Paul Carr, from DM Hall said: “It is extremely pleasing to have attracted a multinational business of Copart’s standing to Iona House.

“The letting is proof that Fife’s reputation as an office location continues to improve in the eyes of occupiers who may previously have limited their searches to Edinburgh and the Lothians.”

He also revealed interest in taking the remaining space at the office.

He added: “We are keen to attract existing Fife businesses who may need more space, along with those who may wish to relocate to Fife, which strives to be the best place in which to do business.”

The commercial interest was welcomed by the local authority.

Pamela Stevenson, service manager for Fife Council economic development, said: “Iona House is a flagship property for Fife Council, comparing favourably with any other building in the area in terms of quality, management and specification.”
