Direction Law continue to closely monitor and respond to the ongoing situation with regards Covid-19, with our priorities being to protect the welfare of our employees and ensure the continuity of our service to our clients.
As we continue through this time of uncertainty, we would like to reassure you of our commitment to keep the business running as usual over the coming weeks and months, and that we are doing everything we can to maintain our level of service.
All our teams are fully committed to ensure that Direction Law continues to work as uninterrupted as possible and in response to the latest advice from the Government, we are working hard to ensure that as many of our staff are able to work from home as often as possible and will also continue with our split shift working pattern when staff are required to be in the offices, to minimise contact with others.
We are confident that there will be no more than a third of the firm’s workforce in the offices at any one time.
Please be assured that we are continually monitoring Government advice and will change our working behaviour accordingly, as and when needed, and will provide updates to all staff and clients.
With regards to ongoing transactions and transactions where an unoccupied property is involved, the MHCLG (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) has confirmed that people are free to continue to buy and sell homes. This means parties can continue with transactions for the purchase of unoccupied properties where is no chain. However, people may not be able to move into a new home until it is safe to do so and should follow guidance from the Government and Public Health England/Wales at all times so that they do not cause risks to health or breach restrictions on movement. If you have any queries regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
