Unbelievably under the current guidelines, the housing market remains open.

Yes, you can still move home. Which for me if I’m honest is slightly worrying as I can go and value six homes today, show six people around six different properties but I can’t go and have a cup of tea with my Mum and Dad.

Here at Cox & Co our number one priority is the safety of our staff and customers so therefore we will be looking after every customer differently based on what is best for them and focusing on their individual needs and requirements.

Although our offices may sometimes be shut during the current lockdown, we will be working remotely and on occasion also in our branches as long as there is only one staff member on-site at any given time.

If required, we will still offer our full service, including free valuation and marketing advice and property viewings. However, these will be done differently, focusing on minimal contact and a safety-first approach.

We will all, of course, carry out all business activities on a Covid secure basis and our customers should follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face-covering – see link below.
