|The property market is still OPEN for business. |
We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these challenging times.
With the new January lockdown in place, we wanted to share the relevant information relating to our industry:
Estate and letting agents & removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings.
You can still move home. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving to a new house unless necessary. Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, including advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering.
It is suggested that you find digital or remote alternatives where possible such as video or phone consultations.
We have decided to close our office and all departments will work remotely from home with immediate effect. This will reduce risk for our team and our clients and will enable business continuity.
We are closely monitoring the guidance of the UK government regarding the spread of the virus. Like all companies, we at Townsends are implementing everything in our power to minimise the risk of contracting or passing on Covid-19.
Please be assured it is our priority to help your property transactions to be completed as close to normal as possible while we all work through these difficult times. Our team is available to answer any of your questions about our procedures.
For all our managed properties contractors will only attend for emergency issues such as no heating or hot water, leaks etc. Any issues not classed as an emergency will need to be put on hold for the short term. However, property management will still be fully contactable via phone or e-mail.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries
