According to the BBC, restrictions around property viewings and transactions are to be lifted today.
At 19.30 yesterday evening the BBC published an article stating that the Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick is expected to announce that the housing market in England can resume. They also went onto say it will mean estate and letting agents can return to work.
The report is based on a Government document called Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations 2020 which came out this evening.
All of what follows will be subject to strict social distancing rules which we will adhere to.
It states that people can visit estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes.
They can view residential properties to look for a property to buy or rent.
People can prepare a residential property to move in or move out.
Valuations and property inspections are now allowed.
Of course, the news has been well received by all at Athelstans as we have many people wanting to buy, sell move and rent new properties.
We’re expecting a surge of property enquiries from people looking to move and we’ve been getting prepared for this moment since the lockdown began.
We have our clean protocol in place, PPE at the ready and we’re itching to help people in Launceston get moving.
But amid that excitement we also know we have a weight of responsibility above our roles as estate agents.
And that is to practice social distancing properly, follow the Government’s health and safety guidelines and ultimately look after the wellbeing of our clients, our team and our community.
We’ll be on hand from 09.00 tomorrow to answer any of your questions.
