Life in Lockdown; Your Preston Solicitors’ Weekly Review
Posted on 1st May 2020
This week, our team have had an exceptional week, with some glowing reviews from our valued clients. See for yourself, here. Our team pride ourselves on the hard work and determination, put in to each and every single file we handle, to meet the needs of our clients. So, it is humbling to see that the same is being recognised, particularly in light of the present circumstances. Thank you to our wonderful clients.
So, how are you coping, we ask?
Given the timing that we have now been facing lockdown measures, we envisage that many are running out of surfaces to clean, wardrobes to sort, and baking to be done.
One London man, Max Raymond, has taken the time to convert the staircase in his property, using recycled wood, into an indoor climbing wall. Raymond commented that he usually leads a very active lifestyle and needed something to keep him going during this time, and what better than a climbing wall? Our Preston solicitors are intrigued to know how this would sit, or indeed stand, with the Building Regulations Inspector.
In contrast, some are stuck in micro-apartments, as Metro News report, including Dana Amundsen in Ohio. Amundsen has been confined to the 289 square feet of her micro apartment, however, comments that this has been a breeze for her as her apartment is cosy and clean.
The pandemic is affecting us all, globally, so, what next, our Preston solicitors question. For many, the crisis has only increased those with house envy so, why not use this time to create your dream home checklist? Here are a few examples to get you started:
- Garden Space: If this lockdown has highlighted anything for prospective property purchasers, it has been the want for a garden area that can be enjoyed freely. For many, inclusive of those living in apartments and flats, the lockdown period has been spent indoors with no access to a garden area. This feature has, no doubt, increased on the agenda for many as a result. Our property team are gearing up for lots of new house purchases when, as our clients keep saying, ‘this thing is all over’ – it would appear that as a nation, we don’t like talking about Covid-19.
- Location: Wanting to make the most of that one-hour daily exercise we are currently permitted, many are now much more optimistic about moving to the countryside, and away from the high-rise buildings of the inner city. In contrast, for some, this has brought about quite the opposite. Those residing in more rural areas have found it more difficult to access goods and services, such as the local supermarket, particularly in light of the fact that, at present, public transport is extremely limited, making a property location with easy access being of importance.
- Personal Preferences: For our conveyancing solicitor, Chloe Cardwell, a large hallway (might we add, not one which has been converted into a climbing wall, as per the above) and a walk-in wardrobe are the dream, whereas for our Sarah Lees, the dream is a large outdoor arena space where she can ride her horses. We all have those personal touches that we would love our property to have, so question, what is yours?
