Millions across the UK are now working from home following the government directive to Stay At Home a week ago. With no sign that restrictions are going to be lifted in the short term some may be finding this a challenge. So here are some tips for making your home work for you. With developments in technology it’s increasingly easy to work from home and there are many innovative ways to create your own home office if you think outside the box.

If your property is already tenanted you may have concerns about day to day issues and how we can help in the current situation and within government guidelines. Fully managed tenants can continue to report issues and will receive essential maintenance as before, so long as our contractors can safely enter the property. Emergency issues will obviously be prioritised. If contractors cannot safely access the property, due to tenants self-isolating for instance, we will arrange access as soon as it becomes possible. Communication is key to this and our staff are available to discuss any queries by phone or email.

Whilst we will not be physically in our offices until government restrictions are lifted, it is very much business as usual (appointments aside) and we continue to offer a professional service for our vendors and buyers, landlords and tenants. You can also register your requirements or interest in specific properties. Just call your local Frost office or email us in the normal way and we will answer any property questions you may have with up to date guidance and professional advice in this rapidly changing scenario.

Following much debate, government advice on home moving during the COVID 19 crisis was issued last night. As things stand, there is NO need to pull out of transactions, but we must all follow the government’s guidance on staying at home /self-distancing and stick to the rules for those with symptoms, self-isolating or shielding. Everyone’s health must be THE number one priority.

Should you find yourself with time on your hands, having been advised to stay at home, you may be thinking it is time to get outside! It may not feel like it just now, but spring is here and the days are set to get warmer and the evenings lighter. Fresh air and exercise can help you to stay healthy and an hour or so in the garden offers both. It might be the right time to think about getting your garden ready for summer and making it a peaceful place to relax when warmer weather arrives.

With blossom flowering, spring is in the air and it’s an exciting time for homeowners; an ideal time to think about selling or letting and planning your next move. We have seen a flurry of activity in the property market with more properties coming to the market. Increased economic confidence is renewing interest in the property market and both buyers and sellers are seeing this as a good time to move especially while interest rates are still relatively low and a shortage of property in the UK maintains a high level of demand. First time buyers in particular are enjoying record low interest rates and incentives to purchase and it is a good time to get their first foot on the property ladder.
