Agents can work in Tier 4 as government publishes guidelines
The Westminster government has published extensive guidance on the operation of the new Tier 4 Coronavirus restrictions in England.
This includes a section given over to moving home.
The full document covers working from home or at workplaces, educational locations, childcare, events such as weddings and funerals, sport and places of worship.
The entire moving home section is as follows:
“You can still move home. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary.
“Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings.
“Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing and wearing a face covering.”
In addition there is extensive guidance from Propertymark on how agencies should operate in a Covid-safe way.
And a reminder of where the new Tier 4 rules apply: all 32 boroughs of London and the City of London, most of Surrey plus Kent and Medway, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hastings and Rother, Hertfordshire and parts of Hampshire, Essex, Bedfordshire plus Peterborough.
