England's Second Lockdown - What does this mean for Estate Agents?
A lockdown? … not for the housing industry

As you are all aware, Boris Johnson announced that a country wide lock down will commence on Thursday 5th November for the duration of 4 weeks. Whilst this will mimic the first lockdown in many ways, it will be different for Estate Agents this time. For us, this means we will be operating as usual, albeit wearing PPE and although we would love to have our beloved clients in for a catch up over a hot drink, we are still operating on an appointment only policy to minimise foot fall in our office, so please call us on 020 7272 1090 and we can still lend a helping hand, but for now this with have to be virtually.

David Cox (Legal & Compliance Director, Rightmove), has confirmed what business will look like in the housing sector as of Thursday as he has issued a message from the government, stating: "Buying, selling and renting a home can continue, in a COVID-secure way, as it has in recent months. Estate and letting agents can operate, show homes and sales suites can remain open and property viewings, mortgage valuations and surveys can take place."

Every member of JTM Homes will be wearing PPE on viewings, valuations, and property visits. We also request that those remaining in the property will also mimic our precautionary measures.

We appreciate that this is an unsettling time for many but in terms of your housing needs we pride ourselves on excellent customer satisfaction and we will continue this throughout this lockdown, aiding our clients every step of the way! We are certain that all pending move – ins will continue as normal and as always, we aim to get all our clients into their new proeprties without any delays.

Thank you again for your continued support throughout this ambiguous year so far, we look forward to being back in contact with you when any of the ever changing requirements change, but in the meantime if you have any questions please call 020 7272 1090 or email jason@jtmhomes.co.uk and we will be more than happy to help.

Stay safe and keep well!

From everyone at JTM Homes
