Tips for safe viewings

  • 18 June, 2020

Now that the property market is open again here in England, viewings can be carried out with a few safety measures in place to keep us all safe.  To save time, mix-ups or any disappointment here are a few tips for a successful viewing.

Virtual viewings/video tours

If available, this is a great way to get a feel for the property and be sure it’s worth seeing in person. You may be able to tell whether the house ticks the right boxes for you or not. If it doesn’t, you’ll save yourself and the seller time and trouble.

Confirming the health of sellers, viewers & staff

If you or anyone in your household has displayed any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 2 weeks you must notify us immediately so we can cancel the viewing.  You should not be out viewing or in public if this is the case.  When confirming a viewing with you we will also confirm the health of our staff member and the household of where the viewing is to take place.


You should wear gloves for the viewing if possible, if not, you should sanitise your hands immediately before entering the property and refrain from touching anything. Social distancing must be observed at all times and therefore it would be safer to limit to 1 person inside the property at a time.


Any questions about the property should take place outside, once the viewing tour has finished or over the telephone once you are back home.

Please read the Government’s advice here on staying safe during home moving.
