What the Tier System Means to Landlords and Tenants in the North East

In this two-minute speed read; we look at what the new tier system means for landlords and people looking to rent in the North East.

The tier system announced by the Government this week to combat the increase in Covid-19 cases has caused some concern from landlords and people who are looking to move.

The good news is that it shouldnโ€™t. ๐Ÿ˜Š

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 weโ€™ve been practising since the lockdown.

In the North East, we are currently in Tier 2 โ€“ which is described as โ€˜high alertโ€™ and imposes several restrictions including pubs and restaurants shutting at 10 pm and no households mixing indoors.

But even in high alert areas, Government guidelines say you can still move home. ๐Ÿ“ฆ

According to a statement on its website on Friday 16 October the Government advised:

Our priority is your safety. And thatโ€™s why we have the following measures in place to allow us to show people rental properties they are interested in.

Here are six of our Covid-secure steps.

  1. 1) We wear masks on all viewings. ๐Ÿ˜ท
  2. We wear disposable gloves on each viewing โ€“ these are only worn once then recycled. ๐Ÿงค
  3. We wear shoe coverings on each viewing. ๐Ÿฅฟ
  4. We carry and use hand sanitiser before and after each viewing. ๐Ÿ‘
  5. We will be the only people to open or touch handles or cupboards. ๐Ÿง
  6. We will wipe down any surfaces touched after the viewing has finished. ๐Ÿงฝ

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, weโ€™ll be following the guidelines and updates daily. And weโ€™ll continue to help people move homes safely, securely, and successfully. ๐Ÿš›
