The sun is shining outside (or at least was earlier in the week!), and after a very unusual last few months we are now back in our office as opposed to working from our bedrooms or gardens!

The whole team at Christopher Shaw gradually returned to the office from mid-July - where we have been re-adjusting our space to meet social distancing and government advice.

It is good to be back though and we have seen really encouraging signs in both the rental and sales market. The rental market in particular continues its bumper summer as demand surged following the end of the national lockdown.

Please see our latest video from Matt & James on being back in the office, the market, Stamp Duty changes, and EICR feedback.....
