Quatrefoils are closely monitoring the development and updates relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak. We have sought after guidance from both the RICS and the Government’s guidance on “working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19)” more specifically, the safe working practices in surveying peoples homes during the pandemic. Guidance can be found at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/homes
Here are some key considerations and working practices that we have adopted:-
- Our surveyors are knowledgeable on working safely in people’s homes and ensure regular communication and transparency with households prior to arrival.
- We maintained social distancing practices during our inspections along with appropriate PPE.
- Hygiene and antibacterial measures implemented between surveys.
- Regular communication with occupiers prior to inspection to ensure no symptoms of the virus have been evident from either party a minimum of 7 days prior to inspection. We will also ensure to check that occupiers are not self isolating and are in agreement for our attendance ahead of our visit.
