Conveyancing is the legal work which is required to transfer property. This includes for example examining title deeds and searches and preparing the necessary legal documentation.

Residential Conveyancing

We have many years of experience in residential conveyancing and so are well placed to assist you with property sales and purchases.

Commercial Conveyancing

We can assist you with commercial sales and purchases involving family businesses or larger enterprises. We also have experience of wind farm developments.


The last few years have seen an enormous expansion in renewable energy projects across our area. Such developments offer new opportunities for farmers and crofters who wish to utilise their land for such a project. The legal paperwork involved is not to be taken lightly as Option Agreements and Leases can tie you up for years. We can guide you through the paperwork.

Caithness & Sutherland are two of the six crofting counties. Crofting Law can be a minefield for those owning or tenanting registered crofts or those hoping to do so. We can help you through the maze.

Legal Services

For a century Young Robertson & Co has played an important part in the community and in business life. Today, as one of the longest established legal firms in the area we provide a comprehensive range of services both to individuals and commercial organisations. As a general practice with long established traditions the firm place great emphasis not only on the quality of its legal advice but also on the level of personal service.

The firm’s growth and success over the years has been mainly due to a high level of care, maintenance of professional standards and satisfied and loyal clients who have recommended the firm to their families, freinds or business associates. Young Robertson & Co is large enough to enable clients to obtain specialist legal help when required, yet small enough to retain the personal touch at realistic and competitive fee levels.

We have lawyers who specialise in different legal areas. Your matter can be handled by the lawyer most suitable for you given the nature of the problem.


We are always happy to have an initial meeting at no cost. We will also be pleased to advise you on your elegibility for legal aid. Costs for many transactions can be confirmed at the outset.

Powers Of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a document which authorises someone you trust to deal with your financial affairs. This is something you may consider as you get older. If you become ill or suffer an accident or have diminished mental capacity your Attorney can step in to deal with matters on your behalf. Many people also decide to grant a Power of Attorney if they are to be out of the country for a lengthy period.

You can also appoint a Welfare Attorney to make decisions on matters such as personal care, where you should live, and what medical treatment is appropriate if you are unable to make these decisions yourself in the future.

If you have not granted a Power of Attorney but become incapacitated your family may have to apply to the Court for a guardianship application. This is a much more costly procedure and involves ongoing administration and monitoring by the Office of the Public Guardianship.
