In this two-minute read, we look at what the announcement on Saturday by Prime Minister Boris Johnson means to landlords and tenants in Runcorn.

The writing has been on the wall for several days now, but on Saturday we received confirmation that England will go into lockdown from Thursday, November 5 until at least December 2.

So, how will this affect landlords and tenants in Runcorn?

Well, firstly it’s good news from a property moving perspective because the Housing Minister Robert Jenrick confirmed in a tweet on Saturday evening that the market was still very much open for business.

Question:

‘Can I still move home?’

Answer:

‘Yes – the housing market will remain open throughout this period. Everyone should continue to play their part in reducing the spread of the virus by following the current guidance.’

The Minister’s tweet linked to an information guide about the new lockdown which you can find at the bottom of this article.

I’m  continuing to work hard for our landlords and tenants in a Covid-19 secure way, while strictly following the regulations laid out by the Government.

Yes we Can

We can still conduct safety first viewings using PPE, hand sanitisers and social distancing.

We will still carry out inspections safely and sensitively.

We remain able to organise maintenance and repairs under the new lockdown.

And we will keep everyone we work with updated about any changes that may happen.

Here for YOU

I appreciate this is an anxious time for many of my clients and that’s why I want you to contact me if you have any questions, concerns or want to get a better understanding of what’s happening.

As we were in the first lockdown, I am 100 per cent committed and focussed on doing the right things for our clients, our colleagues, and our community.

Thanks for reading.
