Are estate agents in Gateshead open through the second lockdown?

Estate Agents in Gateshead | Seven Keys keeps you reliably informed

As coronavirus cases across the UK skyrocketed, it became clear that a nation-wide lockdown was inevitable.

We’ve received many queries over the last two weeks about the situation for estate agents in Gateshead.

Although non-essential shops pubs and other businesses closed, we’re happy to say the property market is still open.

The government announced that the property market could operate through the period of lockdown. It can offer in-person viewings, valuations and construction on the condition that social distancing guidelines are followed. Tradespeople and removal companies are also permitted to continue working through this period.

Seven Keys is a leading team of estate agents in Gateshead. Since the announcement of the November lockdown we have been put rigorous social distancing measures in place. This is to ensure the safety of our customers, employees and associates.

Can I still move?

Absolutely. Whether you are renting or buying, it is still permitted for you to move home. In fact. If you are hoping to make the most of the stamp duty holiday, now may be the best time to act.

Due to a spike in demand earlier in the year following the announcement of the stamp duty holiday, the property sector has faced a backlog of house sales. Estate agents in Gateshead, including Seven Keys, have been working tirelessly to cope with this demand, however buyers can still expect to wait three to four months for their sale to close.

For this reason, we suggest acting now to ensure you are in with a better chance of buying within the window which is due to end on the 31 March 2021
