Your conveyancing and Covid-19

At JCP Solicitors our IT systems mean that we can securely work from home and process everything as we normally would in the office. Therefore our Conveyancing service remains uninterrupted. We are experiencing a number of enquiries at the moment so would like to reassure you with the following statement:

During the conveyancing process it is unlikely that we would ever need to meet you face to face. Instructions can be taken by telephone, after which we will email or post your documents to you. These documents may include forms to fill in and documents to sign. You can scan these at home, or you can take a picture on your phone and email us the image. 

We are hopeful that other solicitors, banks, lenders and removal companies will be very much ‘business as usual’, and if there are problems, that parties will work together and take a pragmatic approach to ensure that transactions complete as quickly as possible.

However, we must be aware of the possibility that we could reach a time where there are delays, for example in lenders releasing mortgage funds, other parties’ solicitors not being fully operational or removal companies being short-staffed or having access issues.
