NEWS FLASH – Green light for moving home – updated 13th May 2020

The amendments to the Health Protection (Corona Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 give the “green light” for the property and housing market to reopen from today.

This is a sudden announcement only made clear later yesterday evening by the Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick.  

Notwithstanding the short notice, we would like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to be there for you.  However, it has to be recognised that it is not normal times and we may at times be unable to process your matter as quickly as we normally would.

  • Our people are able to work remotely and they are able to work from home and will continue to be contactable by telephone and email
