People are free to move home, however the process of finding
and moving into a new home is likely to be different, as those involved
in the process will need to adapt
practices and procedures to ensure that the risk of spread of
coronavirus is reduced as far as possible. It is vital that everyone
stays alert and safe.
Initial viewings should be done virtually wherever this is
possible, as an agent we will be providing as many photos as we can and
some video tours to to help you with this.
All physical viewings should be limited to members of the
same household and open house viewings should not take place.
When physically viewing properties, where possible, you
should avoid touching surfaces, wash your hands regularly, and bring
your own hand sanitiser.
The number of people on a viewing should be minimised to
those from your household that absolutely have to be there. (If you need
to be accompanied by small children,
you should try to keep them from touching surfaces and ensure
they wash their hands regularly.)
If people are being shown around your current home, you
should open all internal doors and ensure surfaces, such as door
handles, are cleaned after each viewing
with standard household cleaning products.
We recommend that you vacate your property
whilst viewings are taking place in order to minimise your contact with
those not in your household.
Anyone involved in any aspect of the home
moving process should practice social distancing in line with public
If you are particularly worried about the risk of infection,
then speak to the professionals involved, your landlord, estate agent or
removers as they may be able to put in place extra measures.
1. Preparing to sell or
You can put your home on the market and start to look for
properties you want to move into. If any member of the household is
showing symptoms or is self-isolating
then estate agents should not physically visit the property.
You can begin to market your home and estate agents will be
able to visit in order to take photos/videos of the property.
To help prevent the spread of infection, we encourage people
to do the majority of their property searching online; for example only
physically viewing those properties
which you believe you are most likely to want to move into.
People should use virtual viewings before visiting properties
in person where possible, in order to minimise public health risks. If
any member of either the
household being viewed, or the household undertaking a
viewing is showing symptoms of coronavirus or is self-isolating, then a
physical viewing should be delayed.
All viewings should take place by appointment and only
involve members of a single household.
