To our lovely clients,
Bercote & Co are committed to the well-being of our community. Amid the uncertainties about COVID-19 (coronavirus) and in the interests of protecting our staff, clients and the wider community we have taken the difficult decision to close our office as of Tuesday 24th March.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but one made for the well-being and safety of the Bercote team as well as the best interests of our valued clients.
The Government advice is very clear and that is to reduce as much movement and interaction as possible. Encouraging people to come into the office is in direct conflict with the Government guidelines, and as a business we 100% back the Government’s decision. Nonetheless we will continue to operate from a home working basis, our lines will still be open, emails will be monitored, and we will offer as much help as possible to our wonderful clients throughout this uncertain time. Meetings in the office will still be available on an appointment only basis and will be conducted within the government guidelines. However, we would obviously prefer to avoid this where possible.
Sales will continue to progress, and legal completions will proceed. We are working alongside solicitors who are also working from home to ensure the sales of our mutual clients are progressing, and the office will be manned for key collections on the day of legal completion. Rest assured this will not completely prevent sales from advancing.
With regards to viewing appointments, due to the government guidelines being imposed we can no longer offer occupied properties accompanied viewings. If you would like any viewings to go ahead then we would ask that you conduct these yourself, with the government guidelines in mind. We will request all viewer’s keep to the stated 2 metre distance and obviously before attendance we are ensuring that they, nor any household members, have experienced any symptoms relating to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
We will continue to offer accompanied viewings on vacant properties, with the above Government guidelines in mind. Our accompanied viewers will be operating appointments with protective masks and gloves, and where possible they will also carry hand sanitizer. Obviously, we have no idea how long we will be closed for but we will be active on phones and emails to discuss anything our clients need.
Fingers crossed, this will all be resolved in a relatively short time and we can get everything back to normal again.
Take care, stay safe and hopefully we'll get through this together!
