Home moves still permitted in all Tiers across Scotland

The Scottish Government has confirmed that as of 2 November 2020, a new five tier system applies to help tackle the spread of COVID-19, but will allow house moves to continue.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19): Guidance on moving home has been updated to reflect the new framework and makes clear that home moves will continue to be permitted, provided they can be carried out safely. People can move home in all protection tiers, and to and from areas with different tiers.

Businesses can also continue to support people to move home in all areas, following relevant guidance, including the Scottish Government’s latest guidance for employers and businesses on returning to work safely during COVID-19.

Accordingly, Clyde Property will continue to operate but with extra vigilance and will of course still adhere to the hygiene, PPE and social distancing measures in the existing Scottish Government guidance on moving home and Propertymark best practice and guidance on house viewings, moves, and maintenance.

We appreciate the impact that COVID-19 has had on those eager to move this year and as Scotland’s leading independent agent, we want you to know that we are here for you every step of the way as you look to restart your moving journey.

Below you see our COVID-19 policies, designed around best practice and guidance from the Scottish Government. We believe it is important to be transparent with you about our working practices as we look to protect our valued communities in which we operate.

The spring budget was announced this week and it included the news that the government is introducing a 95% loan to value (LTV) mortgage guarantee scheme to help all buyers with small deposits – including first time buyers and those looking to move up the property ladder. The scheme is due to launch in April and will enable buyers to purchase a home priced up to £600,000 with a deposit of 5%.
