A special news bulletin
According to an estate agency news website, restrictions around property viewings and transactions are to be lifted tomorrow.
This gives the green light for the property market to fire back into life – albeit in a very safe and managed way.
At 7.30 pm this evening, Estate Agent Today published an article stating that the Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick is expected to announce that the housing market in England can resume.
The article also went onto say it will mean estate and letting agents can return to work.
The news is based on a Government document called Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations 2020 which came out this evening.
All of what follows below will be subject to strict social distancing rules which we will adhere to.
The Green Light
It states people can visit estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes.
They can view residential properties to look for a property to buy or rent.
People can prepare a residential property to move in or move out.
Valuations and property inspections are now allowed.
Of course, the news has been well received by all at Martin & Co as we have many people wanting to buy, sell, let, and rent new properties.
We’re expecting a surge of enquiries from people looking to move, and we’ve been getting prepared for this moment since the lockdown began.
We have our clean protocol in place, PPE at the ready and we’re itching to help people in Chelmsford get moving.
But amid that excitement, we also realise we have a weight of social responsibility beyond our roles as estate agents.
And that is to practice social distancing properly, follow the Government’s health and safety guidelines thoroughly and ultimately look after the wellbeing of our clients, our team, and our community.
We’ll be on hand from 9am tomorrow to answer any of your questions.
It’s great to be back.
