Home moving: Government guidelines during the COVID-19 crisis

In the current COVID-19 situation it is good to have guidance issued to all stakeholders in the housing sector. The recommendations are that ‘if you can delay your home sale then you should’ and owners should ‘delay placing homes on the market’.

These guidelines are particularly relevant to ourselves, as Energy Assessors and Surveyors and especially for home buyers, renters, homeowners and property agents.

If you are home moving, we can continue to carry out EPCs by maintaining a safe 2-metre distance from others, making sure we wear gloves and to wash our hands when required. Commercial EPCs can still be undertaken if the premises are vacant.
