The Government have passed The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020.

Landlords and agents will need to ensure electrical installation inspections and testing are carried out for all new tenancies in England from 1 July 2020 or from 1 April 2021 for existing tenancies. 

Following on from the guidance given to the property sector for safely starting up again, we wanted to update you further.

In relation to viewings, you may or may not be aware that initially a virtual viewing needs to be available to clients online and if further interest is shown, a viewing in person can go ahead, subject to strict protocols. Health and safety forms need to be completed before a viewing by a client to ensure specific COVID-19 related questions are being asked and subject to sufficient answers, a viewing can take place.

With valuations, the same forms needs to be completed and then we can attend the property to value with social distancing rules in place.

If you want to enter your local branch an appointment will need to be made and you must continue to following social distancing guidelines. Full teams wont be in every office straight away as we work to make each office function as safe as possible.
