    I spoke to our solicitor and they said they were continuing as normal all working from home sorting out contracts etc, it was 2 weeks ago and she said that they were expecting the portal for searches to be switched off as the local councils would be deals with rate and council tax relief due to corona for the new tax few weeks however we submitted ours while it was still open. Once lockdown is done things will carry on but the banks could delay things as so busy sorting mortgage holidays etc

    Solicitors are dependent on third parties. Councils like everyone else won't be working at capacity. Searches can take some weeks to come through.
