Safe working in the home moving market ,throughout the UK, under COVID-19 conditions
Latest Covid-19 Restrictions Update 18/03/21
The respective Governments of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have each issued updates on their plans for a return to a system of protection levels that can be applied locally or nationally to help manage the virus going forward and the respective Governments will be updating their Guidance on Moving Home over the course of the coming weeks to reflect these changes and to continue to ensure that moving home and supporting activities can happen safely. As things stand currently, there is no immediate change for the housing market and housing service providers, the current advice and guidance is still in place and we again stress the importance of everyone continuing to take steps to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. As before, your chosen BAR Member company will describe to you in detail how they plan to undertake your move in a way that is COVID secure.
Throughout the pandemic, the BAR has worked tirelessly with the authorities across all regions of the UK to keep the UK residential property industry moving safely. The professional Organisations and Associations across the home moving market, including the BAR, have been continuously collaborating with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), the Home Moves in Scotland Working Group, he Home Moves in Wales Stakeholder Group and the Devolved authorities in Northern Ireland, to design and implement a joined up approach to safe working practices across the home moving sector under COVID-19 conditions. We are in constant communication with all of the regional Administrations to seek further clarity on this developing situation and we will update Members as and when more information becomes available.
