Moving House During A Pandemic | What To Remember?

Top Tips For Moving House During A Global Pandemic

If you are looking to buy a house during the pandemic, you still can. The housing market won’t be changing, and you can still view properties and plan moves. England is not under any lockdown restrictions, so nothing has changed for people looking to become homeowners. Regarding viewing properties and meeting others, it’s slightly different, however. You must ensure that the 2-metre social distancing rule is followed. You should also be continuously washing your hands to reduce any risks of coronavirus transmission. 

When viewing any properties or meeting the other homeowner, you should ensure that you have a face covering. Most estate agents will insist on this when attending the properties you wish to view. Some estate agents will also not allow the viewing of properties in person, they will request that this be done via video software. Most estate agents now have a virtual viewing video that has been recorded to allow you to fully view the property. If this is something that you aren’t too keen on you may need to wait for the agent to allow an in-person visit. 

Businesses that are assisting with house removals will need to ensure that they are following all risk assessments. There are currently no restrictions in place across England regarding how close you can be to someone. However, please consider following the 2-metre rule to ensure you and everyone involved with your big move stays safe.

If you have entered into an agreement to move properties, you may have to plan for delays. Due to the pandemic, house moves can be delayed at short notice due to staff shortages and other potential problems because of self-isolation. However, choosing the right removal company and having the right plan makes moving home much easier and ensures it’s a stress-free process.
