Our Sales Director, Tony Wing DipSurv MRICS FNAEA, assesses the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s stamp duty changes - designed to stimulate the property market.
We have a huge backlog of viewing requests from the lockdown period that are being processed, in addition to new requests that are flooding in now the market has been opened – It's very busy! We thank you for your patience.
For buyers on the hunt for a new home, here is some advice as regards making a viewing request through RB&Co.
Amendments to the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 now provided consent for estate agents to open up the housing market and provide the general public with the opportunity to view, buy/rent and move home, once again. We are absolutely delighted for all our customers. At Robert Bell & Company we already have a socially distanced work plan for both our team and customers for prompt implementation and further announcements will be made shortly.
If NAEA Chief Executive Mark Haywood's prediction is correct that the housing market could be reopened by the end of May/beginning of June, it will be the good news that hundreds of thousands of buyers and sellers across the country have been desperately waiting and a great first boost towards the UK's economic recovery from the Coronavirus crisis.
The March 2020 RICS UK Residential Market Survey results highlight that despite the first few months of the year showing a marked pick-up in market activity, this month, as agents and the market go into lockdown, will have a significant impact on the outlook for the rest of 2020.
