Following Boris Johnson’s speech regarding the latest lockdown (4th January 2021), Pennine Law Solicitors confirm we are still fully operational and open for business.
The safety and well being of our clients, colleagues and the community is our number one priority.
We would like to reassure all our clients, both old and new, that we are here to help. Operating both from home and within the office, we always have staff available to support you. For safety purposes during lockdown all our offices are closed to the public unless there is no alternative to a pre-planned visit. Due to the high volume of telephone and video appointments we politely request you contact us in advance to make arrangements whether telephone/video or in person appointments.
In the extreme event you need to visit our offices we confirm meeting rooms have been made COVID safe. However, in line with Government advice, we ask you only travel where absolutely necessary. We are happy to continue to talk to you via email, telephone or video calls.
When visiting, we will perform temperature checks on entry, and ask you wear a face covering (unless exempt) paying attention to directions given by staff. You should give each other plenty of space. Our offices have hand sanitiser and cleaning agents available which you should when you arrive. If you are showing any symptoms of coronavirus, or are feeling unwell, please DO NOT visit our offices.

Can I Still Move House?
Yes, the housing market remains open. The Governments advice on moving house remains the same. You can still view properties, estate agents can still operate, and removal firms can still work, as can tradespeople.
The government’s guidelines indicate you should not, unless it is unavoidable, enlist help from anyone outside your household or support bubble to move house and likewise you must ensure you follow social distancing advice at all times.
Our conveyancing team continue to work and will be progressing matters as swiftly as possible.
Writing a Will
We are still continuing to provide a Will writing service. Our offices will be open for Will signings, alternatively we can visit you from a safe distance to witness your Will. Talk to our team to discuss the best solution for you.
We will continue to take instructions over the phone, or even via a video call if you prefer, when we can discuss your wishes and options available. A Will can be drafted and then once approved by you we can make arrangements for the signing. We assure you that staff visiting will have PPE in place.
