Moving House

I am stranded in the UK as my country of residence (Qatar) shut its border to none citizens without any notice, even those in mid air were not allowed entry on landing. I am moving from one AIRBNB to another as we are also in the middle of buying a house but that can’t go ahead either. I will continue to move around until the restriction on buying and moving house is lifted.

Why the contribution is important

To allow those who need to move house to do so but how can we when there is no official guidance on what is an essential move? Clearer guidelines are needed and allow people to move house with social distancing rules in place. The people moving out of our new house are moving to an empty property and we can wait 72 hours etc. before we move in to the house and we are buying all new furniture so no removal company needed.

    I agree, those seeing to move home and the professionals involved should be allowed to proceed. The advice, as is usual now, would be to observe social distancing and to limit journeys to different places/shops as much as possible.

    Why can you not stay in one property when so many short term lets are not functioning as holiday lets? Moving around between properties is very risky for you and the neighbours, especially if you are using shared spaces e.g. stairwells.
