Covid-19 Update For London Property
27th October 2020
27th October 2020
As the Coronavirus Pandemic continues, we understand that it may be confusing for home movers in London, whether buying, selling or renting.
New measures are being introduced regularly, including the new three-tier system currently being rolled out in an attempt to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
These measures are based on a system aimed at simplifying restrictions and to enable local lockdowns to be put in place depending on Coronavirus infections per region.
New advice released by the Government allows estate agents to remain open and property viewings to take place.
However, there are strict rules for viewings and social distancing guidelines in place for physical viewings, along with the stringent requirement for PPE to be worn to minimise health risks and to ensure the safety of our clients and staff at all times.
London is currently in Tier 2.
How do the three tiers apply to you if you are moving home?
Tier 1: Medium Alert
Tier 2: High Alert
Tier Two rules are the same as Tier One, with the following additional rule:
It’s important to note that in-person property viewings can still go ahead, with the appropriate precautions in place.
Tier 3: Very High Alert
Tier Three is for areas where the transmission rates of Covid-19 are very concerning.
Government guidelines have not banned property viewings in Tier Three regions. However, home movers will likely choose not to view properties while restrictions are in place.
We will be strictly adhering to all Government guidelines relevant to East & North London and the safety of our clients and staff is paramount. This means that you can still place your property on the market or for rent with us and look for properties you want to move to.
Viewings, Valuations, Inspections, Surveys and Removals
As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, our foremost concern is to keep clients and staff safe.
We are here to help and support all our clients, and we hope you, your friends and family remain safe and healthy for the duration of COVID-19.
