Yesterday the Housing Secretary (supported by the Federation of Master Builders and Home Builders Federation ) sent a message to the housing industry encouraging the industry to build, sell and rent homes and carry out property maintenance throughout lockdown 2 reminding the sector of the guidance already in place on how the industry can work securely.
The Government is clearly keen that the property industry continues as long as we adhere to public health guidance. The message said ‘we can all play our part in ensuring that building and repairing homes can continue safely during this period’. This message in our view reinforces just how important the sector is to the economy as a whole. Wright Hassall will continue to work safely throughout the lockdown and beyond to support the housing industry through our housing association, private development and general property teams.
