18th May 2020 posted in

Even though many people are hesitant or reluctant to move homes right now, it is likely many households are planning a move before too long. When you spend a lot of time indoors, you might feel as though it is time for a change. Also, a lot of people’s circumstances have changed during the dealing of the coronavirus pandemic; and this often sees people looking to move sooner rather than later.

Therefore, it is likely people are planning their next move right now. There will be people reviewing their finances, considering their options, and getting packed up and ready to move as soon as they have the chance.

At Hunters Forest Hill, we are here to ensure you receive the support and guidance you need during this trying time. We know some people are looking to move, and we are here to assist you if you are keen to move soon. We are following social distancing guidelines, but we are on hand to help you if you need us.

So, we think many people are keen to move soon, and this is a thought which has been shared by the Chief Executive of ARLA Propertymark, David Cox.

Cox was speaking on an industry webinar, with 1,000 industry professionals in attendance. Cox said; “There’s clearly a massive amount of pent-up demand in the market. Our message is just put everything on pause – don’t cancel it.”

Cox informed agents to work on their post-lockdown strategies and to be prepared to help people looking to move soon. The first seven days when the market is fully operational again will likely be very busy, with a wave of new tenancy applications. Savvy agents are currently assessing their capacity requirements and how to provide clients with dependable service.

You can rest assured we are currently working on these matters, and we look forward to assisting you when you need us.

Cox also pointed out that landlords have a lot of legislative changes to consider this year. If you are a landlord, you want to call on an agent who is up to date, and ready for these new challenges. You can depend on us.

David Cox spoke on this matter, saying; “Sooner or later, the Government is going to go back to its normal course of business”, he warned, citing the need to be prepared for the abolition of Section 21, Electrical Safety Regulations on new tenancies and the Regulation of Property Agents. He believes this crisis will also drive further legislative change that agents and landlords must prepare for.”
