Lockdown 2.0.

I think we all knew it was coming, and on Saturday night it was confirmed as Boris Johnson instigated Lockdown 2.0.

From Thursday, November 5th we will enter 27 days of lockdown until Wednesday December 2nd.

The good news is that the property market will remain open for buyers and sellers in Kidderminster.

Here we answer your frequently asked questions, so you know exactly what to expect during Lockdown 2.0.

Can I put my home in Kidderminster on the market?

Yes. Our team at Doolittle & Dalley are ready to take your call and assist with the valuation of your property. We strictly follow all government guidelines and are happy to explain all the measures we have in place including the option of a video valuation.

Can I view properties in Kidderminster?

Yes. We offer video tours on some of our properties in Kidderminster and can still conduct safe in-person viewings through our proper use of PPE, social distancing and strict hygiene rules.

Can I move home in Kidderminster?

Yes, you can. If your sale or purchase is in progress, please speak with us if you have any concerns so that we can put your mind at rest.

We understand you may be anxious about how Lockdown 2.0 may affect the progression of your sale or purchase, and we will do everything we can to ensure it runs smoothly.

Guidance remains the same as was issued previously:

“We have changed how we work to reduce the risk from COVID-19…..We encourage all parties to be as flexible as possible and to be prepared to delay house moves, for example, if one of those involved tests positive with COVID-19 during the moving process or has to self-isolate due to contact.

Those renting a property, letting agents and landlords should be aware of and follow the Government guidance on coronavirus and renting which contains further advice that may also be applicable.

Initial viewings should be virtual wherever possible.” 

Viewings should be arranged by appointment only. ‘Open house’ viewings should not take place.”

When viewing properties in person, you should avoid touching surfaces, regularly wash your hands and use hand sanitiser. Open all internal doors within your property before a viewing and ensure surfaces, such as door handles, are cleaned after each viewing. We recommend that owners vacate their property while viewings are taking place to minimise unnecessary contact.

Social distancing should be practised in line with public health advice.”

The team at Doolittle & Dalley will always keep you updated. Please be assured that we are totally committed to keeping our clients, colleagues and community safe.

A full list of the new regulations is available here.

If you have any concerns, please telephone us on 01562821600.

From all at Doolittle & Dalley, please stay safe.
