The spread of Coronavirus has meant anyone with a property project whether investing or renovating needs to update themselves on the ‘new rules’ so they know what they can and can’t do. Although much of this guidance is coming into place for stay at home measures, Coronavirus isn’t going to go away for the rest of the year unless a vaccine is created, so it’s important to acknowledge that these measures are likely to be in place for some months and possibly the rest of the year. Read our Q&As for investors and renovators here.
The Government has asked tenants/landlords and buyers/sellers where possible to “delay moving to a new house while measures are in place to fight Coronavirus (COVID-19)". This information should answer all your questions, the Q&As, where possible, are taken directly from Government guidance, my Q&As are just the top 10 I have seen, helping to save you a bit of time hunting for an answer.
The Government has issued guidance to landlords, tenants the local authorities who ‘police’ lets in their area and renting guidance for landlords, tenants and local authorities. Wales has also provided information for tenants, landlords and agents and from Rent Smart Wales. This information should answer all your questions, our Q&As are more of a summary for the key questions asked, but always refer to the relevant documents and if necessary, quote from these documents to tenants. The next few weeks and months will be an incredibly testing time for landlords.
The Government guidance for buyers states that home buyers and renters should, where possible, delay moving to a new house while measures are in place to fight Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our advice is that if you have already exchanged contracts and the property is currently occupied then all parties should work together to agree a delay or another way to resolve this matter. These Q&As are in line with the clear government guidance.
