We are all aware of numerous on-line “estate agents” now operating throughout the country. We have also seen their glossy advertising campaigns claiming they are many thousands of pounds cheaper than High Street agents. Well some of them may charge marginally less but not nearly as much as they claim. Indeed many expect to be paid their fees whether they sell your property or not! We have had many sellers come to us a few months down the line with horror stories. (Always read the small print remains the best advice). Recently we inherited a property from an online agent. Fortunately the “offer” they had secured (“the very best that the market was offering”) fell apart when passed to their on-line conveyancers. On moving to Andersons another offer was negotiated which was more than £20,000 higher. Penny wise, pound foolish anyone? Don’t be caught out.

Seven members of the Andersons’ Team scaled Britain’s highest mountain on the 22nd July raising funds for this year’s local cause. Departing from Ben Nevis “base camp” around 9am the team arrived back just after 6pm dragging their aching bones and limbs to the finish line. The aches and pains however just added to the great sense of achievement rightly enjoyed by the whole team. The seven intrepid adventurers taking part were Lorna Miller, Campbell Watson, Stewart Baillie, Lorraine Henderson, Yvonne Pearson, Alexa Mewse and Donna Wright. A few squally showers apart good weather was enjoyed for the ascent and the team managed to get a selection of excellent photographs to commemorate the day. (A small selection can be viewed below.) To date the team have smashed their fund raising target and any donations can still be made at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/andersonsllp-KHSrockchallenge. Each year Andersons select a small local group to be the beneficiary of our fundraising efforts. Prior recipients include the Day Centre and Kinross After School Club. This year’s beneficiaries are the Rock Challenge Group at Kinross High and details of this worthwhile cause can be found at this link (http://www.rockchallenge.co.uk/). Other fund raising events this year have included a Bake Sale and our Annual Quiz will be held on 29th September in the Windlestrae Hotel. If you are interested in attending please contact our office. In the meantime the thinking caps are on to think of another challenge for next year. Another mountain adventure is not being considered!

We were recently asked by Cleish Primary School to help judge some of the children’s presentations on a topic they had been working on to “explore and present information on the local area”. We really enjoyed watching all the short films and were delighted to choose our winner which we think was most informative, well thought out and had good use of sound effects and toy buses!
The winning entry is here for you to view.
Well done to the pupil’s of Cleish Primary for their imaginative film making….great work guys!️
