The property market was one of the many industries that was forced to shut down during the coronavirus pandemic, with estate agents unable to show viewers around homes, removal companies unable to work, and conveyancers unable to carry out surveys.
With the government announcing an easing of the lockdown restrictions in England earlier in May, people have been starting to get back to what could be considered a more normal life.
The UK property market is currently in the state of limbo thanks to coronavirus, as homeowners cannot have viewers around to look at their residence and buyers cannot get conveyancers to do standard checks so they can move forward with the purchase. However, prior to the pandemic, recent figures have shown the sector was faring rather well.
With the lockdown in the UK extended until at least 7 May, anyone who was planning to move home in the coming weeks may be wondering whether they’ll still be able to get into their new abode.
If you’re hoping to move home in the coming months, your plans may have slowed down due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be doing things to prepare for your change of abode.
Relocating your business will always be a big undertaking, so it’s important to look at ways in which you can minimise the stress of it all before you start packing up your office into cardboard boxes.
