VIRTUAL VIEWINGS AND INSPECTIONS
For your ease of mind, until there i s a lift in the restrictions we are facing due to Covid 19 we are carrying out virtual property inspections on a quarterly basis . These can be carried out either by zoom or video call. We are able to direct you to enable us to complete a comprehensive over view of the property condition but these calls also give you the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have.
In the event you decide to vacate your property whilst Covid 19 restrictions are in place and we are instructed to commence the marketing of your tenanted property, be assured we have implemented new procedures to protect your well-being and safety. Please do contact
us to discuss further.
From time to time there will be issues with your rental and repairs will have to be made. Please do see the information below to see who you should contact first.
