COVID-19: An Update for North Oxfordshire & South Northants Landlords & Tenants Cherry Lets

We are delighted that Cherry Lets have been given the green light by the Housing Minister to recommence viewings, however, we realise that we also have a social responsibility beyond that of being your local letting agent and recognise that as a landlord or tenant, you will have concerns given the current situation with COVID-19.

We want to reassure you that the team at Cherry Lets will be following the Government’s health and safety guidelines thoroughly and ultimately will always ensure the wellbeing of our clients, our team, and our community comes first.

At the time of writing, it has been announced that restrictions around property viewings have been lifted. However, COVID-19 has not gone away and as yet there is no vaccine, so we will be carrying out our business in an extremely safe and highly-managed way to ensure our clients and staff are protected at all times.

Viewings
We are regularly reviewing updates on viewing guidelines from the Housing Minister, and will always ensure these guidelines are followed to the letter. Currently we will be adhering to the following:

Social distancing (2 metres) will be observed at all times.

……….Our staff will remain outside………

We will ask that you view a property virtually – via a video prior to an in-person viewing.

Viewing Limits: All viewings will be limited to either one viewing per property per day OR viewings will be scheduled apart, for example, with a delay between each viewing.

Time Limits: The time viewers spend inside a property will be limited to an absolute maximum of 30 minutes.

Viewing Numbers: We will allow a maximum of two people inside a property, whilst our staff remain outside.

Contactless Viewings: We will leave cupboards and doors open so that viewers to the property do not need to touch them. Viewers will be asked not to touch surfaces unnecessarily.

Health Declaration: Viewers will be required to answer a series of health questions, prior to a viewing commencing,
