Tenant update on COVID-19
Please find below our most up-to-date communication to you as tenants in properties with John Goodwin FRICS.
I’m sure many of you have been monitoring the current Coronavirus situation and share our deep concerns with exactly how this situation develops. Many of us are as worried and concerned as you are and we are closely monitoring all updates and guidance carefully
The government has now imposed a lock-down on the country and this has resulted in us closing all offices to the general public and start working remotely for the foreseeable future.
We are also currently suspending all physical visits to all occupied properties as part of new guidelines and protocol for non-emergency visits
Many of you will soon be advised to follow the same guidance from your employers and we were pleased to see the government offer some form of security to most of the country’s workforce by confirming most will be able to receive the majority of their normal income and hopefully increase their chances of retaining their jobs or vocations in the event of being self-employed.
We were delighted to see the government also announce new legislation to protect tenants in the private rented sector and offer Landlords the opportunity of securing mortgage payment holidays to try and prevent any financial hardship
We understand that the government has announced policy that will requires all non key worker citizens to remain in their properties for an initial period of three weeks, to reduce the potential threat and spread of the virus.
