14th May 2020 – Situation Update
Following the surprise announcement yesterday that we can reopen, I can confirm that we are back at work in some form with immediate effect. For the time being, the staff are furloughed and so there is only one person manning the office. Please be patient with us!
With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside theproperty and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you.
Thank you for your understanding!
