What does this mean for Cubbi Users?
VIC has provided an update from 28 September:
"Private inspections for residential real estate can also resume with one client (dependants and a partner may also attend) and is limited to 15 minutes. Residents who are living in the home must not be there. The 5km rule does not apply when inspecting a house for rent or purchase. You can only leave your home for a maximum of two hours to attend the inspection and you cannot travel into regional Victoria" Source.
You are still able to move house, but the curfew hours apply and be sure to be wearing face-masks/coverings, as "services related to property settlement or commencement/end-of-lease (including removalists) that cannot be done remotely are allowed."
Trades people can still visit homes but this is now for emergency support only.
We will continue to update this Cubbi Help Doc as more information is released.
