We Are Open

The Government has announced the housing market is to remain open during the national four week lockdown. We aim to keep business open as usual, its understandable that many people are feeling anxious about the weeks ahead.

We would like to take this opportunity to outline our COVID 19 procedure again:

Our offices are open though strictly by appointment only, please telephone us before visiting.

Initial viewings will be done virtually where possible.

Members of the public who are visiting our offices or viewing properties should wear a suitable face covering and protective gloves.

Appointments are restricted to a maximum of two people from the same household accompanied by our agent.

When viewing properties in person, you should wear gloves, avoid touching surfaces wherever possible, wash your hands regularly and/or use hand sanitiser.

If you need to be accompanied by small children, you should try to keep them from touching surfaces and ensure they wash their hands regularly.

If people are being shown around your home, you should open all internal doors and ensure surfaces, such as door handles, are cleaned after each viewing with standard household cleaning products.

We recommend that home-owners vacate their properties whilst viewings are taking place in order to minimize unnecessary contact.

Anyone involved in any aspect of the home-moving process should practice social distancing in line with public health advice.

Those renting a property and landlords should be aware of and follow the “government guidance on coronavirus and renting” which contains further advice that may also be applicable such as on possession proceedings, repairs, maintenance and health and safety.

There is further guidance on the GOV.UK website, though please do not hesitate to contact us during these un-precedented times. We’re not all in the same boat but we are in the same storm, Stay Safe.
