New official guidance - What agents can do in lockdown

Residential News | Wed 04 Nov 2020

Subject to approval by a vote in Parliament this evening, the regulations specifically state that activities relating to the sector are allowed to continue under ‘Exceptions To Leaving Home’. 

The regulations, released to the industry last evening, say individuals may leave home… 

…to undertake any of the following activities in connection with the purchase, sale, letting or rental of a residential property—

(i) visiting estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes;

(ii) viewing residential properties to look for a property to buy or to rent;

(iii) preparing a residential property to move in;

(iv) moving house;

(v) visiting a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property.

This clears up once and for all some of the uncertainties which until now have dogged industry preparations for the second lockdown, which will go on from tomorrow until December 2.

Timothy Douglas, Propertymark’s policy and communications manager, says: “Following the laying of regulations for national lockdown measures in England we are very pleased that the hard work of our members and the importance of the property sector has been recognised with exceptions in the rules for home moves as well as visits to branches and allowing agents to visit property to undertake any required activities.
