13th May 2020
House moves and viewings will be able to resume again in England from Wednesday, under new UK government coronavirus rules. The changes were contained in the updated lockdown regulations presented to Parliament on Tuesday.
Parker Hall we shortly be issuing our safety protocols to all vendors and any viewers will also be asked to confirm they comply with certain safety restrictions before their appointment is arranged.
Under the new lockdown regulations tabled by the government, moving home will be allowed again, as will visiting estate agents and letting agents. Potential buyers and renters will also be allowed to visit show homes and view houses on the market to let or buy. Anyone who has already bought a new home will be able to visit it to prepare it for moving in.
Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said those "waiting patiently to move can now do so" as long as it is carried out under social distancing and safety rules. Mr Jenrick said the government's "step-by-step plan" will enable people "to move home safely, covering each aspect of the sales and letting process, from viewings to removals".
