"What use class is this property?" It is a question we are regularly asked by occupiers who are often looking to lease or buy a commercial property, but are unsure as to whether or not their intended use will comply. When we market a property we will state on our marketing board and particulars if the property is, for example, a shop or an office. This may also be displayed as a ‘Class 1’ or a ‘Class 2’; it can be confusing if you are not familiar with the terminology!
We have created a document which is the current Use Class Order (Scotland) making clear the type of property uses falling under each use class. Download your guide to use classes in Scotland here.
