Our Response to Covid-19
Company news : 16 - 11 - 20
As England entered a second lockdown on 5th November 2020, in a bid to curb rising coronavirus cases, you may well have wondered what impact it would have on our local property market and perhaps your potential purchase or sale.
In Farnham and across much of the UK, the property market has shown far more resilience to the second national lockdown than it did to the first.
In the spring we saw the entire housing market, from viewings to home moves, put on hold for seven weeks. However, this gave our team time to implement safety measures, making our office a Covid-secure environment.
Ahead of the second lockdown the Government confirmed: “Buying, selling, and renting a home can continue, in a Covid-secure way, as it has in recent months. Estate and letting agents can operate, show homes and sales suites can remain open and property viewings, mortgage valuations and surveys can take place.”
This has enabled our team at Andrew Lodge Estate Agents to continue marketing property and coordinating property viewings for buyers and vendors, with the safety of our staff and clients being our top priority.
We are following official Government Covid-19 guidance and ensuring the best possible safety measures are in place. We have taken steps to make our Farnham office Covid-secure, operating a ‘by appointment only’ system so that we can regulate the people in our office.
We have a system to track who enters our office in case contact is required for a test and trace situation and no one should enter the premises if they are showing symptoms or have been advised to self-isolate.
Before any viewings take place we are speaking with vendors and prospective buyers to run through our viewing safety measures. We work out viewing plans to suit everyone and insist that safety measures are adhered to.
We regularly review our measures which are outlined on our website HERE.
