The housing market can continue during lockdown in England

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on 4 January, announced England will move to a new national lockdown that requires, under UK Coronavirus Alert Level 5, people must stay at home, except for limited exceptions.

House moves are a limited exception and, therefore, are still be permitted to go ahead. Guidance issued by the UK Government states people can still move home, however, people outside a household or support bubble should not help with moving, unless absolutely necessary.

Estate and letting agents and removal firms can continue to work with property viewings still also allowed if anyone is looking to move.

It has been stressed the importance of following the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering.

Housing market activity returned on 12 May 2020 in England and has continued ever since due to the Government's belief in the importance of the sector and confidence that agents are operating safely.
