DJ Laing launches new online property buying webinar series


27th July 2020

A Tayside property developer has launched a new series of online webinars aimed at helping home buyers during this uncertain time.

DJ Laing Homes has launched a series of webinars aimed to look at the different options and changes in buying, financing and government initiatives when buying a new home.

The first webinar in the series is their Dundee Property Market Update in partnership with Darren Leahy, Partner from Lindsays, Solicitors and Estate Agents  along with Karen Nicoll, Managing Director of DJ Laing Homes.

Darren and Karen will provide practical advice and guidance on buying a new home and any related issues and changes due to the current situation along with information on our new build developments.

These webinars will provide real value for prospective home buyers who are looking to buy a new build property in the near future and will explain key updates following the COVID19 situation. Further webinars will follow in partnership with CARA Mortgages Services covering key topics.

Karen Nicoll, Managing Director of DJ Laing Homes said:  “DJ Laing Homes has enjoyed strong sales performance since the market re-opened within Dundee, with many buyers taking advantage of the extended Help to Buy Scheme. Our clients have been taking the opportunity of a variety of finance options including Help to Buy funding which is available for new properties below £200,000. The new ‘First Home Fund’ will also allow even more first time buyers to get on the property ladder and continue to boost the Tayside property market.”

Darren Leahy, Partner in the Commercial Property team at Lindsays in Dundee, said:  “We know that the pent up demand from the lockdown period has indeed materialised in the market. At Lindsays, we have seen a huge flurry of interested new buyers. At this stage it is difficult to say for how long this will continue, and much of it depends on what happens in the wider economy as we begin to open up and recover from the COVID-19 outbreak.”

“There’s no doubt that the changes in Land and Buildings Transaction tax will boost demand and encourage people to make a move they’ve maybe been considering for a while. Overall our team expects a busy summer working with buyers and sellers. We’re delighted to partner with DJ Laing in this new webinar series to help get new buyers on the front foot.”

DJ Laing’s first Dundee Property Market Update Webinar will take place on Thursday 30th July at 6.30pm via Zoom and will also be live-streamed on Facebook and Youtube.

There are a limited number of places available – for full details of the webinar and to book a space in advance, please visit
