What the new lockdown means for landlords and tenants in London

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

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 London?

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.

At Holland Porperties, we continue
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.
