Big Bounce Back In Property Cases For Taylor&Emmet

2nd June 2020

The residential conveyancing team at Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP has seen a dramatic upswing in activity since the property sector was released from lockdown.

In the last two weeks of May, the department completed in excess of 120 property sales and purchases for clients who had waited patiently for restrictions to ease.

During the same period, 59 web enquiries regarding new transactions were received, compared to 33 in the whole month of May last year, an increase of 78% in half the time.

Neil Riley, head of conveyancing at Taylor&Emmet, said:

“Our department was working incredibly hard during lockdown to progress ongoing property transactions as far as possible, so we had many clients ready to move when the government gave us the green light. In the days since restrictions eased, we have seen increasing numbers of existing and new clients contacting us, eager to resume or begin their house moving journey.”

Taylor&Emmet’s conveyancing team is the largest in Sheffield, generating 40% of the firm’s overall income. It receives consistently positive feedback from clients and was recently recognised by Countrywide as the best in the country for customer experience and service.

Neil added:

“It is a little early to say it is ‘business as usual’, as everyone involved in the house buying and selling process needs to make their part of the transaction Covid-secure. For now, our offices remain closed to visitors, but we are fully operational and equipped to work from home, progressing and dealing with transactions, right up to completion.”
