Shar­ing the bur­den of mov­ing

EDP Norfolk - - Law - Steven Clarke direc­tor of con­veyanc­ing at Rogers and Nor­ton

ROGERS and Nor­ton have un­veiled a joint scheme with Age UK Nor­folk sup­port­ing older peo­ple in the county who are think­ing of mov­ing, down­siz­ing or con­tem­plat­ing a move into a re­tire­ment home, with spe­cial­ist le­gal ser­vices.

Mov­ing home can be a daunt­ing and stress­ful prospect, what­ever age you are, but it can be com­pounded if you have lived in your home for many years and it is filled with many mem­o­ries, and un­told pos­ses­sions. It’s im­por­tant to have the peace of mind and re­as­sur­ance and Age UK Nor­folk, with the back­ing and full sup­port of Rogers and Nor­ton, will pro­vide the nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion, ad­vice and prac­ti­cal sup­port to guide clients through the re­lo­ca­tion to help to ease some of that anx­i­ety.

We have a team of spe­cial­ist lawyers who will be per­son­ally re­spon­si­ble for help­ing sup­port clients through the trans­ac­tion. They will ar­range an ini­tial home visit to in­tro­duce them­selves and to ex­plain what is go­ing to hap­pen and why. They can also ex­plain what forms need to be com­pleted and help fill them in if re­quired and pro­vide weekly up­dates on the progress of the trans­ac­tion.

The con­veyanc­ing teams at our of­fices in Nor­wich and At­tle­bor­ough are acutely aware of how dif­fi­cult the up­heaval can be when mov­ing home in later life. We thought we could help al­le­vi­ate the stress in­volved by of­fer­ing a be­spoke ser­vice to Age UK Nor­folk and the older peo­ple they sup­port.

We’ve pro­duced a timetable of what a home mover needs to do and when, to­gether with a change of ad­dress check­list, to help guide our clients through the trans­ac­tion. In many in­stances it is quite some time since peo­ple last moved home and many things have been added to the list of jobs that need do­ing. There are a con­sid­er­able num­ber of ac­tions that have to be care­fully planned to help the move flow smoothly; we want to be able to sup­port clients through the process by main­tain­ing clear and prompt com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels.

Our ex­pe­ri­enced teams have the skill sets to deal with a wide va­ri­ety of trans­ac­tions from land pur­chase and new build through to sales and pur­chases and equity re­lease. The team works closely with our pri­vate client depart­ment who can pro­vide ad­vice on wills, trusts and last­ing pow­ers of at­tor­ney.
