England

For details of the latest COVID19 Restrictions in England announced which take effect on Thursday 5th November click on this link to the gov.uk websitepage.

Summary of the key points

Hotels, hostels and other accommodation should only open for those who have to travel for work purposes and for a limited number of other exemptions which will be set out in law.

Pre-booked holidays that were due to start prior to the 5th November can continue as normal, so there is no need for owners or guests to cancel a holiday that meets this criterion purely as a result of the new Lockdown information being announced.

The Job Retention scheme (Furlough) will now be extended until for a further month. The Job Support Scheme has therefore been postponed until Retention Scheme ends :

If you have taken a mortgage holiday, you will be able to top up the holiday period to a total of six months (including holiday months already taken). Borrowers who have been impacted by COVID19 and have not yet had a mortgage payment holiday will be entitled to a six-month holiday. Those that have already started a mortgage payment holiday will be able to top up to six months without this being recorded on their credit file.

 

Scotland

A five-level system for Scotland came into place on Monday 2nd November. For information about the 5-Tier System and the latest regulations click here to read the article published by the Association of Scottish Self-Caterers

 

Wales

A two-week' Firebreak was introduced on the 23rd October. It is not certain if or not restrictions will be in place when this ends.  Welsh AssemblyMinisters have worked through the weekend to discuss the new national measures, which will be put in place from 9 November. These details are still being finalised, but it is hoped they will be announced on the 3rd November.

We are continuing to finalise the details of these measures and I will make a further statement to the Senedd tomorrow. Details should be published here: Gov.Wales/Announcements
