Update 27th March

The Government have published some clearer advice in respect of the above.

In simple terms, they have rightly paused the sales process and due to this, lenders are working to extend mortgage offers.

Where contacts have been exchanged, the move date should be deferred, with a new completion date to be mutually agreed by the chain. If new a date can’t be agreed and safety guidelines can be observed, then the move may be able to proceed.

If the move is simple single transaction to an empty dwelling, then this can proceed so long as the safety guidelines are observed. Again this assumes that contracts have already been exchanged.

Our view is that buyers and sellers should remain committed to their transactions whilst there is a delay to the process. Should you have any concerns or queries, please feel free to contact us via the usual email addresses.

Coronavirus Statement

20 March 2020 

I would like to reassure you that we are open for business, adopting a business as usual policy albeit in unusual times. In order to do this, I have implemented changes in the way we operate.

From today, I have put in place a number of contingency plans that include home working and adopting technology including video tour viewings and conferencing in order that we may continue to offer our award-winning customer service.

Please be assured that my first priority is to protect our customers, my teams at Harrison Brant and Osborn Humphreys, our lettings brand.

This also means that I require the assistance of all sellers, landlords, applicants and tenants who should let us know should there be any reason in accordance with the Government’s current guidelines, for us NOT to conduct viewings and/or appointments of any kind. This also applies to our teams, contractors, surveyors etc.

I wish to limit the possibility of spreading the virus and with this in mind, I require all parties to confirm by email, at the time of making appointments, there is no reason for us not to do so. Should there be a change in your health or those connected to you, prior to the appointment, please let us know. Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understating on this.

I would ask that where possible, you contact us by phone or email rather than visiting the offices. Please note that the teams will do their very best to respond to you in an efficient manner. However, response times may be a little longer than usual.

I am continuing to monitor the situation and will keep you advised should there be any necessary changes to the above.
