Coronavirus Lockdown 2 – We Can Do More than Lockdown 1!


As England braces itself for a second National lockdown on Thursday 5th November, there are many questions about what we can and can’t do when compared to the first lockdown in March 2020.

Some of the things we know so far:

  • People can still move house, with estate agents, removal firms, construction companies all being allowed to continue working in a Covid Secure manner.
  • The Courts will remain open meaning that hearings can still proceed, albeit now likely by way of remote hearings except in exceptional circumstances.
  • Everyone “who can work effectively from home must do so. Where people cannot do so they should continue to travel to work/attend their workplace”. 
  • Schools, colleges and universities are all still open- a major difference to the first lockdown.
  • Childminders and nurseries will stay open and childcare bubbles, where for example a grandparent provides childcare while a parent works, will be able to continue.
  • Playgrounds and parks will remain open

It is clear that this second lockdown does not impact on as many areas of our lives as the first lockdown.

What financial support is available this time?

  • The Furlough Scheme has been extended for a further month and pays 80% of salary/wages up to a limit of £2,500, although employers must still pay NI contributions and pension contributions
  • Business premises forced to close under this lockdown may be eligible for grants of up to £3,000 
  • The availability of mortgage holidays has been extended and this may extend to repayments of other debts, but that remains to be confirmed

We will update this page as and when further clarification is available.

Coronavirus Lockdown Update- Can we move house yet?


Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday that some of the restrictions in place will gradually be eased, there was still some confusion as to what we can now do as well as what we are still not allowed to do.

Clarification has now been released expressly confirming that people can move house as well as confirming that estate agents can open and conduct viewings and place new properties on the market, as long as social distancing measures can be put in place.

This should be a huge relief to those people that were part way through a property transaction but were unable to complete due to the lockdown.

Our conveyancing team are on hand to advise and assist you with your sale or purchase. If you would like to obtain a quote for our services, please click on the link below and fill in our quote request form.

Our office is still open to clients but we understand that you may not want to or can’t venture outside at the moment if you are self-isolating, so we are offering telephone and video call appointments to discuss your needs and take instructions.  We can discuss how to validly sign the Will and can store the Will for free in our fireproof safe.

      New Year Resolution #01: Make a Will


      Rachel Ison, a Solicitor in Pearcelegal’s Private Client department explains why making a Will should be one of your New Year’s Resolutions.

      We all like to make New Year Resolutions whether they be saving money, getting fit or losing some Christmas weight although, let’s face it, most of these promises don’t last longer than a few weeks!

      One promise you can keep that is inexpensive and will last a lot longer than a fad diet is to make a Will. Everyone should have one but it’s just something we never get around to doing, so make it one of your resolutions for 2020.

      Why do I need to make a Will?

      Staggeringly, a 2018 Which survey showed that 54% of UK adults still don’t have a Will. Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are followed regarding funeral plans, what happens to your money and property and who has guardianship of your children if they are under 18 when you die. You can choose who you would like to inherit your money and assets and make specific bequests and donations to family members or charities.

      What happens to my money if I don’t make a Will?

      If you die without making a Will you are deemed to have died intestate. Your money and property would be divided up under the Rules of Intestacy whereby family members who would benefit are put in a strict order. This means that your estate could be distributed in a way that you would not have chosen.  There may also be tax implications that could have been avoided through a considered and properly drafted Will.

      To arrange an initial appointment with Rachel, please contact her on 0121 347 6214 or email her at

      If you book an appointment during January 2020 you will be able to take advantage of our discounted rates – see our offer here.

      Breaking up at Christmas


      As Andy Williams will be singing repeatedly over this festive period- It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

      Unfortunately this will not be the case for many people.  The pressure to deliver the ‘perfect’ Christmas is difficult enough at the best of times.  If you have been struggling in your relationship, it can be even harder to ‘paper over the cracks’ particularly if the efforts put into Christmas go unnoticed or unappreciated.

      Maybe the decision to break up has already been made, but you have decided not to take any action until after Christmas.

      Whatever the situation, knowing what your rights would be on separation or divorce is a vital first step in the process.  There is so much conflicting information regarding divorce and separation on the internet and much of it is based on specific circumstances and may not be relevant to your situation.  Much of the information is also ‘myth’ or just plain wrong.

      Here at Pearcelegal, we offer a free initial meeting with one of our Solicitors to discuss your particular situation and can provide more focussed and relevant advice so that you can properly consider your rights and decide with confidence how and when to start the process.  

      To book your free initial appointment, please call us on 0121 270 2700 or complete our online contact form by clicking Free Divorce Consultation
