Since May, property viewings and other estate agent activity has been able to resume in post-lockdown conditions, after being temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, since the virus outbreak the health and safety of customers, clients and staff has become a concern to everyone – for businesses, especially. From new booking systems to wearing face coverings; shopping, working, and socialising have become completely different experiences for some of us.
Furthermore, to bring assurance to those moving houses, the government brought in new guidance for estate agents, conveyancers, removal companies, and other organisations associated with this industry to follow. At Peter Lane & Partners, we understand the severity of these tough times and have strict social distancing guidelines in place to reassure buyers, sellers, and our staff that making that move is still possible and safe during COVID-19.
Despite this, in addition to these new rules and systems put in place, there are also plenty of things you can do to play your part in keeping house viewings you attend safe for all parties involved. If you’re attending a viewing anytime soon, be sure to follow these top tips on viewing a property safely.
