Safe working practices under COVID-19 conditions
To ensure a joined up approach in getting the UK residential property industry moving safely, residential property professional bodies including the BAR, have collaborated with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to develop guidance on home moving. This has led to a pan-industry guide being published which has in turn been supported by sector specific guidance. It is important to ensure a joined up approach and consistency across the home moving sector, hence the industry has aligned its processes with sector guidance developed by MHCLG develops.
A document published by the BAR to its Members on Wednesday 6th May, and which has been widely endorsed by those other professional organisations and associations in the property moving industry and which has also been seen by MHCLG, provides clear guidance on risk mitigation procedures for the 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.
