Settlements during Alert Level 3

We are delighted with the recent MBIE update for settlements during level 3, we are back in business!

  • People can move homes at Alert Level 3. This includes:-
    • Sale and purchase of homes;
    • Rental moves;
    • Travel between regions for the purpose of moving house;
    • Freight and moving companies can operate so long as they do so safely.
  • Interactions to complete settlement should be done remotely.
  • Final pre-settlement inspection can be done in person, as long as all physical distancing and public health measures are taken.

Our team continue to be available to assist you via email, phone and video call and will be touch with our clients to discuss your individual settlements.

We also expect with the recent announcement that Real Estate Agents can begin work and show purchasers current listings (with strict conditions) that the housing market will get back on its feet. While we can’t meet with you face to face under level 3, we can continue to work with buyers and sellers alike via phone, email and zoom/facetime.
