‘Government set to announce back to work guidance for estate agents this week.’

This follows the shock of yesterday’s 50-plus page document on return to work guidance which failed to address any estate agency related issues. EA Today Reports…

Measures under consideration included masks, hand sanitiser and alcohol wipes being required during viewings, which could be limited to two people plus the agent.

Other measures under discussion could mean owners or tenants are asked to vacate the building and those viewing would be asked not to touch surfaces. Also under discussion was the banning of open house events and limiting viewings to 20 minutes.

Do you think this is a good idea? Would you welcome the return of some sort of working property market in North Devon? Is it too early or should they have done this sooner?
