Can I still move house in the National Lockdown?
You can still move home.
People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary.
Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work.

With the stamp duty holiday ending on the 31 March 2021 if you have only just agreed a sale or purchase, please note that transactions are currently taking longer, partly because of the volume of cases and partly because of delays in the processing of searches and mortgages. So we cannot guarantee that your transaction can be completed within this timescale.
We would recommend that you plan your budget on the assumption that stamp duty will be payable as if you are in a long chain, everyone has to be ready with their mortgage offer, searches and all enquiries dealt with before contracts can be exchanged and a completion date fixed.
Stamp duty is based on the day of completion, so completion has to be on or before 31 March 2021 to take advantage of the savings.
