On Tuesday evening the government announced a relaxation of some of the restrictions relating to the housing market which had previously been imposed. At John Goodwin we have successfully continued to deal with all enquiries throughout the lock down period and this continues to be the case. For the time being our office doors will remain closed and enquiries will continue to be dealt with by telephone and email, anyone requiring an appointment to meet can make arrangements in this way.
We have now received a huge increase in the volume of enquiries and many requests for viewings which we will endeavour to accommodate. During the lockdown we have successfully concluded a number of lettings and sales have continued to be agreed. The property market is certainly still alive and healthy.
VIEWING SAFELY. There are strict guidelines on how viewings need to be conducted and we will be applying these in all cases. As a result it will not be possible to conduct all viewings at this stage, the safety of our clients, applicants and staff remains our prime concern:
A health questionnaire will be forwarded to all prospective viewers and must be completed before any viewing can be arranged. Viewers can be assured that all vendors and staff will have been through the same procedure.
Anyone showing symptoms or having been asked to self isolate should not make any viewing requests.
We will happily prepare a video tour as a first viewing and a large number of these are already available, please ask.
When attending a viewing please be prompt and as swift as possible, no more than 2 persons should attend. Please bring suitable PPE, face masks and gloves are recommended, if these are not available please indicate this when making your appointment.Social distancing guidelines will be enforced.
Please follow safety guidelines immediately after the viewing.
PROPERTY VALUATIONS. We have continued to provide a valuation service throughout the lockdown period and we are now happy to undertake home inspections whilst following safety guidelines. Remote valuations can also be provided. We now have a large number of properties which will hopefully be launched into the market in the very near future. Please telephone or e mail and we will happily make the necessary arrangements and advise you as to the current market conditions.
PROPERTY LETTINGS. The lettings market has remained busy throughout the last 8 weeks and this continues to be the case with many tenants desperately looking for suitable properties. Whether you are a landlord seeking advice or a tenant anxious to find suitable accommodation please contact our lettings teams.
MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL, STAY SAFE AND WELL.
