Corona Virus Update - Awaiting Guidance 2nd November 2020

With rising infection rates and the number of cases increasing locally, the Government have taken the decision to impose a four week national lockdown, commencing on the 5th November.

With infections affecting many of our friends and family, we believe that a lockdown is probably an essential decision which will hopefully reduce rates of spread and save lives.

As emphasised during the Prime Ministers speech, there is always a balance between keeping the economy running and ensuring everyone's health and safety. As many other businesses have had to adapt in our community, we are no different, making a number of changes to the way we conduct business safely and securely.

Such changes include making sure our office premises are accessed by the public on an appointment only basis, using screens and PPE within the office and using PPE and safe distancing rules within the office and when visiting other peoples properties for viewings and valuations.

The exact guidance on house selling and the lockdown has not yet been issued, but rest assured that when it is, we will be following it to the letter. We are already prepared to work from home and conduct virtual viewings and valuations, and this will become even more important if stringent restrictions are agreed.

We will be in touch again as soon as we learn more.

Kind regards,
