New year – new lock down

The UK Government has announced a third Lock Down with similar restrictions on movement and on businesses as in March last year. In England, the housing market remains open, you can buy and sell, let and rent and estate agents can remain open and operational. Some things will be difficult, conveyancing, valuations, surveys.. there will all be more complicated to arrange and so people should expect transactions to take longer.

Once again I am running my free, 30 minute Covid Clinics. If you have a question about buying or selling, renting or letting then please get in touch and we can arrange a convenient time to FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or just to call.

The rules in Scotland are similar.

In Wales the advice is “try not to move unless you absolutely must” and in Northern Ireland the rules are currently as they were on 26th December.
