Goverment Guidance on Buying and Selling Properties

There are a lot of questions coming from all sides about what is currently going on in the industry and advice on buying and selling during this period. The government has now given advice to the public on these matters

Moving in

If the property is currently vacant you may continue the transaction as normal but be aware of measure and guidance on Home removals

Homebuyers and renters should delay moving into a new home during this time whilst stay at home measures are in place. If you have exchanged contracts and the home is still currently occupied you should arrange with all parties involved to delay or come to some other arrangements.

Speak to and we will help you rearrange the move-in dates of potential purchasers and tenets.

Viewing

If the property is already on the market you can continue to advertise but must refrain from allowing people into view. Speak to us and we can arrange virtual viewings of your property for those interested in seeing it.

Mortgage term agreements

UK Finance has confirmed that all mortgage lenders are working to find ways to enable customers who have exchanged contracts to extend their mortgage offer for up to three months to enable them to move at a later date

Whilst the outbreak of COVID-19 has proved a challenge, the Poole Townsend team have gone above and beyond to ensure our clients receive the level of service they’re accustomed to. In fact, during the past week, we have rearranged move-in dates for those suffering from Coronavirus symptoms, provided emergency fast-track move-ins for those wanting to give vulnerable family members space and more!

Speak to one of our advisers to find out how we can help you during these unpredictable times.
