As a firm, we are making sure the welfare of our staff, clients, tenants and applicants are of the utmost importance. With the increase of cases, heightened level of risk, and recent government announcements regarding what is permitted and not permitted, we want to make sure that we adhere to this and reduce the spread of covid-19.
With this in mind, we will be restricting inspections and viewings, and reviewing matters on a case by case basis. We already have a covid-19 risk assessment in place, and this is reviewed and we continue to use PPE on inspections and request compliance with our risk assessment.
In terms of viewings of properties, it is our approach to limit risk and where properties are unoccupied and vacant, viewings will still continue and social distancing is adhered to. If the properties are residential and occupied, we will recommend a video tour or a virtual viewing if available, but due to restrictions not to mix households, physical viewings will be on hold for the time being.
Our valuers will still be able to carry out valuations, and will adhere to social distancing and make sure that occupiers do not exhibit symptoms and maintain a trace and track system.
We thank you for your continued support and patience, and wish you all a safe 2021.
