After the English property market re-opened on Wednesday 13th May 2020, we are delighted to confirm that the restrictions in place in Scotland have now been lifted as from Monday 29th June 2020.

We have adapted to a new reality –  we understand that safety is paramount and have brought in many extra safety measures as part of our operational readiness plans to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and communities.

In support, we have prepared a suite of COVID-19 Information sheets for inspection/viewing of occupied properties to guide owners/householders and clients alike as we step into the new normal.

Les McAndrew, Senior Partner, said “Graham + Sibbald have been open throughout lockdown, albeit working remotely, away from our local offices and using technology to connect with people. We were able to provide a range of services, albeit reduced, in line with the UK and Scottish Government’s guidance, so we are looking forward to gradually increasing our service offering as restrictions are now being lifted.”

Graham Tonner, Residential Partner, commented “After three months of lockdown I am delighted that the property market is able to begin recovering. We are looking forward to booking in surveys for our clients and customers once again, and can assure you that we will be following strict procedures to ensure that all valuations are completed safely and securely. It’s great to be back!”
