EYE has become aware of the detail of The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 which apparently come into force tomorrow, May 13th.
The amendments appear to alter travel restrictions as follows:
(v) or sub-paragraph (l), substitute—
“(l) to undertake any of the following activities in connection with the purchase, sale, letting or rental of a residential property— (i) visiting estate or letting agents, developer sales offices or show homes; (ii) viewing residential properties to look for a property to buy or rent; (iii) preparing a residential property to move in;(iv) moving home; (v) visiting a residential property to undertake any activities required for the rental or sale of that property;”
This appears to give a green light for the resumption of estate agency activity.
