Emergency coronavirus law makes moving house an exception to public gatherings restrictions
A new Statute was passed yesterday and came into immediate effect in England. It forbids anyone leaving the place where they are living “without reasonable excuse”.
It goes on to say that a reasonable excuse includes “the need to move house where reasonably necessary”.
The new law also specifies restrictions on public gatherings,limiting these to no more than two people. An exception is to “facilitate a house move”.
Accommodation providers, such as hotels, also have to close during the emergency period, but can provide accommodation for certain people including those needing “accommodation while moving house”.
The provisions are in the Health Protection (Coronavirus,Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020.
