What Does Lockdown Mean For Legal Services?

With a new national lockdown in place across England, as you can imagine this has had an impact on what legal services and lawyers can do. It is good news for most, as legal service providers can still work. They are asked to work from home where possible, but they are able to see you in either home or a work office if necessary. If you do need to meet in a place of work you will need to ensure the workplace is covid secure. For those moving house, this is still possible, with all paperwork being able to be completed digitally. For any services which will require the court, this is still possible but should be avoided if possible. If you are asked to attend court for any reason it is acceptable for you to leave home for this service. All legal services are able to continue, however, these should be completed virtually when possible.
