What to expect if you are moving home during COVID-19: Updated May 26th 2020
Subject to strict government guidelines, property sales and rentals can now restart following the easing of some travel restrictions. This is great news for those wishing to move home, “It’s also a step to reinvigorating the housing market and will be a boost to the economy,” say David Cox, Chief Executive of ARLA Propertymark and Mark Hayward, Chief Executive of NAEA Propertymark in a joint statement. The new regulations allow the public to view properties for sale or rent and to prepare properties prior to moving. Agents are also allowed to visit properties to carry out valuations, take photos and video, prepare floorplans, EPCs etc to prepare the property for sale or let.
However, safety remains paramount, for both our clients and our staff, so we have produced a set of guidelines and advice to ensure that we can operate safely, keeping our clients, customers and staff well-being our top priority.
These guidelines will help you to understand what you will need to do to move home safely. Our protocols adhere to (and in some instances go further than) Government advice on home moving during the Covid-19 outbreak. And, as legislation changes, this guide will be updated.
We appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation as we adapt to these new ways of working and, as ever, we are 100% committed to helping you with your move.
