Don’t worry we are still here for you at O’Hara Solicitors.
We are continuing to work during the pandemic, however we have some slight changes.
Please feel free to email us at any time as per usual. However, please do not visit our offices unless you have arranged a meeting. To protect our staff, we ask that you do not attend a prearranged meeting if you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms of Covid-19 or has done so in the last 7 days. Our offices are still open with the hours of Mon-Fri 9am-5pm.
On arrival we will take your temperature and ask you to sanitise your hands. We will also ask for your contact details in-line with our Covid Track & Trace database as per government guidance.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW ADMISSION INTO THE OFFICES WITHOUT A MASK.
If you fall under the mask exemption rules, we will ask you to do a video or phone call at this time.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and well during these unprecedented times.
A quick guide to moving home safely during this period has been created to help you understand what you, and anyone involved in your move, will need to do to provide a safe environment for everyone.
- the estate or letting agent
- the property lawyer
- the photographer
- the energy assessor
- the valuer or surveyor
- the removal company who move you
- someone helping you organise your mortgage
This guidance is aligned with the UK government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy and advice on home moving during the COVID-19 outbreak.
There’s no need to pull out of transactions, but where possible you should delay moving to a new house.
You should work with the other parties to agree a delay or another way to resolve the matter if:
- you’ve already exchanged contracts, and
- the property is currently occupied
If you’re moving into a vacant property, you can continue with the transaction. However, you must follow the government’s guidance on moving house.
We will continue to support you through the sales process and will help with the current difficulties of completing transactions.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about moving to a new house.
