At the Law Office of Joseph C. Lane, we have been able to complete many real estate transactions while reducing the spread of coronavirus successfully and safely. Our clients have commented on the comfort and ease of the process – so we wanted to share this information with others. Below are just some of the extensive measures we are currently implementing.
Virtual When Possible
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, meeting in person for conversations or other steps in the transaction was never a second thought. However, now we must reduce the number of in-person meetings as much as possible. We are fully capable to conduct all parts of the transaction, that do not require meeting in person, in a virtual setting.
Office Building Precautions
We have worked with the office building to ensure every person who walks through our door feels safe and comfortable. First, masks are required for both employees and guests to enter the building. Second, the reception desk is equipped with a plexi-glass shield to allow for a safe conversation with all employees and clients. Third, any shared surfaces are regularly and properly disinfected.
Many additional sanitation processes have been implemented to ensure the room, all surfaces, and other items (i.e. pens) are properly disinfected. Our schedule has a mandatory, 30-minute window in between meetings for this disinfecting process. This window provides us with more than enough time to properly disinfect everything prior to the beginning of our next appointment.
During some parts of the transaction, it is nearly impossible to keep a 6-foot social distance. Considering this, we have a custom-built plexiglass divider that effectively divides up to 4 separate parties. This divider also has small openings to allow individuals to pass documents to one another. Each section includes an individual bottle of hand sanitizer to use before and after handling these documents.
Thanks to these precautions, we have been able to continue providing the same high-quality legal services we are known for in a safe fashion. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, would like to schedule an appointment, or would like to meet in a different fashion. We are looking forward to speaking with you!
