Following the Government announcement on Saturday evening of a second lockdown later this week.
Whilst not covered in the Prime Ministers broadcast, it has since been confirmed by Housing Secretary, Robert Jenrick, that the property market will remain open throughout the 4 week lockdown period.
The guidance on viewings and progressing sales put in place over the last few months remains applicable. These can be found here
Please note that for viewings the guidance includes:
• Only 2 households allowed in the property and we as your agent as classed as one household. Please therefore ensure you are not in the property when a viewing is booked in. You can be in the garden but clearly now the weather has changed you may wish to make other arrangements whilst we are conducting the viewing.
• Before you leave your property, please open all your internal doors and cupboards
• We will use gloves when conducting viewings and be requesting everyone refrains from touching surfaces etc.
If you have any queries please call but in the meanwhile we will continue to do what we can to assist your property move and will continue to be in regular contact going forward.
