Keeping our clients and staff and safe remains to be at the top of our agenda. With the continued need to social distance, we will continue to provide our unrivalled services whilst maintaining a safe working environment.
The Guidelines we adhere to are as follows (subject to change with any new government advice).
We will arrive at the agreed time, before entering your property we will use alcohol spray on our hands which will be kept in every valuers car. We will also wear disposable gloves.
On entering the property it would be good to have an initial conversation about your hopes and what your intentions are. This will be done whilst remaining at least 2 meters apart, if its sunny we can always sit outside! The valuer will carry out their valuation in the normal way of taking notes and measurements and ensuring not to touch any surfaces. Once this is complete we will have a further chat (still at a social distance) about value of your home and what marketing strategy best suits your needs. Alternatively, we can leave after we take our notes and email our thoughts to you the same day, if that is your preference. Masks will be worn at the request of any vendor.
