Commercial Agency - Open for Viewings
You will have seen in the press that the Government has announced estate agents are allowed back to work with immediate effect.
This is great news, although like many others in our sector, we have been working away in the background, talking to prospective tenants and buyers as well as conducting virtual or remote viewings where possible.
In the first few weeks of lockdown enquiries for commercial property were very limited, but these have gradually picked up, especially in the past 10 days. We will now begin to undertake physical inspections and viewings again while remaining mindful of the need to protect our staff, clients and applicants as well as existing occupiers.
As we shared in last week's message, we have devised a system where we can undertake inspections and viewings following a risk assessment with PPE where necessary. This will require other parties present to work within our policy guidelines.
We aim to be as flexible as possible to ensure that all applicant requests for viewings are undertaken promptly. Still, there are a number of logistical challenges that we all currently face. Given restrictions of travel by public transport our staff will be travelling by foot, bike and car. Where appropriate, we may ask if on-site parking can be made available if arriving by car.
We are, and have been, very much open for business and hope to fulfil your expectations of us as soon as possible. We will be in touch with each viewing and look forward to coming to you with offers shortly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
In the meantime, we hope you are keeping safe.
