Safety for Landlords


Getting a market appraisal

  • We value your property virtually, via Zoom, to avoid the need for any physical contact at this stage.
  • When you’re happy we send across all the paperwork to get started.

Get Tenants Excited! 

We need to visit your property to get some great content to help let it. Before we go round we’ll ask you to
confirm that no-one in the household is isolating, has any symptoms or is classed as vulnerable and has been
asked to shield. If it’s not safe we’ll have to delay for now. 

When we arrive we’ll make sure our hands are nice and clean, keep social distancing in mind at all times, and get to work.  If the occupier could open up all internal doors and give surfaces and handles a wipe down before we arrive that would be great.  If they can it would be even better if everyone in the household could take some time out of the house to make distancing easier while we get:

✓ Fantastic photographs
✓ A great description
✓ A detailed floorplan
✓ A video of the property

 

On The Market 

Now you’re on the market, we get to work to find qualified tenants who would love your place.

Your Time to Shine 

  • Where appropriate we’ll arrange an accompanied viewing online
  • It’s a simple video call, hosted by your agent, where you or the occupier show the tenant around your property.
  • We make sure that all tenants are offer-ready before moving on to the next stage.

Before a Physical Viewing

  • We will ask all viewers and everyone in your household to confirm that no-one in their households are isolating, have any coronavirus symptoms or classed as vulnerable and have been asked to shield. If we can’t confirm that we can delay the appointment until it’s safe.
  • If there is anyone classed as vulnerable, but hasn’t been asked to shield, we’ll ask everyone to be particularly careful in terms of clean hands, face coverings and safe social distancing.
  • If at any point you or the viewers aren’t sure about anyone in your households we’ll ask you to consult the NHS 111 online questionnaire.
  • It’s a good idea to give surfaces a clean and wipe down door handles. Opening all interior doors helps to avoid the need to touch anything.

The Viewing

  • We’ll ask that no more than two viewers attend and they have to be from the same household. It shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes.
  • When you open the door please stand well back to let the viewers in.
  • Everyone will be asked to maintain the safe 2 metre distance at all times.
  • Ideally everyone in your household would pop out for a while to make distancing even easier.

After the Viewing

  • Make sure your hands are clean and then give surfaces and handles a wipe down.
  • Sit back, relax and wait for a call from your agent (hopefully with an offer!).
