We remain open for business as usual between 9am and 5:30pm and are here to help you during these challenging times. We have implemented special measures to maintain social distancing between staff and any visitors.
The property market remains open. Extra measures remain in place to ensure that we continue to follow Government guidelines. Some of these measures include operating on an appointment only basis. It is clear that the country faces another challenging period, however, as a business we have learned a great deal since 23 March and are confident that we are able to continue to support our clients, whilst ensuring that your safety and the safety of our staff remains our priority. Client care continues to be at the heart of what we do.
These are unsettling and unprecedented times for us all, but you can rely on the fact that Engleharts will be here to help you when you need it most. Whether you require assistance with either a Commercial or Residential Property matter, a Will, Lasting Power of Attorney, Probate or any other Private Client matter or an Employment or Litigation matter, our expert team is here to assist.
On all Residential and Commercial Property transactions, we are working hard with clients to make sure that their transactions proceed. As long as we all work within Government guidelines, transactions can proceed speedily and with all the usual care that we dedicate to all our clients’ matters.

NOTICE: Coronavirus (COVID 19) as at 15.00 on 15 January 2021
We will continue to be available to accept new instructions in all areas of work on an ongoing basis. We are taking the following precautionary measures to protect our staff and clients:
In these difficult and unusual times, it is our preference that, certainly for the time being, clients do not visit our offices. We recognise, however, that exceptional or emergency circumstances may arise. In the event of any visit, please try to limit any attendance time at our offices and visit by appointment only if absolutely required and previously agreed with the fee earner who is dealing with your matter. Meetings on our premises must be arranged by prior appointment. In order to protect our staff, clients and visitors, we ask anyone visiting the office to wear a mask in accordance with the latest UK Government guidelines, unless exempted from doing so. We ask all visitors to maintain social distancing in accordance with current UK Government guidelines and to ensure high standards of hygiene by hand washing and regularly using the hand-sanitiser available throughout the office. We ask you to post documents and letters through the front door or through normal postal routes.
If you have or have had a temperature or a continuous cough, or suffer from anosmia (this is the loss of or a change in your normal sense of smell or sense of taste), or if you have been in contact with anyone who has these symptoms, or have any other symptoms of COVID-19 as further detailed on the NHS website found here, please do not visit our offices at present. Ideally, as many appointments as possible will take place by telephone or an internet platform.
If you do attend for an appointment, you will appreciate that in accordance with UK Government guidelines we will ask you to stand 2 metres (6.6 feet) back from our Reception desk. Please wash your hands on arrival and/or utilise the available hand sanitiser gel in our Reception. As per Government advice; ‘You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms’.
We would ask you to try to communicate with us via the medium of email rather than post wherever possible.
Our phone lines will remain open as usual between 9.00am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
We hope that you understand these measures are precautionary and thank you for your assistance and co-operation.
