Last night the Prime Minister announced the third National Lockdown in England. We would like to reassure our clients we shall continue to operate, and we will always adhere to Government advice.
Seddons consider safety to be paramount, and we would encourage everyone to ensure that they follow the National Lockdown Guidance closely to protect others and themselves. Government information is updated daily and will provide all the very latest and best advice.
In order to operate in the safest manner, we continue to take a responsible, socially distanced stance and limit unnecessary contact. We urge clients to contact us via email and telephone; essential office visits are by appointment only.
Where possible we will be carrying out property appointments on a case by case basis, and in accordance with our Coronavirus Policy.
If it is not acceptable for an appointment at the property now, we would be pleased to offer a ‘Virtual Viewing’ or ‘Virtual Valuation’, with no visit to the property or personal contact.
If you would like to discuss these options, please get in touch with your local Seddons’ branch.
The Government encourage virtual viewings to be carried out in the first instance, take a look at our properties with our amazing virtual walkthough and our video tours!
If you have your property on the market and would like to know more about our fully immersive 360-degree virtual walkthrough tours, or would like to arrange a video for your property, you’ll find the details here.
The Government have recommended that in-person property viewings should only take place when buyers are seriously considering a property.
During property viewings we recommend;
Estate and letting agents together with removals companies can continue to operate, however, Government guidelines do state that people outside of your household/support bubble should not help with moving unless absolutely necessary.
The positive message is that you can still move home, as long Government guidelines are followed.
When arranging appointments for you, our staff will enquire about the following, your understanding and cooperation will be much appreciated:
Have you, any family member or occupant of the subject property showed any symptoms of the Coronavirus in line with Government and NHS guidelines, or in your view, a Common Cold? If yes, see *note below.
Are you over 70?
Do you, any relation or occupant of the property have any underlying health issues which may make you or them more susceptible to the effects of Coronavirus as noted in the Government and NHS guidelines?
*If you, a family member or someone with whom you have contact is displaying any Coronavirus or Common Cold symptoms, please notify Seddons in the first instance, regardless of the severity of symptoms, and do not attend or arrange any appointments with Seddons, their staff or any party introduced by them.
Whether you are buying, selling or renting, follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering.
If you do have any concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your local Seddons branch.
