Everyone needs to settle down!
We are currently living in a global pandemic, where our lives are revolving around COVID-19.
The biggest question that we are being asked daily by our clients is ‘will this affect my Settlement?’. Unfortunately, nothing is set in concrete at this stage.
At this time we are taking additional procedures and going to great lengths to move every paper transaction capable of settling into our digital electronic platform, PEXA. Where this is not possible, we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that we maintain social distancing in accordance with government requirement at all times to the other parties involved in these transactions.
In the coming weeks, you may find our hardworking team begin to work remotely. This will not affect current paper transactions that will continue to settle during this time. Our team will continue to make contact with our settlement agents in order for our paper settlement packets to be collected for paper settlements to occur.
As we start to settle more files electronically, our team can work remotely without the need to make contact with our settlement agents or attend bank branches to draw cheques.
Our primary focus for the foreseeable future is the health and safety of our clients, staff and families. We apologise for any delays that may be caused by COVID-19, and reassure our clients that Richard Hoare & Co is working tirelessly to ensure that settlements are finalised and completed.
We encourage you to contact us should you have any queries or concerns regarding your matter amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic.
