Business Operation Update: Covid-19

Providing an update on how Middleton Ross are continuing to provide a service to clients.


At Middleton Ross we are continuing to monitor official advice from the Scottish Government and NHS, implementing changes to ensure we are acting in accordance with the latest guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are undertaking a range of activities to safeguard our employees and clients alike and wish to communicate clearly how these changes may affect their dealings with Middleton Ross.

Measures we have taken in line with official guidance and advice

Offices

We have now closed our Dingwall and Alness offices to the public, whilst the legal, finance and management team continue to work remotely.  If you have any queries, please continue to call our office on 01349 862214.

 

Estate Agency Department

The estate agency department is closed.  If you are a client with us and have any urgent concerns you can continue to call our office and a member of the wider team can discuss your query.  Also, if you have any queries regarding a property for sale and would like further information please contact our office on 01349 862214.

 

Professional services

Whilst we have restricted areas of the business for safety reasons, we have put in place alternative ways in which to conduct our day to day business.  As such we can facilitate much of the services as before, however, in a different way.  We are utilising video conferencing in place of face to face meetings and remote working to enable our team to continue working on transactions. 

If you are a current client and have a query, or a new business enquiry please call 01349 862214 for further details on any of the below services.

●      Wills

●      Power of Attorney

●      Guardianships

●      Crofting

Due to changes with Registers of Scotland we are restricted in completing property transactions; for further detail on this please refer to our early blog post:
