Will there be any restrictions on home viewings and other housing market transactions?
The restrictions on viewing properties will be lifted on Monday 9 November, and prospective buyers and tenants can now make appropriate arrangements with landlords, agents or property owners to view properties. Everyone involved in the process should follow social distancingand handwashing and respiratory hygiene guidance.
Anyone who is in Wales, whether resident or travelling here, is bound by these rules. However, travelling to move home, or other related activity, is a reasonable excuse to enter Wales. Similarly, people living in Wales can travel to England for the purposes of moving home or other related activity. Where this is the case, the restrictions as may be applicable to you elsewhere in the UK will also need to be followed. More information will shortly be made available in our guidance on moving home during the coronavirus pandemic.
Can a mortgage survey or valuation now be done at my property?
Estate agents, valuers, surveyors or removal workers are allowed into a property. They must take all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, and we also recommend they follow guidance on working in other people’s homes
