Office to close during Coronavirus Firebreak

The Anthony Flint Property Consultants office will be closed as of Friday, October 23, as part of the Welsh Government’s Coronavirus Firebreak.

The office will close at 5pm on Friday, October 23, and won’t re-open until 9.30am on Monday, November 9.

The closure is a result of the circuit breaker announced by the Welsh Government and will also mean we are unable to conduct in-person house viewings during this period.

Virtual viewings will still be available upon request.

Despite the office closure we will still be picking up phone calls and emails during the circuit breaker period –  Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm.

You are able to move home during the next few weeks, but only if you can’t delay the moving date until after the lockdown is over.

Mortgage surveys are able to be conducted on vacant properties only and travel to a second property is not allowed.

 

Welsh Government Coronavirus Firebreak – FAQ

Can I move home?

Yes, if you can’t delay the moving date until after the short lockdown period is over.

Associated activities, for example, removals processes, property preparation, handover of keys, surveys and valuations can also take place in line with guidance on working in other people’s homes.

Can home viewings take place?

No. Property viewings cannot take place during the circuit breaker period and high street estate agencies are required to close. Virtual viewings can continue.

Can a mortgage survey be done at my property?

Surveyors should not enter occupied properties during the lockdown period. Vacant properties can be entered and street level surveys can take place.

Can I travel to and from my second home during the lockdown?

No. Travel in Wales without a reasonable excuse during the circuit breaker lockdown period is an offence. Travelling into, out of or within Wales to visit, check/inspect or stay in a second home is not a reasonable excuse.
