"Buyers given go-ahead to view properties", says the Times.

So, we can have complete strangers in our houses, possibly estate agents too, but we can't have our own family.

What a way to run a country :rolleyes:.

God I hate this government.

The donors of the Tory party made some calls and got what they wanted. Nothing else to add. F*** your health, just make me profitable again.

share the covid house hunters then take it back to you boomers then upgrade to a nicer home.

As a FTB who is ready to go at a moment's notice I'm keen to see what happens to prices. I think the distressed sellers will be evident by their realistic prices! Or of course there could be kite-flying galore. Popcorn at the ready.

Dude, you sound like an alt right Trump supporter.

The amount of contact that would happen with some house viewings is small compared with seeing family, there'd be a lot less of it. And some people really do need to sort out a roof over their heads. Which is actually more important than hugging granny, although I know it doesn't feel like it.

It's messy and imperfect and certainly stuff I could argue over and disagree with the details too. But it's not a conspiracy or ploy to confuse. The govt are wrestling a many headed monster, we have to give them some credit for that.

Great!!

Lets get this show moving, those that play their part in upholding property market rhetoric and refuse to admit it's in trouble from here on will now have to answer the charges. I just cannot wait for a month or two and those indicies.

Buyer - “Hi bank, I want to buy a house, can I have a mortgage”?

Bank - “Are you on furlough”?

Buyer - “Yes”

Bank - “No”

or

 

Buyer - “Hi bank, I want to buy a house, can I have a mortgage”?

Bank-   "Are you going to ask for a 25% plus discount on peak prices"

Buyer-  No

Bank-   No as well

It shows how dependent the economy is on house purchase (that they chose to open this now).  That said it’s good for those who think prices are too high as the process has started.  There is a very negative sentiment about plus people on Furlough in actual financial trouble.  It really will depend on how many come on the market and how many can raise finances.  It’s possible the veracious appetite for houses will soak it all up but I highly doubt it.

Hancock on R4 this morning struggling to justify allowing estate agents, hairdressers etc in to your home but not family. 

I d imagine because it's done on commercial terms, ie its someone providing a service for money, you've a fair expectation that it will be conducted in line with govt guidelines. That said, I've yet to see these govt guidelines for businesses to see if they even make sense.
