In compliance with recent Government restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 “Lockdown”, Ussher Lawyers are working remotely until further notice.
Please rest assured we are still able to carry out certain legal services on your behalf via digital means such as Skype, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts or other video-conferencing applications.
Property purchases, sales, and refinancing
We can complete property purchases, sales and re-financing for you. LINZ (Land Information New Zealand) is still operating. You should download Skype, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts or any other video-conferencing application. Ideally you should have access to a printer so that you can print and sign the necessary documents in front of us and then scan them back to us. We will witness your signature via one of these applications. If you don’t have a printer and scanner get in contact and we can arrange alternatives. There are plenty available.
Wills, Estates, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Affidavits and Statutory Declarations
There are ways that we can achieve all of these lawfully within the Covid-19 Alert Level 4 “Lockdown”. However, the methods are all more cumbersome and onerous than usual. If you need any of these completed please get in touch.
Should you need to contact us you can reach us on 07 865 8824. You will be diverted to our cell-phones by selecting the extension number of the person you need to talk to.
This is an unsettling and uncertain time for all New Zealanders but it is reassuring to know that we are all taking the best measures possible in order to contain the COVID-19 virus. Take extra care of yourselves, your friends and families and we look forward to resuming normal practice and meeting with you face to face once again soon.
