Closing Concerns During COVID-19

In times like these with measures we have not yet seen you are probably wondering how safe your transaction is. What if the BC government follows Ontario and Quebec for instance, shutting down all but essential services. Will your lawyer still be able to close the sale? Will your Realtor still be able to facilitate showings and in-person duties necessary to complete a transaction? It seems the answer is yes, according to BC’s list of essential services. So it is unlikely we’ll find ourselves in a situation where your closing is put at risk directly because of a government ordered lockdown. Certainly we continue to hope that everyone takes the social distancing measure seriously and authorities are not forced to take it this far. Stay safe everyone! Stay home when you can.
