PARTIAL REOPENING OF HOUSING MARKET IN WALES
The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford has announced that there will be a partial reopening of the housing market in Wales from Monday 22 June 2020.
We understand the Welsh Government’s five-mile Coronavirus travel restrictions are lifted for the property sector.
The Welsh Government’s position is very much about opening as much of the market as possible whilst minimising risk.
House moves can take place where a sale has been agreed but not yet completed.
The marketing and viewing of unoccupied residential property can take place.
Valuations and inspections of occupied residential property is allowed but should be done so safely and in line with the Welsh Government’s guidance on working in someone’s home.
House moves can still not take place where the residential property is occupied.
However, the Welsh Government have said that agents can now prepare to market these properties subject to a full reopening of the sector. (We are hopefully that these properties will be opened for viewings in July.
