No doubt you will have read media headlines that have talked about “suspend the housing market” which we know will be extremely unsettling for you.
However, we should point out that the government has been clear that there is no need to pull out of transactions and we will continue to help you move towards exchange.
If the property you are buying is empty, then completion can go ahead as normal, obviously following government guidance about social distancing and safety. Where the property is occupied, we will work towards agreeing alternative dates for you to move, for a time when it is likely that stay-at-home measures against COVID-19 will no longer be in place.
Please be assured that we are here to help you and if you have any concerns at all, please get in touch.
Peter Ambrose, Managing Director
