Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
If the owners are saying that they cannot fly to HK because of covid19 travel restrictions in the UK, then they are incorrect. Travel is permitted if it is to deal with property transactions etc. That is one of the current exemptions to allow for overseas travel.
If they do not what to travel, then it should be possible to arrange a power of attorney and sign documents to allow a lawyer in either country to act on their behalf.
Sorry, I would not be able to act for them.
Unfortunately I do not recommend any particular firm. But any good conveying firm could arrange and deal with this.
I have attached a ling to the Law society where you would be Abel to make a search for a firm. https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/?Pro=True
