Coronavirus – London Property Match and Government Guidelines for Property Agents
London Property Match will be adhering to the guidelines the government has published as regards viewing properties during the Coronavirus pandemic. For ease of reference these are:
Virtual viewings are being strongly encouraged.
Physical viewings should only be conducted where clients are seriously considering making an offer on a property. We will, of course, virtually view on behalf of clients and where there is a property we very much like the look of we will try our utmost to physically view it ahead of clients, complying with the below guidelines.
If any member of either the household being viewed, or the household undertaking a viewing is showing symptoms of coronavirus or is self-isolating, then the physical viewing should be delayed. All viewings have to take place by appointment and only involve members of a single household.
When viewing a property, all parties should wash their hands and avoid touching surfaces where possible. Agents will restrict the number of people on a viewing so that social distancing can be practised, and only those in a client’s immediate household should be there.
Agents can accompany physical viewings and seek to maintain a minimum of 2 metres distance from others where possible. Where social distancing is not possible and the visit is within an enclosed space, face coverings should be considered in line with government guidance.
We will not be able to drive you to appointments for the moment.
All parties viewing a property should wash their hands with soap and water (or hand sanitiser if not available) immediately after entering properties, with internal doors opened and surfaces having been wiped down before entry. Separate towels or paper towels should be used if possible and washed and disposed of safely after use.
