This week the UK Government announced that people in England will be able to move in and out of properties, providing social distancing measures are followed due to coronavirus.
However, the rules in Wales remain unchanged for the moment.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020) state that people can move house but only where the move cannot be postponed.
In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, First Minister Mark Drakeford MS provided an update on the Welsh Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
He said the Welsh Government’s exit strategy will hopefully be made public on Friday, adding that there are currently “no plans” to replicate in Wales the measures which have been introduced in respect of the housing market in England.
