As of last night we’ve had confirmation from the UK Government that property sales and lettings can recommence in England. Property sales and lettings are one of the first areas of business to resume, however the guidance clearly states that this is not a return to normality. Click here for the Government guidance.
Although, we can now recommence our services in undertaking checkouts, and progression of new Tenancies, new processes must be put in place to ensure that social distancing and safety are the top priority. The focus remains on virtual activity in the first instance with physical viewings only taking place where there is serious intention to rent.
We are very fortunate in that the lettings transaction can be largely completed remotely. We intend to continue working from home where possible, any visits to our office must be by appointment only, with social distancing measures in place.
We do ask for your cooperation at this time as the transition from lockdown to returning to a ‘new normal‘ does take a little more time and planning to ensure we can act responsibly to ‘do our bit’ in protecting public health whilst working in the community.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your kind words, messages and understanding during what has been an unprecedented and sometimes difficult way of working, but we now look forward to delivering our services to you once again.
