So we’re back in lockdown. This time round we all know the drill and the Government has swiftly confirmed that the property market will stay open for business. So letting and estate agents can continue to work with clients in a Covid-safe way with viewings, sales and rentals all able to go ahead. Ringley will continue to provide services to clients in the same way as it has done throughout the pandemic, so please don’t be afraid to contact us if you have a problem or query. Our property experts are here to help.
And despite the fact that landlords and tenants may have a strong sense of Deja Vue today, we thought it worthwhile to remind you once again of the official guidance for the rental market with lockdown restrictions back in place.
As we understand it, the new restrictions now in force for our industry are the same as those for Tier 4, so the same rules apply. Here’s a round-up of the key points.
Finally, as we have emphasised since the first lockdown began in March 2020, and the government advice reiterates: “Letting agents and landlords should endeavour to work with their tenants to sustain tenancies as far as possible, where the tenant wants to and is able to stay.”
