The Scottish Government has released new guidance on moving home in the midst of Coronavirus.
In an update to their earlier guidance, buyers and sellers are urged to delay their transactions until the stay-at-home measures have been relaxed. The Scottish Government released a useful frequently asked questions document, which is available for viewing here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-moving-home/pages/overview/
At Macnabs we are lucky to be able to work remotely from the safety of our own homes.
Our NHS and key workers are working tirelessly to ensure we stay safe and keep services running as smoothly as possible, so to say thank you we are offering a 15% discount on all fees throughout 2020 for anyone who has key worker status*.
Throughout the month of April we will also be donating 10% of our fees from Wills and Powers of Attorney to the NHS Tayside Health Fund.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to our amazing NHS staff who are working endlessly during the coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore from now until the end of April we will be donating 10% of our fees from Wills and Powers of Attorney to the NHS Tayside Health Fund.
Everyone should have a Will and Power of Attorney in place, not just now because of the coronavirus pandemic, but so that we all prepare for our future.
On 20th March the Chancellor announced a package of measures aimed at supporting business and protecting jobs throughout the UK.
The headline of course is that where businesses were to furlough (or lay off as we know it in Scotland) employees, then the Government would pay 80% of their salary up to a maximum of £2,500 per month - the "Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme"
This provides some much needed real support for both business owners and employees across the whole spectrum of industries in Scotland. The timing of it is particularly important for businesses in the hospitality industry where the Government also in effect ordered their businesses to shut down and send their employees home at the same time. What we didn't receive (understandably) were details - this is a "one size fits all" policy and of course it would be impossible for the Government to have provided that and unreasonable for us to expect it at the time.
