The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities, and Local Government has confirmed that the housing market will remain open throughout this period. Therefore, it is business as usual for all staff, sub-contractors, and suppliers. Our construction teams will remain on-site and can continue to progress the build stages of our developments. This is reviewed on a regular basis in line with Government advice.
You Can Still Move Home
If you’re planning to move home. As long as you follow safety guidance and are not self-isolating, the government has confirmed that you can still move house, even during the new national lockdown.
Are Sales Offices Still Open For Viewings And Appointments?
Our show home remains open for viewings by appointment only, either at our sales office or via video, telephone appointment. However, as we are a live construction site, plot viewings are currently restricted until further notice. Virtual tours are available on selected plots.
We have implemented strict Covid-safe measures on our site, including temperature checks, the provision of hand sanitiser, the mandatory wearing of face coverings and enhanced cleaning.
You can still look forward to moving into your new Risby Home, but the guidance states you should not have help with moving home from any family members or friends outside your bubble, unless it is absolutely necessary.
Removal firms are still able to continue working with the usual safety procedures in place, so you can still book professional services required to help you move home.
Will There Be Any Delays With Moving Home?
It’s possible that in some areas the conveyancing process will be slower than usual, as some solicitors and agents may be operating at limited capacity, but the government has said that all professionals within the housing market can continue to work and visit properties, including tradespeople, inspectors, conveyancers, and surveyors.
For existing customers, we would like to reassure you that our committed sales team will continue to support you throughout your home buying journey and after-sales customer care.
