What Will ‘Lockdown 2’ Mean for People Moving Home?

There’s been considerable uncertainty around exactly what can be done by movers in the housing market under the Government’s latest Covid related lockdown, taking effect from today (November 5, 2020).

Although not all the detail is outlined, a tweet from the Housing Secretary last weekend, Robert Jenrick, immediately after the lockdown announcement, made it clear that ‘the housing market will remain open throughout this period. Everyone should continue to play their part in reducing the spread of the virus by following the current guidance'. He added that everyone will need to follow social distancing guidance already published.

With regards to estate agents, viewings will be carried out only when a client has a genuine interest in a property and is in a position to proceed, with only one household being present. Masks and other safety precautions will continue to be mandatory. A similar situation

With the stamp duty holiday ending on March 31, 2021, buyers and sellers won’t want to lose valuable time or lose the property they have set their heart on.

There is clearly going to be disruption and a need to do things differently, but here at Merewood Financial Services, we’ll do our very best to help clients in every way we can.

Stay well, stay safe, and we'll see each other soon!
