You will have no doubt seen in the news that Covid-19 rules are being tightened, as the new Omicrom variant of the virus has been identified and cases continue to rise.  With this in mind, we would like to remind everyone of our Covid-19 Policy.  As keeping our staff and the public safe is our top priority.  We ask that anyone visiting our Sittingbourne office wears a mask and uses the hand sanitiser provided with immediate effect.

Covid-19 Safe Viewings

We will continue to only do viewings with buyers who are in a position to make an offer and buy the property.  To keep everyone safe, we keep viewings to a minimum, just allowing serious buyers to view.  If you property is not sold, or you cannot demonstrate that you have funds in place to purchase the property, you will not be able to attend a viewing.

On the day of the viewing

  • We will require you to confirm you are showing no symptoms of Covid-19
  • Viewers will have to provide their own PPE and will be required to wear a mask at all times
  • We will be working to strict times at the viewings. Unfortunately if you are late for your viewing you will be unable to view the property.
  • Only two adults will be able to view the property. If you have children, we can show one adult at a time while the other remains with the children in the car.
  • You should avoid touching surfaces wherever possible, wash your hands regularly and/or use hand sanitiser. If you have no child care options and require small children accompanying you on viewings, please advise us prior to the viewing to ensure we have made safe provisions for this.

Covid-19 Safe Virtual Valuations

Harrisons Homes offer a comprehensive socially distanced valuation.  You are asked to complete a form, giving as much information as possible about your property.  You can also upload photos.  Then one of our team will contact you within 24 hours, with our valuation.  After this, we will not contact you on a regular basis asking if you want us to market your home.  You will be subscribed to our mailing list that will send regular market updates. You can unsubscribe from this at any time.

Keep safe at home

If you are thinking of selling or looking to buy your next home. You can make a start from the safety of your own home.  In addition to the virtual valuation tool Harrisons have created a home finders service called Heads Up Property Alerts which notifies interested buyers of relevant properties that are new to the market, BEFORE the are listed on the property portals.
