Corona virus update 18/05/2020

We are pleased to confirm that Wharfedale Homes has now restarted construction at both Helmsley and Hampsthwaite.

On Tuesday 12th May the government confirmed that house transactions could now go ahead with Estate Agents, Valuers, and Removal companies being encouraged to return to work. It was also confirmed that View Homes and sales offices could re-open.

We have been working to ensure that we are satisfied our sales activities and premises are Covid Secure and are delighted to announce our View Home at Carlton Road will re-open on Thursday May 21st at 11.00am. Thereafter it will be open from 11.00am to 16.00pm from Thursday to Monday every week.

We have new Covid Secure procedures in place and can accommodate one household only at a time in the View Home. To ensure that all purchasers are kept safe we ask that all visitors ring ahead for an appointment on 07388 388147.

We are also working hard to complete the homes for all those purchasers who have been waiting patiently throughout the Lockdown period and we will be resuming handovers in June.

At the current time we are collating any requests for snagging and non-essential maintenance work but wish to avoid sending contractors to customers homes unless absolutely necessary. We expect to resume routine works from the beginning of July in line with the anticipated further easing of the Corona Virus restrictions. Please contact us by emailing

For those customers interested in our new developments planned for Burton Leonard and Whitby these have been delayed in planning and we expect to commence construction later this year with first completions in the second half of 2021.

Our office staff will primarily be working from home and we ask that enquiries to the office should be channelled to .

We are very conscious of the fantastic collaborative effort and support we have received from our customers and contractors over recent weeks. We very much appreciate the courtesy and understanding that everybody has brought to bear in dealing with the challenges which have been created by the Corona Virus pandemic. Thank you again and please continue to keep safe over the coming months.
