Thomson Snell & Passmore sees demand for conveyancing soar as lockdown lifted

The team opened 149 new property transaction matters from 13 May to 18 June, compared to 72 from when lockdown started on 23 March to 13 May when restrictions where lifted.

Commenting on the figures, Rebecca Swain, head of conveyancing at Thomson Snell & Passmore says: “Although the property market never really stopped during lockdown, it did slow down and it is great to see that it has picked up significant pace since restrictions were lifted.

“During lockdown we were able to help a number of transactions to either complete or get to a certain point in the process. However, the measures introduced in May to enable viewings again and allow surveyors and valuers to visit properties has really kick-started new transactions.

“There was clearly a lot of pent up demand for property during lockdown and so the amount of activity we have seen over the last month is really encouraging for the property market. It remains to be seen if this upwards trend will continue, but we are hopeful that it will.”
