Appointments to view properties

•Applicants will be encouraged to take a virtual tour of the property, where available, before making a physical appointment.

•  We will only meet applicants at the property.

•  In order to see any property applicants must be well and asymptomatic. We will ask this question in advance.

•   When meeting people outside the office, staff will wear a face mask and gloves. We will supply a face mask and gloves to each applicant if they do not have their own.

•  Owner occupiers or tenants will be asked to leave the property during the viewing.
