Lockdown Part 2
At the start of the first Covid-19 national lockdown the property industry were forced to close their offices along with all other ‘non-essential’ shops and offices.
During the next nationwide lockdown due to start on Thursday 5th November, the government have acknowledged that the letting and estate agencies are an essential part of the economy and will remain fully open.
We will of course continue to follow the government guidance on operating in a Covid secure manner.
We are taking additional measures to make sure we’re doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our clients, suppliers, tenants and team members.
1. We are keeping our head office closed, only one team member per day will access the office to check the post.
2. Reduced team numbers in our branches: To reduce the risk of transmission between team members, we are reducing the number of days per week each team member works in our branches. The team are still available by phone and email.
3. Virtual viewings: To reduce the number of in person viewings required, we’ve had video tours completed in most of our properties.
4. Covid secure viewings: We understand that video tours some times aren’t enough to make a decision about where to live next, so we are still conducting in person viewings, but, following all government guidance for how to do so safely.
