Anyone in England can now move home as long as health guidance can be followed. This applies to both renters and buyers.
The law previously only allowed moving home if you had reasonable grounds for doing so at this time.
That restriction was necessary and appropriate at the time, but we are now able to change the rules so that people are free to start looking for a new home, and builders, developers and other property professionals are supported to return to work.
This can be done while minimising the risk of spreading the virus through continued observance of hygiene measures and social distancing.
The government has published new guidance on moving home which you are encouraged to read in full.
