Our Preston Solicitors Discuss Being Lawyers In Lockdown
Posted on 15th April 2020
As part of our expert conveyancing team, Chloe Cardwell is one of our solicitors who is currently working from home, to ensure that your conveyance proceeds as normal. Chloe has commented on the experience:
“The office is my second home so it has, of course, taken some adjustment in working from home. I will comment on a positive note – the fridge and snacks are much closer when working from home, however, I am not sure that this will end as a positive!
We are well equipped to meet the needs of our clients in the same way that we would, had we been working in the office. We have remote log in facilities, the online collaboration of documents and, where necessary, have access to skype to avoid the need for face to face contact with others.
I am looking forward to getting back together with my team and not forgetting Dave, the office dog, of course. In the meantime, we will continue to cater for you conveyancing needs in any we can and hope that all are staying safe and well.”
On the advice of Michael Gove, moving house for many has been delayed. Our team are, however, working to ensure that, where possible, completions can take place, and matters can be progressed as far as possible, given the current restrictions.
It is still possible for completions to take place for a number of transactions, such as:
- Land Transactions: With land transactions there, usually, is no need for a physical hand over of keys, or for contact between seller and buyer, therefore, completions of such matters can still proceed, provided that, where necessary, social distancing is observed and followed. If you are planning on selling land, see our blog in which our Preston solicitors discuss some key considerations, here.
- Vacant Properties: Where properties are vacant, this can rid the need for third party involvement, such as removal firms, and can allow those moving to vacant properties to do so safely. There is, of course, question arising out of the hand over of keys, for example, however, our Preston solicitors are taking matters on a case by case basis and advising our valued clients of the best possible ways to proceed, in light of the current restrictions.
As above, our solicitors in Preston are taking matters individually and, as such, this is not to say that your conveyancing transaction needs to come to a holt. Our team are very much still working to assist you every step of the way.
We are, as always, welcoming queries from all clients, old and new. Get in touch with your local solicitors today, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, where our team will be delighted to assist you.
We hope that you are all keeping safe and well.
