What the Tier System Means to Buyers and Sellers in Royston & Ware

In this two-minute speed read; we look at what the new tier system means for buyers and sellers looking to move in Royston & Ware, both of which are currently in tier 2 of the Covid risk system.

The tier system announced by the Government last week to combat the increase in Covid-19 cases has caused some concern from people who are looking to sell or buy a home at the moment.

The good news is that it shouldn’t.

This is because even in the highest tiered areas which the Government has said are at very high-risk, people can still move. Albeit with extra safety precautions which we’ve been practising since the lockdown.

In Royston and Ware, we are currently in Tier 1 – which is described as ‘medium alert’ and includes several guidance points including:

– Businesses and venues can continue to operate, but pubs and restaurants must ensure customers only consume food and drink while seated, and close between 10 pm and 5 am.

– Takeaway food can continue to be sold after 10 pm if ordered by phone or online.

– Schools and universities remain open.

Even in high alert areas, Government guidelines say you can still move home.

According to a statement on its website on Friday 16 October, the Government advised: “You can still move home if you’re in a medium alert level area. Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work, and people looking to move home can continue to undertake viewings.

Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing and wearing a face covering.”

Everyone has a part to play in helping us all get back to normal as soon as possible, and we take our responsibility to keep you safe very seriously.

So, we’ll be following the guidelines and updates daily. And we’ll continue to help people buy and sell homes safely, securely, and successfully.

If you are a home seller or buyer in Royston or Ware and have any questions about what the tier system might mean to you, please get in touch.
