We are pleased to be given the green light by the Housing Minister to recommence market appraisals and viewings, however, we realise that we also have a social responsibility beyond that of being your local Estate Agent and recognise that as a buyer or seller, you will have concerns given the current situation with COVID-19.
We want to reassure you that the team at Thomas Watson will be following the Government’s health and safety guidelines thoroughly and ultimately will always ensure that the safety and wellbeing of our clients, our staff, and our community comes first.
It has been announced that restrictions around property viewings and transactions have been lifted. However, COVID-19 has not gone away, so we will be carrying out our business in an extremely safe and highly-managed way to ensure our clients and staff are protected at all times.
Entry into our office by members of the public, contractors, and surveyors will need to be by a pre-arranged appointment and the 2m distancing guidelines will need to be observed.
Buyers will need to be in a position to proceed I.e. only those who have sold their property (SSTC or Completed), have the cash to proceed without selling, are first time buyers or are living in rented accommodation will be permitted to view. For our clients selling, this is our recommendation only, as we feel it will reduce any unnecessary exposure however, if you do want to continue to let non proceedable people view we will act upon your instructions.
We will be adhering to the Social distancing guidelines and 2 metres must be observed at all times. Our staff may remain outside of the property whilst the viewing takes place. Our team members will wear a mask while conducting viewings. It is advised that viewers also wear their own PPE.
Vendors will be asked to leave lights on and doors open so that viewers to the property do not need to touch them. Viewers are asked not to touch surfaces unnecessarily. The Social distancing guidelines and 2 metres must be observed at all times.
Thomas will be happy to provide a market appraisal and the team at Thomas Watson will be delighted to discuss your options. We appreciate your circumstances may have changed or might be difficult right now, but we can help you talk it through in confidence.
If you are purchasing a property and require a RICS Home Buyers Survey, or Fee Paying Valuation, Thomas would be happy to arrange this. Please call Thomas on 07957135363 for more information and a competitive quotation.
Once a viewing/valuation/survey appointment has been arranged it is your responsibility to notify our office so we can postpone the appointment if anyone within your household displays symptoms of the covid-19 virus. You MUST NOT allow the appointment to take place if this is the case.
We will continue to provide a professional and friendly personal service and Our team can be contacted on 01915142020 or 07957135363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Above all, please continue to stay safe and Thank you as always for everyone’s ongoing support.
