The housing market could be back up and running in just a few weeks after the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors confirmed it will unveil “practical guidance” to enable home valuations to restart safely. A RICS spokeswoman said the organisation was readying a new set of guidelines for valuers across the UK and hopes to release them imminently. “In the coming weeks, RICS will issue practical guidance to help professionals to re-open buildings and ensure safe home moving,” the spokeswoman said. However, she stressed that while it hoped the new guidance would enable safe property inspections to recommence, all firms should continue to follow government advice.
