Property Settlements in the Midst of a Pandemic
The pandemic continues to hold a firm grip on the world and has impacted all of our lives in significant ways. While we all personally do our part to help curb the spread of coronavirus through the use of masks, sanitizers and social distancing, the pandemic is mostly out of our control; and so we must adapt.
Companies must also adapt; and they have. Restaurants now offer curbside pickup or even delivery. Many companies have switched to remote working and healthcare has seen a significant shift to telemedicine. Real estate and the various industries that it involves have also found ways to adapt.
What We Are Doing to Help Our Clients During the Pandemic
Principle Abstract has taken several measures over these past few months to not only help facilitate the closing of real estate transactions, but to also ensure that everyone involved are as safe and comfortable as possible.
Drive Through Settlements
Over the past several months, we have helped dozens of clients close from the comfort of their own vehicles. Clients remain in their cars as paperwork is passed through the windows, where documents are then signed and processed in an organized and seamless process.
We have also performed dozens of settlements in an outdoor space, such as a park, so long as weather permits. The present parties can either sit or stand at a table and process the paperwork in a comfortable, open-air setting.
Driveway / Garage Closings
If agreed to, the property location itself is a viable option for closings. We’ve performed many closings right in the driveway or in an open garage, allowing for plenty of space with adequate airflow to keep all parties safe. This option has been quite convenient, particularly for moving day closings and can save a lot of time and travel for everyone involved.
We continue to offer our office as a location for settlement. Of course, all recommended precautions are taken to ensure a safe visit to our office, including face masks, hand sanitizers and frequent office disinfection.
No one was handed a manual on how to deal with or thrive in the midst of a global pandemic. Yet so many people and companies have done an admirable job to learn and adapt to our current realities. This is particularly true for industries where little can be done. Principle Abstract is proud to count itself among the companies that have embraced these necessary changes from the onset to ensure that our clients are both safe and comfortable.
