Coronavirus update January 2021 – Property Market to remain open

Following the Government’s announcement regarding a National Lockdown it has been confirmed Estate and Letting Agencies can remain open and house move are permitted.

The guidance states you can still move home. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary. Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings. Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering.

Here at Henry Adams we have strict Covid procedures in place and our teams will continue to follow these to enable our customers to move home safely.  Please make sure that you follow our guidelines, we are working to keep you and our teams safe.  Please see our Safe Viewings Check Sheet and Safe Valuations Check Sheet.
