Can I move house during Lockdown explained?
or moving during Coronavirus Lockdown.
The best way to explain see below. last updated 27/03/2020
Our Prime minister has stated no one is allowed in your house that is not a family member.
Only essential key workers are allowed to not be at home.
The government have stated no 2 people can be within 2 meters of each other.
also maximum of 2 people in the same environment. so no one else in the house.
For example : How do you lift a washing machine and be 2 meters apart?
How can 2 members of staff travel in a removals truck and be 2 meters apart?
Correct at time of posting 27/03/2020
Please note: This week removals firms have been stopped on the roads all across the country and told to go back to there yard, with customers goods and not allowed to go back to the old house or the new house in risk of contamination, so customers belongings are left in the removals vehicles or face with £1000 fine per offence by the police, vehicle registration and names and details have been taken (would you want to risk with the possibility of not getting your belongings back) during lockdown period.
All storage companies are told to be closed as non essential moving during Coronavirus Lockdown.
If you want to go against the prime ministers order to stay at home, do you the customer or solicitor, want to pay the fines?.
So moving day will you wipe all items and bring to the front door so we don’t enter the house?
On delivery do you expect the removal company to wipe all the thousands of items before delivering?
This week we have received reports that banks not transferring the money as short on staff.
If the house is not empty now then you stand the risk of moving from a safe environment to one that has been infected.
Some solicitors have added disinfecting clauses after you move out, check.
The governing body of solicitors on 25/03/2020 has put on there own website on there contact us page they are closed as not safe to be open.
SRA Contact Centre and Professional Ethics opening hours

Moving house is not essential moving during Coronavirus Lockdown .
Everyone’s health is essential, So help us all stay at home.
If everyone stays at home we will be able to resume back to work sooner.
But if this is ignored this lock down will be longer, and be a waste of time with more delays until you take it seriously.
As this will continue to spread and delay us further, with more people dying, that nobody wants.
At Present Lock down is 3 weeks Starting 23/03/2020 Making the 13th April 2020 the earliest to resume possibly.
