COVID-19: Government guidance on moving house

Moving house COVID-19

Latest Government guidance on moving house during the COVID-19 pandemic

On 26th March the Government provided guidance to home buyers and sellers on moving house during the current pandemic. You can read the full statement here.

This is a worrying time for anyone in the midst of buying or selling a property and the guidance provides helpful advice. Key points include:

  • * If the property being bought is empty, the move can continue as normal if it can be done safely
  • * If the property is occupied, all parties are encouraged to agree on alternatives dates
  • * If a new date cannot be agreed, critical home moves can still take place if they can be done safely
  • * Anyone with symptoms, self isolating or shielding should follow medical advice which will mean not moving house for the time being
