COVID-19 Advice For Conveyancing

Clarkson Hirst Solicitors

Conveyancing is restricted during the covid- 19 outbreak. This will restrict you from moving to or from an occupied property.please contact Clarkson hirst for advice on your particular case .

Official guidance to conveyancers is :


Conveyancers should continue to support the sales process as far as possible and should make sure their clients are aware of the difficulties of completing transactions in this period:

  • Conveyancers should continue to support the sales of unoccupied properties as far as possible.
  • Conveyancers should make every effort to support clients who are due to complete on occupied properties in the stay-at-home period to change this date.
  • Conveyancers should advise their clients who are ready to move not to exchange contracts on an occupied property unless they have made explicit provision for the risks presented by the virus.
  • Conveyancers should prioritise supporting anyone with symptoms, self-isolating or shielding from the virus and those they are in chain with, and we urge them to do all they can to help a new date to be agreed in these circumstances.
