Partial re-opening as some restrictions are lifted in Wales

Following the announcement from Welsh Government on Friday 19th June, the property market in Wales is beginning to re-open. This is what it means:

VIEWINGS

Viewings of vacant properties will now be allowed in Wales. This means that a selection of our available properties will be able to be viewed from Monday 22nd onwards. For viewings, we will reqiure all interested parties to complete our Covid-19 Health Assessment that can be found here. We also have in place PPE such as masks, gloves and overshoes while there will also be plenty of hand sanitiser. Viewings will be limited to 15 minutes where possible, with a maximum of two viewers per property with the accompanying agent - all respecting the current 2m social distancing rules.

 

PUTTING YOUR PROPERTY ON THE MARKET

We will now be able to visit your property for valaution purposes and once instructed, to prepare the property for marketing. This invovles the full measure up, photos and video. Having not visited any properties since the lockdown began, we are now working through a backlog of those that we were preparing back in March, and are fully available to take on more enquiries. 

 

SURVEYS AND VALUATIONS

As well as market appraisals mentioned above, we are also able to resume our full service of property valuation and survey. Valuations could include those for Probate, legal purposes and Help to Buy valuations while we continue to offer HomeBuyer Survey Reports. Once again, we are working through a backlog here but are now fully available once again for new bookings.

 

If you want a visit from one of the team for a full market appraisal, or should you need a valuation or HomeBuyer Survey report, please don't hesitate to contact us via email or on 029 2070 2622.
