Covid-19 and Conveyancing Spagnuolo Lawyers

Re: COVID-19 and Conveyancing

So here is where we are at:

  1. Our email and phones are blowing off the hook; unless you are a top referral partner, we do not have time to answer your “quick question”; keep watching for emails like this, or our Facebook page for future updates;
  2. We still cannot sign remotely; still need to meet clients, but the appointment times are being shortened;
  3. Many of our satellite offices are closing; the only office we can guarantee social distancing is our Coquitlam office; your clients may need to come here; while it seems far, it is right on the border of Coquitlam, Burnaby and New West, kind of right in the middle of the lower mainland;
  4. We are researching force majeure clauses, nothing definitive yet, hopefully tomorrow;
  5. Ontario and Quebec are now shut down for all but non-essential services; no idea yet if conveyancing lawyers are essential or not; do not know if or when BC will follow suit;
  6. Nothing concrete about closing the LTSA; just speculation and rumours so far;
  7. There are no incentives (reduction in PTT or anything else) for those that are closing now.

We will continue to do our best to keep you up to date.

Stay healthy.
