COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

April 12, 2021

Following the government’s guidance, our branches are open. 

Normal contact details and opening hours apply.

To ensure the safety of our colleagues, clients and local communities, the following guidelines must be observed in our branches, on viewings and on valuations.

Across all instances, we ask that you remain 2m away from any other person and that you wear a mask.

Please let us know if you are shielding or in self-isolation. If you or a member of your household is exhibiting any symptoms or feeling unwell, please inform us as soon as possible.

These policies will be continually reviewed and amended in line with further government guidelines advice.

You can access the government's latest guidance here.
