MILLER Homes, the Edinburgh headquartered UK house builder, has announced it is over 90 per cent forward sold across its Scottish developments for 2017.

Miller Homes is due to start work on 11 new sites in Scotland between now and 2018.

Stewart Lynes, managing director of the firm, said his team enter the second half of the year in buoyant mood.

He said: “The market in Scotland has remained optimistic despite the uncertainty you would expect in a General Election year, not to mention post-Brexit referendum.

“Sustained demand from purchasers, low interest rates and improved mortgage lending have meant customers have pushed aside any fears of uncertainty, continuing with their day-to-day lives.”
