We Were Burgled Not Once, But Twice!

We Were Burgled Not Once, But Twice!

17 February 2020

Hot on the heels of the burglary of our Hillsborough office on Valentine’s Day, we were alarmed to become the targets of a second break-in – this time at our former Lettings Hub in Crookes.

Once again, we count ourselves lucky however that, just like the Hillsborough burglary, nobody was hurt, and nothing was taken from the premises that could not be replaced.

Fortunately, the efforts we made after the first burglary meant even fewer things were taken. We were immensely grateful for all the support we received during this time and, thanks to the tremendous efforts of our supportive friends and South Yorkshire Police, we were able to catch the culprit of both crimes.

Reflecting on these unfortunate events a year on, it is telling of the immense impact COVID-19 has had in the UK that our double burglary feels like a footnote at the start of the year. However, we are proud to have come away from these unfortunate incidents even stronger.

We are MorfittSmith and We are Still Standing.

Stay safe Sheffield.

    If you are thinking of selling your house we cannot praise everyone at MorfittSmith enough. A truly First Class Service from all concerned and nothing … More was too much trouble. We cannot thank them enough.

    If you need to let your property then we highly recommend you consider using MorfittSmith Estate & Letting Agent. We recently engaged their services … More to let our property and the whole process was very efficient. The staff are friendly and guided us through everything. They were quick to reply to emails and telephone calls no matter what our query or concern. Finding the right tenant for us (and the property) was clearly their main aim and they did not disappoint us. Thank you MorfittSmith, your customer service was excellent.

    We were quite urgent with trying to find a lettings property and stuck with trying to find somewhere that met needs. Both Emma and Tom from the team were … More so helpful in consolidating what our requirements were, suggesting a specific area and providing us with quick viewing dates where they could. A very well informed, professional and friendly agency
