Cooke Curtis & Co are currently open for business, but working from home on reduced staff. Website enquiries, office phone numbers and emails should be answered as normal. If your call goes unanswered we’re probably on the other line.
We live nearby so with some notice we can open the office if something physical is required, for example to collect keys for essential repairs. We have processes in place to ensure any visits are handled safely. Whilst government advice permits we will also visit the office regularly to collect post.
We are unable to carry out physical viewings at properties but are working to provide video tours where we can.
We can provide remote valuations by video using WhatsApp, Facetime or similar.
We continue to work with solicitors, mortgage advisors and lenders to progress sales that are already agreed. Current government advice is that sales can complete and you can move house, with appropriate precautions, if necessary.
We are here for our buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants as much as we can safely be.
