A refreshingly simple approach to estate agency and holiday home sales
OUR LATEST SERVICE UPDATE
As members of one of the industry’s leading bodies Propertymark, we here at Morris and Bott are able to keep up to date with the ever-changing advice from the government in these extraordinary times. Please find below their latest advice to members:
Propertymark have spoken to a senior civil servant at the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) this morning (24/03/2020).
The civil servant stated that agents are not “essential businesses” under the new rules and therefore their view is that agents should close their offices immediately.
Furthermore, and more importantly for our clients, they stated that there should not be any in-person viewings, routine inspections or house moves.
MHCLG is still looking into property maintenance tasks such as gas safety checks and hopes to issue guidance on these points as soon as possible.
In a further development, British Association of Removers (BAR) has issued communications this morning instructing members that moves should only be completed if they are already underway, any move that has not yet started, should not go ahead.
You can still reach a member of our team during business hours in the usual ways either by phone or email.
