Galbraith, the independent property consultancy in Scotland, is working with Roxburghe Estates on a project to bring six empty properties back into use.
The project to restore the former farm cottages at Cessford, inhabitable for years, has been awarded 40 per cent grant funding through the Scottish Government’s Rural Housing Fund.
Martin Cassels, Partner and Head of the building surveying division at Galbraith, said, “We are delighted to be assisting Roxburghe Estates with the construction management of this exciting project to bring the cottages back into the local housing market. Having lain empty for a long period this is a significant boost to the local area, with the properties being offered at affordable rents on completion.”
Roddy Jackson, Factor of Roxburghe Estates, added, “We are pleased to have the assistance of Galbraith’s building surveying team on this project, and across the wider Estate, using their knowledge and resources to complement our well established and respected team.”
