Notice to All

COVID-19 – We currently have two members of staff in one team self-isolating. Anybody wishing to speak with or send emails to Joanne Vickers or Atlanta Wilkinson-Groves will experience a delay in return calls and emails due to this as they are home working.

Royal Mail – They have severe delays so normal post may not reach us in the normal time frames unless it is sent Special Delivery.

Under the new restrictions to be imposed in England on 5th November, the Law Society have issued the following guidance surrounding house moves:-

Property market remains open – the regulations allow people to leave home under part 6, exception 2.g for the purposes of conducting the following activities in connection with the purchase, sale, letting or rental of a residential property:

  • visiting estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes
  • viewing residential properties to look for a property to buy or to rent
  • preparing a residential property to move in
  • moving house
  • visiting a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property

We have however taken the decision in order to safe guard our staff and for them to be able to effectively progress matters during the new restrictions, to close the office again to clients. There will be no appointments available between 5th November 2020 and 2nd December 2020.  Please do not attend the office for anything other than to post correspondence through our letterbox.

We will continue to monitor the situation regarding the new restrictions as we progress through the next few weeks.
