Lockdown 2 - We Are Open

The UK Government has voted in favour of a second lockdown across England starting from the 5 November until 2 December.

Under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 which underpins the second national lockdown, estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work.

A statement to the industry, the Government says: “Buying, selling and renting a home can continue, in a covid-secure way, as it has in recent months"

The Regulations specifically state that activities relating to the sector are allowed to continue under Exceptions to leaving home to undertake any of the following activities in connection with the purchase, sale, letting or rental of a residential property:

  • visiting estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes;
  • viewing residential properties to look for a property to buy or to rent;
  • preparing a residential property to move in;
  • moving house;
  • visiting a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property;

In the meantime, we wish you and those closest to you the best of health. Please feel free to contact us with all your property needs.
