June 1st is the likely date that we will hopefully be able to open our doors and begin the process of selling and letting our clients properties again.  On-line searching has remained buoyant and a number of sales and lets have still completed during lockdown.  A number of new sales and rentals were also agreed.  We believe that with some pent-up demand and likely pressure put on the government to provide incentives such as stamp duty holidays to kick start things, together with low interest rates will help underpin the market.

 The wellbeing of our clients, colleagues and applicants is of paramount importance.  You can therefore be assured that we are implementing to put in place new procedures to ensure the safety of all.  When we are able to proceed with visiting and viewing properties, our staff will be supplied with facemasks, gloves and overshoes to ensure we will all be protected as much as possible. We will be recommending you take similar precautions.  We will advise further when we have clear guidance on how and when we can proceed.
