Welsh Firebreak Announcement
Today, the First Minister announced that a short, sharp fire break will be introduced across Wales at the end of this week to help regain control of Coronavirus.
The fire-break will start at 6pm on Friday 23 October and end on Monday 9 November. It will apply to everyone living in Wales and will replace the local restrictions which are in force in some parts of the country.
Whilst we are required to close our offices, we will continue to provide a service to our clients by working remotely, however we must comply with the restrictions that are being imposed on us. This will of course impact on how soon we can respond to any enquiries and we simply ask for your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time.
We appreciate your continued support.
The Welsh Government has produced the following frequently asked questions (FAQs) that you may find useful :
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
Can I move home?
Yes, if you can’t delay the moving date until after the short lockdown period is over.
Associated activities, for example, removals processes, property preparation, handover of keys, surveys and valuations can also take place in line with guidance on working in other people’s homes.
Can home viewings take place?
No. Property viewings cannot take place during the circuit breaker period and high street estate agencies are required to close. Virtual viewings can continue.
Can a mortgage survey be done at my property?
Surveyors should not enter occupied properties during the lockdown period. Vacant properties can be entered and street level surveys can take place.
