We will update our information regularly as per instructions from the Government.
As of today, 13 May 2020, some important amendments that alter the travel restrictions previously applied have come into force.
People will now be allowed to travel in order to visit an estate agent or letting agent, developer sales office or show home, view residential properties to buy or rent, prepare residential properties in order to move in, move home, and visit a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property.
With that in mind as well as the Prime Ministers instruction to those who cannot work from home to return to work if they can, we are of the view that more Estate Agencies will be opening up for business in the coming days.
The Housing Minister in his statement announcing the guidelines advised that a clear plan will be provided to enable the safety of everybody involved from viewings to removals. He further specifically stated that anyone who has been waiting to move can now do so, which is good news for everyone who has had to place their transaction on hold.
We will be updating this post as more information becomes available.
