Viewing and moving house is now allowed

As lockdown measures are being eased across England, buyers and renters can now view properties in person and move home.

When the lockdown began on 23 March, it was an unprecedented step to limit the spread of coronavirus. At that time, strict restrictions on the property market were imposed, causing many homeowners to wait anxiously for the pandemic to be contained quickly. Today, as lockdown measures are being eased across England, we can finally report that viewings and house moves are now allowed.

Property market to restart

Sellers, buyers, landlords and renters can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the property market is now allowed to operate from today.

What it means is that you can now view properties in person – although you must still follow strict social distancing measures when carrying out viewings.

It also means that hundreds of thousands of homeowners and buyers can now resume the delayed transactions.

The sale of a property requires a conveyancer to transfer the legal title. Our conveyancing team has been and still continue to assist clients without face-to-face appointments.
