COVID-19 Response

THE HOUSING MARKET IS TO REMAIN OPEN FOLLOWING THE NATIONAL LOCKDWON ANNOUNCEMENT ON MONDAY 4TH JANUARY 2021

The Prime Minister announced on Monday 4th January 2021 that people in England would be going back into a lockdown with immediate effect.  The Government have issued updated guidance for home-movers confirming people can still move homes providing they follow the guidelines.

Every measure has been taken to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.

Brink Riley Properties continue to market property to let, provide property management, and deliver our usual exceptional customer care. Some business-critical personnel are working from home to guarantee continuity of service in any COVID related circumstances.

5/1: update

In line with Government guidance, we will be staying open during the January lockdown to help our Tenants and Landlords. Our valuations and viewing services will continue with all necessary precautions taken to keep our staff and customers safe.

Government guidelines: 

The government has confirmed estate agents in England are permitted to remain open.

The housing market in England will remain open. This means that people looking to move home will be able to both continue with planned moves and view new properties to move into in the future. Estate and lettings agents, removers, valuers and people in sales and lettings offices and show homes will be able to continue working

Moving home 

You can still move home. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary. Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings. Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering. 

Viewings and valuations 

We will be conducting in-person market appraisals and viewings for property to let (with occupants full consent). These will be conducted safely and in accordance with the strictest social distancing guidelines. Click here for our Covid-secure appointments process.
