Covid-19 restrictions

We are now able to arrange viewings and valuations. Due to the pandemic, sensible precautions and conditions are now in place, to protect all parties. Before a viewing is arranged we would ask for any potential buyer to have seen the property externally(if possible), be familiar with the area and to have undertaken as much research as possible. Phone us and ask anything. Let us know your likes and dislikes and we will do our best to guide you. We do not want to place at risk our vendors or ourselves, to any unnecessary contact. Ideally viewers should be in a position to proceed and for this property to be what they are looking for, not simply to get an idea with a future view of possibly moving. If any person is 'at risk', had recent contact with anyone showing cold like symptoms, or in any way feels unwell, please inform us so a decision can be made. All viewings will be accompanied. Please wait away from the front door for us to arrive. Please bring hand sanitiser, if possible disposable gloves and face masks. We will open up and when ready ask you to step inside. We will all keep a 2 meter distance. If you wish to see inside a cupboard etc, ask us to open it. Do not touch anything. If you accidently touch anything please inform us so we can disinfect. Once the viewing has taken place please exit the property immediately. We would ask you to then phone us with questions and feedback. We look forward to seeing you.
