Reported today by industry publication, ‘Property Industry Eye’
“Home buyers and renters should, as far as possible, delay moving to a new house while emergency measures are in place to fight coronavirus.”
The Government has said that house moves can, if absolutely unavoidable, go ahead. It has asked membership organisations to disseminate the following message:
“Home buyers and renters should, as far as possible, delay moving to a new house while emergency measures are in place to fight coronavirus.
“If moving is unavoidable for contractual reasons and the parties are unable to reach an agreement to delay, people must follow advice on social distancing to minimise the spread of the virus.
“Anyone with symptoms, self-isolating or shielding from the virus, should follow medical advice and not move house for the time being.”
The statement adds:
- Further guidance will be published on this in due course, but where moves do need to go ahead all individuals involved should take care to follow Government guidance on social distancing and hygiene.
