According to , 18 per cent of home movers are still planning on moving later this year, and 62 per cent plan to use the lockdown to get as much done as possible to ensure a smooth move once the lockdown ends.
The most important thing to do, if possible, is to put all transactions on hold and agree on an extension to your current contract with your existing landlord.
If you are unable to wait, for whatever reason, then while it is strongly recommended to wait until after the lockdown to limit the risk of catching or spreading coronavirus, you can move house but you must adhere to the government advice regarding social distancing.
Renting during the coronavirus crisis has become very difficult. The market has significantly dropped, and some renters are having to move out due to financial constraints, which means there are many properties going empty.
However renting is still possible, of course, tenants can look at photographs of properties online. Often now, estate agents can prepare a video tour of a property, and some tenants have been helping out by creating the videos themselves.
Video tours mean that prospective tenants do not need to suspend their property search until the lockdown is over, and allow tenants to plan with shopping for a new home that they have been as yet unable to visit.
