Government advice on home moving during coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

The Government guidance is to avoid non-essential or unnecessary appointments.

On requesting for a viewing, a prospective viewer must:

Be in a position to go ahead and buy (no house to sell, finance in place)
If you need to sell your existing home and have not accepted an offer, then unfortunately there is a chance you will be unable to view at this time, subject to the property owner's instructions.

Satisfy themselves that it is the correct property to view and have a strong declared interest after researching:
i. Street view
ii. Photos
iii. Video (if applicable)
iv. Viewed from outside, i.e. drive by/walked along street

Declare that they do not have coronavirus or symptoms themselves or in their household

Declare if anyone in their household is 'shielding' or has returned to the UK in the last 14 days from a country on the quarantine list.

Provide own PPE i.e. gloves or sanitiser and facemask

Understand no group viewings or Open House viewings will be conducted.

Max two people to view from same household and must be the buyer, not a representative

Not to bring children under 18 to view, unless absolutely necessary

On arrival wait in the car until approached by viewing staff at distance

Exit car and hand sanitise or wear disposable gloves. Put on facemask.

Viewer must not touch anything. Must follow staff at 2m distance and walk through property.

Where vendor/occupant is showing the consumer around, they must be advised to follow these procedures.

Discussions to be conducted in the garden or street observing 2m distancing.  

Please be aware that some photographs used in our particulars are obtained using a wide-angle lens. For offers to be submitted in the best light, the majority of vendors require us to confirm buyers have been financially qualified. We will require a Mortgage Certificate or Agreement In Principle (A.I.P.) and proof of deposit or cash. This information will be treated confidentially and will not be seen by any other party.

In order to comply with the above Regulations, an intending purchaser will be required to provide official I.D; proof of address, evidence of funding and source of deposit clearly showing the name of the account holder. If funds are being provided by a third party i.e. family, we will require the same from them too. We may officially verify these documents.

The information given in these particulars is intended to help you decide whether you wish to view this property and to avoid wasting your time in viewing unsuitable properties. We have tried to make sure that these particulars are accurate, but to a large extent we have to rely on what the seller tells us about the property. We do not check every single piece of information ourselves as the cost of doing so would be prohibitive and we do not wish to unnecessarily add to the cost of moving house. Once you find the property you want to buy, you will need to carry out more investigations into the property than it is practical or reasonable for an estate agent to do when preparing sales particulars. For example, we have not carried out any kind of survey of the property to look for structural defects and would advise any homebuyer to obtain a surveyors report before exchanging contracts. If you do not have your own surveyor, we would be pleased to recommend one. We have not checked whether any equipment in the property (such as central heating) is in working order and would advise homebuyers to check this. You should also instruct a solicitor to investigate all legal matters relating to the property (e.g. title, planning permission etc) as these are specialist matters in which estate agents are not qualified. Your solicitor will also agree with the seller what items (e.g. carpets, curtains etc) will be included in the sale.
