Real estate purchase, moving

Rules and recommendations

Starting on April 12, the inter-district movement restrictions will be lifted. Personal real estate viewings will again be allowed to take place.

Real estate sale and purchase

Real estate sale and purchase is allowed during the state of emergency. However, such acts should currently occur only if absolutely necessary. Thus, if this is not the case, please postpone your real estate sale or purchase until the epidemic situation turns better.

Due to the ban on free movement, no personal real estate viewings are allowed to take place - as opposed to online ones.


If you are not in quarantine or isolation, you can move. Nevertheless, you should move only if absolutely necessary. If you are not in a hurry regarding your planned moving, please postpone it until the infection risk becomes lower.

While moving, you are even allowed to cross the borders of your (previous) permanent residence district. However, you will need to prove the purpose of your travel. In this case, the rental or purchase contract regarding your new real estate is the best proof. Alternatively, you can use a sworn statement (PDF template - in Czech only,  Word template - in Czech only) or the Inter-District Movement Affidavit (PDF template - in Czech only, Word template - in Czech only) as well. 

During moving, you should adhere to elevated hygienic measures, especially have your respirator or surgical mask put on while in contact with persons not being your household member, sanitize your hands and maintain social distancing. As a preventative measure, you should ventilate your new real estate regularly as well.
