This is a fast moving situation and everywhere people are struggling to keep up. 

If contracts are already exchanged then, if completion can't be delayed by agreement, it is permitted to go ahead but practicing social distancing and good hygiene measures. 

If anyone has symptoms or is self isolating, the move should not take place. 

If you can delay, this is being advised but will have to be by full agreement as the contract provisions do not cover a situation like this.

Difficult to imagine with large chains. Lenders are extending mortgage offers to allow for the delay. However, no new transactions can take place with any certainty for the foreseeable future.
