We are committed to continuing to work through this time where possible, but will only do so in accordance with current restrictions and Government advice, and when safe to do so. We take our responsibility to minimise the spread of Coronavirus extremely seriously.
Updated guidance on 10 May 2020 to encourage those unable to work from home to go back to work has not affected the way we are working, and we will continue to monitor advise on a daily basis, adapting our working procedures and activities when we need to, to ensure we are compliant with current advice.
We are continuing to effect service of all legal process at this time.
Current Government advice can be found here
We have advised our process servers to adhere to social distancing rules, and keep enquiries at properties other than the service address to a minimum at this time. They are of course advised not to work if they have any symptoms, or any members of their household are self-isolating.
We are aware of directives from the Leeds District Registry in relation to the service of Winding Up Petitions, and the extra measures to take, where businesses are closed due to Covid19. We are discussing individuals cases directly with clients where we believe they are affected.
We are currently maintaining good overall coverage, but are experiencing some delays, and may have trouble sourcing agents in some of the more rural areas. We will of course advise if you any of your serves are greatly affected in this regard.
As always, you will continue to be able to speak with our team throughout this crisis on our usual numbers and email addresses.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP: Where possible please instruct matters by email and not with original paperwork. We are still receiving instructions through post and DX though, so you can continue to send originals if you need to.
Finally, we are here to help our clients any way we can. Our office team are currently all home working, but we can still assist with printing, posting etc for you, and have the structure to facilitate this from home. Just ask if you think we might be able to help with something which is usually out of our remit - we're all in this together and will get through it together!
