Government advice for movers during coronavirus pandemic...

The Government has advised both buyers and sellers alike to be flexible during these unprecended times.

No need to pull out of sales but to agree with the purchaser a suitable time following lockdown guidance.

The Government’s advice on house moves:

“Given the situation in the UK with regard to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), we urge parties involved in home moving to adapt and be flexible to alter their usual processes.

“There is no need to pull out of transactions, but we all need to ensure we are following guidance to stay at home and away from others at all times, including the specific measures for those who are presenting symptoms, self-isolating or shielding. Prioritising the health of individuals and the public must be the priority.

“Where the property being moved into is vacant, then you can continue with this transaction although you should follow the guidance on home removals.

“Where the property is currently occupied, we encourage all parties to do all they can to amicably agree alternative dates to move, for a time when it is likely that stay-at-home measures against coronavirus (COVID-19) will no longer be in place.”

We are following Government advice during the pandemic.  Stay home stay safe and we will be here for you after the lockdown lifted...
