In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is having to adjust and find new and creative ways to accomplish tasks while keeping everyone safe. Law firms are no different. Our clients’ and employees’ health are our top priority; therefore, in an effort to follow the CDC recommendations and guidelines we have established “drive-up” real estate closings. We have set up a tent with a table and chairs in front of our office. It’s BYOP. Bring your own pen or use one of ours from a new box and take it with you! The table and chairs are sanitized before and after each use.
We schedule zoom conferences with client where the attorney will review all of the documents with the clients and answer any questions. Then, the clients will drive to our office and complete the signing at our drive-up closing table.
We know that a real estate closing is supposed to be a celebratory event and we apologize that we currently have to implement this process, but we want to keep everyone safe!
