GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES FOR VIEWING A PROPERTY

As of 13 May, the Government has updated their guidance for England only to allow physically distanced viewings that carefully adhere to public health guidance. It is vital that safety comes first, with the guidance reflecting that with several measures that need to be followed to conduct viewings safely:

Viewings must only take place with serious buyers who are genuinely interested in the property.
Initial viewings should be done online as virtual viewings. We have created a guide on how to conduct your own virtual viewings. Your estate agent can also assist you on this.
When conducting physical viewings, they should be done by appointment only and open houses are not permitted.
If your home is being viewed, open all windows and doors prior to the viewing taking place and if possible, leave the property for the duration of the viewing.
Everyone involved must wash their hands prior to the viewing and hand washing facilities should be made available with separate paper towels if possible.
Estate agents will look to restrict the number of people present at the viewing in order to follow social distancing guidelines.
Once the viewing has finished, the homeowner should ensure surfaces such as door handles are cleaned.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Before the viewing your estate agent will confirm with you in writing that you have appropriate protective equipment. If you do not confirm prior to the viewing, your estate agent may cancel the appointment. Our members are working to best practice guidance which outlines the equipment all parties involved should use during viewings, including gloves and face coverings.

This guidance is designed to protect everyone involved with property viewings. It is important that you work with your estate agent and use the appropriate PPE to ensure everyone’s safety.

You can find the full Government guidance on property viewings ON THEIR WEBSITE.

Thank you so much. My friends and family are impressed by you and your company, and how helpful and indeed 'ethical' compared to some others out there. I really do hope to get some house selling business your way soon! Thanks again.
We have used Martin a couple of times to sell properties and to buy from him, we have found him to be very knowledgeable, honest and ‘on the ball’. We would use him over some of the other purple bricks type companies as with this type of purchase you need something to glue all the components together, with his upbeat positive, can do attitude we felt confident that he would sell our property and keep everything on track- which he did. 9th May 2021.
Dear Martin, I am writing to thank you, Julie and Lynne for the support throughout the sale of my mother's house in Pudsey (* The Fairway). Your regular updates by email and telephone helped considerably to ensure things progressed smoothly. I would be pleased to recommend your organisation to others requiring an Estate Agent. Could I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year. Yours faithfully, M Driver. 16/12/2019.
