ASSC and DM Hall have entered into a three-year agreement which will see DM Hall as the preferred property services and advice provider for our membership. DM Hall is an ideal firm to support us in meeting our vision of a professional, vibrant and prosperous Scottish self-catering sector.
Founded in 1897, DM Hall has a long and established history and with 26 offices, they cover the length and breadth of Scotland with a multitude of property services as listed below.
Having worked closely with DM Hall over recent months, I am very excited about this partnership and have seen at first hand the real value that DM Hall will bring.

DM Hall will also be a significant partner at our conference next month. In addition to a DM Hall exhibition stand, DM Hall’s Head of Energy Mark O’Neill will be presenting a brief intro to DM Hall’s involvement with ASSC over the question of EPCs, identifying whether you should chose a domestic or commercial EPC, minimum energy standards on the horizon, and some silver linings – how an EPC can work for an occupier.
