Scotland's home building industry is "ready to go" at the end of this week, insists Nicola Barclay of Homes for Scotland.
The government plan to ease restrictions on moving houses in phase two of their route map. Phase one is likely to begin on Thursday.
However, Ms Barclay tells BBC Radio Scotland: "I don't see any reason why we couldn't start from this Thursday.
"The lawyers, the lenders and removal firms have already said they have safe procedures in place for staff and customers.
"Most procedures have moved digitally over the last 10 weeks, there is very little face-to-face contact, even something like handing over keys can be done safely."
