As we are sure you will be aware, the impact of the Covid-19 Coronavirus continues to accelerate and affect many people’s lives in every aspect including the industries and workplaces they are part of.  We have been closely monitoring the guidance given by both the Government and the Legal Services Governing bodies about how and what work we can continue during this time to ensure we keep staff, clients and their families safe and help slow the speed of the virus.

With such uncertain times, the third party services and other industries we rely on to progress the work we do for clients are having to take unprecedented measures (such as the recent temporary closure of the Land Register of Scotland for Applications, and direct guidance from The Law Society of Scotland that conveyancing and transactional work should be ‘paused’) to ensure their staff are safe also.  Much of what we do cannot be done without these third party services being operational. 

The Governments have not categorised workers in our field to be ‘key workers’ who can continue to travel to work and therefore in these circumstances of national emergency, we feel that we are left with no other option but to close our office premises with immediate effect until further notice or until the restrictions placed on us by our Government are lifted. This action has been taken in the interests of public health and to ensure we are not putting our staff at risk.

We have been working remotely as much as possible to date to attend to client business but there is only so much that can be done from home without our main office being operational.  We also need staff in the office to operate. As we cannot have staff in the office, we cannot have staff working from home either. Therefore we are extremely limited in what we can do for you at present.

At this time, we would ask our clients and third parties to communicate by email to . If your matter is urgent, please call 01557 330 692, However, there are currently only two of us (Ian Rodger and Ross Ireland) to deal with everything. We may not be able to respond quickly. We will try to help if we can, but are very limited in our capacity to do so at present.

We will of course continue to closely monitor the Scottish and UK Governments advice and await the release of any further information or details that will impact on the welfare of our employees, clients and our business.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we all try to adjust and allow our country to ensure the safety of its people during these unprecedented times.  We hope that we will be able our doors again soon to continue servicing the needs of our clients and community.

Stay well and stay safe.


Your Williamson and Henry Team
