COVID Guidelines

Following the UK lockdown announcement we can confirm we are still operating.

To remain COVID safe have implemented the following guidelines for our operators:

Social distancing measures observed at all times
Hand sanitisers to be carried by all operators and used regularly
No knocking on vendors doors/interacting with vendors unless absolutely necessary
No visiting of branches
Face coverings/masks to be worn where possible
One person per van, unless those people live in the same household

Please ensure your customers are aware that we will be enforcing strict social distancing to protect all involved. We politely request they do not approach our operators, and boards are left in easily accessible locations for collection when required.

Thank you to all our clients for their continued patience during this time.

October’s property market slows

Month-on-month data recorded by the Property Activity Index reports the usual seasonal slump in the UK property market for October. The number of UK wide residential properties achieving ‘Sold’ status dropped sitting at -4% from last month figure as did new listings ‘For Sale’ at 15.7%.

Interestingly, although the UK property market has remained robust throughout 2013, month on month data recorded by the Property Activity Index data shows October 2012 reported a higher number of properties achieving a ‘Sold’ status, recording only a 0.7% drop.

Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:  In the face of a strong September and the industries excitement in the early announcement of the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme, it is easy to forget that seasonal slowdown is normal.  It is important to remember that property market now has confident consumers wanting to invest and the banks are ready to facilitate. Although we now might see a winter lull I am optimistic that the previous month’s robust activity will resume.
