Coronavirus update - 05/01/2021

Whilst increasing lockdown measures pose additional restrictions for most of us, there is some positive news in that the property market in Scotland will not shut down in the way that it did earlier in 2020 and activities in connection with moving home (including viewing a property), or for activities in connection with the maintenance, purchase, sale, letting, or rental of residential property is permitted.

Of course our priority remains, the health and safety of our staff and that of our Clients and Customers, and we continue to ensure our business continues in the safest and most effective way.
