Covid-19 UpdateA message from the Team
The safety of our clients and staff is our number one priority and so, following UK and Scottish government advice, Simpson & Marwick have taken the difficult decision to close our offices during these unprecedented times.
We fully understand that as our clients or future clients you may have many questions and will be wondering what this means for you whether you are presently selling or buying a property with us.
At Simpson & Marwick we are still very much open for business having put in place remote working facilities that allow us to progress both our estate agency and legal conveyancing services as best we can. However, a number of the team have now been put on the furlough scheme so we are operating with a skeleton staff. We will endeavour to do our utmost to keep you informed and updated as much as we can under these exceptional circumstances. In short, we are here to help you and we are more than happy to discuss your property related needs at any time.
Estate Agency Team
Our Estate Agency team is available for virtual valuations, in some cases virtual viewings, and meetings/calls. If you would like advice on selling your property or viewing one of our properties on the market please feel free to contact us at email@example.com or call our Edinburgh office on 0131 525 8600 and East Lothian office on 01620 892 500 and we will respond to you as quickly as we can.
If you have a question for our Legal Team as an existing client regarding a current transaction or if you would like a quotation as a potential new client please do not hesitate to contact Bobby Fife on 0131 525 8614 and firstname.lastname@example.org or Suzanne Chitty on 0131 524 2266 and email@example.com
Please note that with regard to current transactions, The Law Society of Scotland has recently issued some guidance to say that these should not settle at the moment. What is clear is that all transactional work will face both considerable disruption and delay. With many firms temporarily closing, we may be unable to even obtain any updates on transactions. Restrictions have also impacted removal companies and banks, and the closure of the Land Registers of Scotland means registering new titles is impossible at this time.
We are all affected by this pandemic and we would ask you to be as patient and understanding as possible during a time which is difficult and trying for everyone.
We thank you for your cooperation and please keep yourselves and your families safe.
