Is it possibleto move home post Covid-19?

We’re well aware that the past few weeks have been very different for everyone and those that want to move house are no exception. Although moving house was never made illegal, much of the property market was placed on hold in April. Urgent transactions were able to take place but this put a pause on those that were non-urgent.

This week the government have announced that some of these restrictions have been lifted  and therefore, the property market is ready to go once again. Although there will be some changes, the technology we have at KnockKnock means that we’re already well equipped for this.

Does This Mean My House Move Can Go Ahead?

Since the changes in restrictions announced this week, it has been possible to buy, sell, rent or view property in England. This includes having a house survey completed, an estate agents valuation, mortgage appointments and even your EPC can be done! This is great news for those that want to get the ball-rolling with a house move and we’d love to help.

We have constantly made sure that we’re up to date with the latest government advice to ensure that we’re acting within the newest guidelines every step of the way when it comes to your property transaction. This includes your valuation, any viewings, ID checks, mortgage checks and more. Your safety is paramount to us and we’ll make sure this is taken into account every step of the way.

What Changes Will I Notice?

 

You’ll be aware that social distancing is still in place everywhere you go and viewing a house is no exception. We’ll be making sure that any viewings and valuations are carried out to strict guidelines to ensure everyone is as safe as possible.

 

The safety of our buyers, sellers and team is paramount. Alongside ensuring we offer a safe environment during any physical viewings, we’re asking people to register their details below to keep everyone as safe as possible.

 

That said, one of the biggest changes is that guidelines stipulate that anything that can be done virtually should be the preferred method. This is great for us because we have always offered innovative 3D property technology. This means that potential viewers can take a virtual stroll through your home and get an accurate digital representation.

What Are Knock Knock Doing To Keep Me Safe?

 

We’re keen to make sure that everyone is as safe as possible. As you’ll see from our page here, we have a list of guidelines for potential buyers who wish to view a property. This ensures that social distancing rules are taken into account for all viewings; they’ll prepare the property and ensure everyone who needs it has access to hand sanitiser before entering the property.

 

As a seller, this means the people who visit are limited – and those that do go ahead and book a physical viewing have already shown themselves to be serious buyers, which is great news for you! For both parties it means that viewings can take place at any time of the day and there is no disruption to the other – it’s technology we’re proud of and we know it will make a massive difference in this post covid-19 market.
