A guidance document has been issued outlining restrictions to the services of Sheriff Officers within the five tiers of protection levels aligned to the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 guidelines. This new system has been sanctioned by the Directorate for Justice within the Scottish Government’s Civil Law and Legal System Division and it is expected that all sheriff officers should conform.
Services will continue across Scotland with no restrictions applying within protection level tiers, including eviction. Sheriff Officers are to continue to take necessary precautions during visits, and they will assess any situations where it is not safe for them to proceed.
