Founded in 1843, Blackwood & Smith have been proudly serving the people of Peebles and the surrounding area for generations.

We have a team of five qualified solicitors able to provide a range of legal services including the purchase and sale of residential property, the purchase, sale and leasing of commercial property, preparation of Wills, Living Wills and Powers of Attorney, advice on executries and trusts, employment law, and family law including separation and divorce.

We also have a busy estate agency office from which we sell property throughout Peebles, Innerleithen, West Linton, Cardrona, Eddleston and the surrounding area.


Why choose us?

Here are just a few reasons why people choose to sell their property with us:

Expert Local Knowledge

There is a lot more to Estate Agency than just taking photographs and placing an online advert. Housing markets are very local and it is essential that you therefore have advice from an expert on the local property market. As a Firm we deal with many hundreds of transactions every year, both sales and purchases, estate agency and conveyancing. We have been buying and selling property in Peeblesshire and surrounding areas – including the rest of the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh and the Lothians - for generations and know the market here inside out.

Conveyancing and Estate Agency Under One Roof

As a Solicitor Estate Agent we are able to deal with your entire property sale, from initial marketing through to completion of the conveyancing and handover of keys, as well as your onward purchase. All our Estate Agency clients have a solicitor contact right from the outset to assist and advise throughout the process of selling and buying. Moving home is already a very stressful process; why add to the stress by having to deal with multiple different agents. We aim to keep the process as simple as possible.

ESPC Membership

As a Solicitor Estate Agent we can provide marketing for your property in the ESPC. An advert in ESPC includes a listing on the ESPC and SPC Scotland websites and on the ESPC mobile App, advertising in the ESPC showroom on George Street, Edinburgh and advertising in the ESPC weekly paper, over 30,000 copies of which are distributed.

Expert Conveyancing

We have a team of five fully-qualified Solicitors experienced in conveyancing. We deal with residential, commercial and rural property and can advise on purchases, sales and leasing. We don’t just carry out conveyancing for properties in the Scottish Borders, and instead are instructed in transactions involving property anywhere in Scotland, whether in the city or in the countryside.

A Personal Service

We pride ourselves on offering a traditional service. In a world where many services are increasingly offered through automated processes or call centres, we still prefer to arrange face-to-face meetings with our clients, either in our offices or in our clients’ own homes. In our view this is the best way to advise clients on important matters such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Executries and Family Law.

Trusted Advisers

With over 175 years of providing legal services, we have been trusted advisers for countless clients over generations. It is not unusual for a client to tell us that we have been looking after their family’s legal affairs for over half a century, and perhaps longer. Although our solicitors have changed gradually over the years, our current team still have the same commitment to offering good-quality, personal advice when you need it.
