Christmas Closure

The housing market remains fully operational with buyers and renters still being able to move home. THE HEYWOODS TEAM STILL REMAIN WORKING but with our office doors closed to the public. Some of our team are working from the office and some from their home offices so we can continue to our day-to-day tasks.

Viewings and valuations can still be arranged – As long as those attending follow the strict social distancing rules and wear appropriate PPE. Solicitors are still working to get your sales and purchases through to completion.

We will continue to play our part in reducing the spread of the virus through following all the relevant guidance. We are still available over the phone, via video and email, Monday to Saturday at our usual opening times.

For more information on how we’re adapting, please call our team on 01782 617343

The property market mainly consists of reasonably priced Victorian terraced houses.
