On Monday, 29 June the Scottish Government updated coronavirus guidance for private landlords and letting agents to reflect the move to Phase 2 of their route map to recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak.
The guidance contains the latest information about COVID-19 and support available for private-sector tenants and landlords who may find themselves in financial difficulty due to the virus.
From 29 June, all home moves are allowed, provided they can be carried out safely. This includes students moving home and other home moves resulting in two households merging. It also applies to custom and self-builders looking to acquire a plot or a property to renovate or to demolish. The Scottish Government guidance on moving home provides advice on how to do this. This guidance contains advice to ensure that moving home in any tenure and supporting activities, such as viewing property, can happen safely during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Scotland.
