Government advice on home moving

If you are currently in the process of buying and/or selling a home, the Government has issued some advice.

They have advised that there is no need to pull out of transactions but remind us that we all need to ensure we are following guidance to stay at home and away from others at all times. Where the property being moved into is vacant (such as a new build), then you can continue with the transaction - as long as you follow the guidance on home removals:

  • Removers should honour their existing commitments where it is clear that the move can be done safely for the client and your own staff and it is clear that the moving date cannot be moved.

  • Removers should follow the latest Government guidance which currently (26 March 2020) states that work carried out in people‚Äôs homes can continue, provided the tradesperson is well and has no symptoms or coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is important to ensure Government guidelines are followed, including maintaining a 2 metre distance from others, and washing their hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds (or using hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available).

No work should be carried out by a person who has coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, however mild.

Information is constantly updating. The official Government guidance on home moving can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/government-advice-on-home-moving-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak
