Government advice on home moving during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreakBack to News
The latest update for people moving between private residential home was released on 13th May, and the key points are listed below. We will be making every effort to follow the guidelines to try and arrange surveys following these guidelines.
Your surveyor can undertake surveys of the property you wish to purchase.
Surveyors should not enter a property where a member of the household is showing symptoms of coronavirus or self-isolating.
Where possible we encourage inspections to take place by appointment only, with one person visiting the property at any time.
Surveyors should follow government guidance for professionals working in other people’s homes and guidance on social distancing.
If your home is being surveyed, you should ensure the surveyor has access to all the parts of the property they need to inspect, and make efforts to minimise contact with the surveyor, for example by staying in another room whilst they are inspecting your home.
