Conveyancing market reopens

House moves and viewings have resumed in England from today, Wednesday 13 May, under new UK government coronavirus rules.

The changes were contained in the updated lockdown regulations presented to Parliament on Tuesday.

Buyers and renters had previously been told to delay moving while the stay at home advice was in place.

Under the new lockdown regulations put in place by the government, moving home and visiting estate agents and letting agents, will now be allowed again.

Potential buyers and renters are now also allowed to visit show homes and view houses on the market to let or buy.

Anyone who has already bought a new home can now visit it to prepare it for moving in.

Nicola Bennell, Solicitor and Head of Conveyancing at Richard Reed commented “the Government have produced a step by step plan to ensure people can view properties and move home whilst still adhering to social distancing rules to keep them and others safe.

Nicola went on to say “Many of our clients had to put their moves on hold due to the lockdown. Despite this, we’ve been working hard on their behalf to ensure their property sales and/or purchase transactions could quickly progress to completion as soon as the property market reopened.
