Chester is still open for business!

Following the latest UK Government COVID-19 guidelines (04/01/21), the housing market can remain open and home buyers/sellers can continue to move where existing sales are already underway.

How does it work?

Those in the process of looking for a new home can still arrange viewings, although several things should be considered before making such arrangements, such as, purchasing position, buyer location, using the virtual viewing facility.

We have therefore put the following criteria in place to protect both you and us, whilst continuing to effectively market your home to potential buyers:

First virtual viewing

All buyers can use our virtual tour facility available via the property advertisement on all websites and subscribed property portals. Our virtual property tours use the latest cutting-edge technology and are fully interactive, with the aim of making it feel as though you have stepped inside a property to view it in real life.

Second viewing (in person)

Only those buyers in a position to proceed (first time buyers, those under offer and cash buyers) will be able to request a physical viewing of your property and must confirm by reply email that they have read the viewing guidelines prior to attending the appointment.

Seller confirmation

All sellers will have to confirm acceptance of the viewing and viewing guidelines prior to the appointment.

Accompanied viewings

The property must be vacated by the occupants at least 10 minutes before the viewing appointment. If the viewers arrive early, please do not admit them into your property. A representative of Fearnalls will admit the viewers having first explained the procedure: face coverings to be worn at all times; shoes removed or shoe coverings to be worn; strict no-touch policy; only two people viewing at one time.

During the viewing

We ask that all doors are left open prior to the viewing taking place, including loft hatches, we will open any cupboards or additional doors using anti-bacterial wipes.

After the viewing

Our viewer will send you a text to confirm that the viewing is complete and the property is empty.

Seller Viewings

If you opt to conduct your own property viewings, we ask that you follow these guidelines and confirm in your viewing acceptance email that you will adhere to the procedures outlined above.

Please be safe and sensible

We aim to provide a safe but friendly approach to protect the well-being of all parties and we are grateful for your co-operation with this. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call on 01244 340 402.
