What would the second lockdown mean for my residential property letting and renting plans?
As England is preparing to enter the second lockdown from midnight (12:00 am) Thursday 05/11/2020, many landlords/ladies and renters would be rethinking their letting and rental plans and what this lockdown could mean for them. They may reconsider either to take a tenant (for landlords/ladies) or to rent (for renters) now or to postpone or simply to abandon their respective plans.
This is a difficult time for everybody to make any decisions since the coronavirus pandemic is not showing any sign of coming down. Non-essential activities or businesses have been advised to physically close again at least until the 2nd of December 2020 or operate only online in order to manage the crisis. We continue to follow the government’s advice and guidance while listening to the industry (the property industry’s advice) on the subject.
For those landlords/ladies who want to let out their properties, they may want know more about what they should do in terms of property letting and management guidance in relation to the Covid-19 issue. Likewise, for renters who desperately need somewhere to live, they may be willing to be informed on what to do to secure a safe place at this time.
As we all are aware, there are already general and special measures (publicized by the government and many health and protection agencies) that need to be seriously taken by everybody to protect themselves and others in order to slow down the pace and speed of Covid-19.
On top these already-in-place measures and advice, we are going both to re-customise them in the areas of residential property letting and management, as well as re-add new ones which are relevant to the property industry itself.
So, before the second lockdown effectively kicks off we are going to go extra miles in exchanging views and knowledge with landlords/ladies and renters on the possible healthiest and safest way of letting and renting a property during this critical time of Covid-19 bubbles.
Because of the health and protection advice and guidance we need to follow all of us, this week’s activity will only be run via phone conversations, text messages, video calls, emails and web contact forms. In practical terms, it means that those landlords/ladies and renters who would like to proceed with their respective letting and rental plans during this period of Covid-19 shock waves and crisis, they are welcome to remotely discuss their plans with Home Relief. And, if there is any specific piece of information from the sector (property sector), it is a good idea to share it so that any lettings and rentals can be done in a healthy and safe environment.
Like every non-essential retails, we will be handling only essential and emergency enquiries and queries once the second lockdown is effective and as long as it lasts.
