Separation Agreement Scotland Example

It would not be inappropriate for the unit of practice acting for either spouse to accept instructions from both parties concerning the marketing of the property, but in the absence of an agreement signed at the time of receipt of the offer, they should not act on the transfer. Where a practical entity is in the process of selling collective property and it is found in the course of the transaction that the spouses have separated or are about to separate, the unit of practice may continue to operate at the time of the sale, but may not act for one of them with regard to his matrimonial affairs. Clients should be referred to other agents for such consultation. The unit of practice acting at the time of sale should distribute the free product in accordance with the title or subsequent written agreement of the spouses. The practice body cannot advise one of the spouses to enter into such an agreement, as there is a clear conflict of interest between them. . . .
