Moving house and the distancing rules


From June 13 the rules are that you  cannot have more than 20 people visit your home at any one time. However if you are moving house there are exceptions to this.

A person is not considered a 'visitor' for the purposes of this 20-person restriction if they are:

  • a member of your household, 
  • they are at your house for the purpose of work (e.g. removalists and real estate agents),
  • they are there to assist you with moving to or from a place of residence.

Restrictions on movement and gatherings are being changed all the time. You can read the most current NSW Public Health Orders here.

Key health guidelines must still always be met, including ensuring physical distancing of greater than 1.5 metres is maintained. You can read the NSW Government's guidelines on social distancing here.

Before or while you move, if you have health and safety concerns about allowing access to your home for an open house or auction see 'Do I need to provide access?'.
