the use of legal terminology and jargon.

We are one of Scotland’s few ‘One-Stop Property Shops’.

Not all firms or Agents offer the same breadth of expertise in-house as Neilsons do.

Estate Agency, Sale and Purchase Conveyancing, Mortgages, Wills, Power of Attorney, Executries and other legal advice can all be managed in-house by experts in the relevant field.

Our basic philosophy has led to the growth of the firm to the point where we are now one of the biggest Solicitor Estate Agents advertising in the Edinburgh Solicitors’ Property Centre (ESPC) while still retaining the friendly and informal relationship with our clients that has been the trademark of the firm since its inception.

  • “Fantastic service from all at Neilsons for both the sale of our old home and purchase of the new one. Kept everything simple, acted efficiently and bent over backwards to suit our needs – can’t recommend them enough. Thanks again to Steve, Ginny & Caitlin.”

  • “I recently instructed Neilsons to draw up Wills for my husband and I. The whole experience was excellent from start to finish and I could not fault anything. A special thanks goes to Margaret at the Picardy Place office who was very nice and guided us in the right direction. Margaret made it all very easy for us as we were not sure what to do at first and our meeting with her was friendly and informative. It was all sorted quickly and efficiently and without any stress. I would highly recommend Neilsons. I will definitely be back!”
