Together has confirmed it is remaining open during the third national lockdown.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced yesterday, 4 January, that further restrictions will be emplace by law from 6 January.

The increased restrictions are accountable to the latest variant of coronavirus, which is 50% to 70% more transmissible.

The restrictions are expected to be in place until at least the middle of February.

Pete Ball, personal finance chief executive at Together (pictured), said: “The UK property market remains buoyant, with mortgage lending surging to a 13-year high and we are committed to supporting the ambitions of current customers and those looking to borrow throughout this period, as we did during the last lockdown.

“We will continue to support a large number of homebuyers who’ve entered the property market since last spring and others who want to make their dream house purchase a reality, including those who wish to benefit from the current stamp duty holiday.”

Marc Goldberg, commercial chief executive of Together (pictured), added: “Our key priority is working with our business partners to make sure we deliver positive customer outcomes.

“And, although it’s difficult to predict the future in such turbulent times, we’re confident that we have the right mix of experienced and knowledgeable colleagues to be able to meet the high expectations of our commercial and personal finance brokers and customers.”

“The approvals of new COVID-19 vaccines and the subsequent roll out of vaccination programmes across the UK should bring more stability, providing a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel for individuals and businesses to prosper in 2021.”
