At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Victoria AquinoThe latest health scare is that we could be at risk of radon gas.  I had never heard of this gas before but heard that high levels are thought to be present in some areas across Scotland.  Should I be worried?

Radon gas is part of the radioactive decay chain of natural uranium and is produced in low levels around the world.   Although uranium is usually thought of as some kind of nuclear power, it is also a naturally occurring element which can be found in rocks.

There are some places where there is more natural uranium in the rocks and when the rocks decay, the gas can seep up into houses.  If you breathe in to much of this gas, it is thought that there could be a potential risk of lung cancer.

Expert Neil McColl, head of radon at the Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards has advised that smokers are particularly at risk.  Radon is reported to be responsible for around 1,100 lung cancer related deaths in the UK each year.

You can check on the radon website if your particular area is at risk and you can also ask them for detectors to carry out a check of your property.  https://www.ukradon.org/
