As you are well aware the COVID-19 virus is affecting our lives and how we work.
Our COVID-19 protocol consists of all the usual applications of anti-viral cleanliness, mandatory masks while in our offices, and also includes utilization of technology to limit direct contact with clients. Email, faxing and DocuSign are just a few of the electronic processes we will utilize whenever practicable. We are also monitoring new developments regarding COVID-19 closely and we follow best practices to ensure that our offices are a clean and safe environment for all, and we have been proactive in implementing additional measures focused on the safety of our people, clients, and guests, continuing to adapt as circumstances change. Our approach has been informed by the guidance of governmental agencies and public health officials.
If you are purchasing or selling property during this time, we will continue to close real estate transactions using our COVID-19 protocol and Stewart Title gap insurance if necessary.
Stewart Title gap insurance is coverage that insures both purchasers and lenders against losses due to intervening registrations on title between the date of closing and the date of registration. This means that in the event that online registration is no longer available, or land registry offices experience delays or closures due to COVID-19, transactions can close on time and funds and keys can be released to the respective parties.
We are a small law firm of 4 persons and therefore have already endeavoured to limit our contact with the community. However despite our size our strength is found in our skills and we will continue to provide our reliable experience and services to our community during this time.
