We continue to monitor and act on guidance from the Scottish government, NHS and other relevant agencies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients, team and the wider public.

Steps taken include:-

  • our team continue to work in the main, remotely from home;
  • in line with government guidelines, we are avoiding unnecessary travel;
  • physical attendance at conferences and events has been suspended and only essential meetings, such as property viewings for let properties, etc, are being undertaken;
  • recommended hygiene and social distancing procedures are being observed and implemented.

Our remote working systems have operated well, aided to a large part by our capable and highly motivated team, who continue to work hard to ensure that our client service is maintained. We remain very grateful to them for this and for their continued support in what have been challenging times for everyone.

Video call and conference facilities continue to meet our need for meetings and, as everyone has become more used to this way of communicating, have proven highly useful in ensuring business can go on, insofar as possible, as normal. 

In the meantime, our team can still be contacted by way of their usual phone numbers or email addresses, as well as via our main office number.

As always, our principal aim remains to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our team, clients and the wider public, whilst providing the services our clients require.

Thank you for your continued support and please do stay safe.
