Safe working practices under COVID-19 conditions

Updated 1st November 2020:

Latest guidelines from the Governments in all areas of the UK confirm that you can still move home even under ‘lockdown’ or ‘circuit breaker’ conditions. Estate and letting agents and removals companies can continue to work, and people looking to move home can continue to do so. For more information, follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing and wearing a face covering.

In order to keep the UK residential property industry moving safely, residential property professional bodies including the BAR, have been continuously collaborating with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to update previously published guidance that  notes that remind everyone of what they should be doing when moving home under Covid-19 conditions. It is vital to ensure that we collectively maintain joined up approach and consistency across the home moving sector, hence the industry has aligned its processes with sector guidance developed by MHCLG.

A process document published by the BAR to its Members on Wednesday 6th May, and further updated on 27th July and 21st September, has been widely endorsed by those other professional organisations and associations in the property moving industry, and reviewed by MHCLG, The Home Moves in Scotland Working Group and The Home Moves in Wales Stakeholder Group. Those processes provide clear guidance on risk mitigation procedures to be adopted by removers and their clients. It must be noted that the fact of implementing the necessary safe working practices will inevitably have some impacts on the scheduling and resourcing of a move and so we strongly advise that you discuss all such considerations in detail with your chosen BAR Member mover.
