NicheCom will continue to undertake property visits in line with all of Public Health England’s recommendations following our Safe System of Working guidance.
Property visits will only be carried out if the photographer is well and has no symptoms of COVID-19 (however mild). No visits will take place to any household where an occupant has received a positive diagnosis, has any symptoms, or is self-isolating.
In line with the latest guidance, photographers will wear facemasks, be washing hands and sanitising equipment regularly.
We will be requesting that staff maintain a sensible social distance (1 metre plus) for the duration of a visit.
When discussing an appointment with an occupier/agent, they will check that no occupants are self-isolating, displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, and/or have received a positive diagnosis. This also applies when collecting keys from a branch.
At appointment booking stage, we will advise how to prepare for a visit so that minimal items have to be moved on the day.
