How the temporary closure of our offices affects property transactions.

We can do much of our work remotely and are still open for business.

A relaxation of the Scottish Government's restrictions on housing moves came in on Monday 29 June, as part of Phase 2 of lifting lock down restrictions.

We have implemented a number of new digital solutions that allow us to progress registration applications remotely.

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on how your particular application can be progressed at this time.

Why we closed our offices

Our offices have had to temporarily close to safeguard staff and the public’s wellbeing.

Some processes, such as the scanning and checking of paper documents on site, couldn't be done remotely.

Closing our offices meant we had to temporarily suspend our application record for registrations.

New emergency legislation is allowing us to create digital services to support the Scottish housing market during COVID-19.
