(i) visiting estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes;

(iii) preparing a residential property to move in;

(iv) moving house;

(v) visiting a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property.”

Simply Conveyancing continue to be open for business throughout this second lockdown period. We are continuing to progress pipelines, and following our successful first lockdown, we anticipate there will be no disruption to service this time around.
