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.
Photographers will still be wearing PPE upon request, be washing hands and sanitising equipment regularly.
From July 19th 2021, we 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 ask if vendors wish PPE to be worn and advise how to prepare for a visit so that minimal items have to be moved on the day.
