The Partridge & Wilson office at 88 Guildhall Street, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 1PT has closed and we have been joined by a number of former Partridge & Wilson partners and staff, operating from our premises at Collingwood House, 20 Whiting Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1NX.
Wills, Deeds and other documents have been transferred to our safekeeping.
We began the process of writing to clients for whom documents were transferred into our care, but cancelled doing so further after receiving several calls from clients who were concerned that, had they moved, the letter might breach their privacy and potentially enable fraudulent withdrawals of deeds and documents.
We did however place several notices and adverts in the local press and updated those online listings to which we had access, so that searches for Partridge & Wilson were directed to us and our website.
The Partridge and Wilson website at www.partridgeandwilson.co.uk automatically redirects visitors to this page on our website.
Postal mail was forwarded mail for the maximum period permitted by Royal Mail.
We have maintained the Partridge & Wilson telephone number of 01284 762281 which has an automated message directed callers to our telephone number.
In the circumstances therefore we believe that we are doing all that we reasonably can do to help clients find us while at the same time not putting their personal information and important documents at risk.
Clients seeking reassurance that we are holding their documents are invited to contact us.
