Boost for Housing Market in England
Home owners in England have been given the green light to progress with their house move, as the Government looks to take steps to release areas of the economy from the Coronavirus restrictions.
News confirmed today by Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick is that people are now able to put their houses on the market and undertake some of the processes involved, albeit only in accordance with continued social distancing measures and the Government’s new ‘Stay Alert’ guidance.
This will come as welcome news for many who have been waiting since the Government advised for people to delay their move back in March. However, these changes only apply to those in England – the rest of the UK will still have the original restrictions in place.
