Whilst most landlords accept that it is unreasonable for them, or their agent, to frequently visit their rental property while tenants are in place there are occasions where, sometimes by law, pre- arranged routine visits will be required.
These help to ensure the property complies with regulatory requirements, is in a good state of repair and condition and that the tenants are looking after it, as they agreed they would.
At the current time, however, where transmission of the coronavirus is of growing concern, visits of this kind may raise concerns and it’s for this reason that Your Move is now providing Safe Routine Visit Guidance to their tenants. This should not only safeguard their health and well-being (and that of the visiting Your Move agent) but also provide reassurance to landlords, who have opted for a Fully Managed service, that their property remains compliant, safe and cared for.
The Guidance provides practical and easy to follow instructions to tenants in preparation for a routine visit as well as advice about how to reduce the transmission of the virus during and after it. And, it all comes with the comfort of knowing that, because their landlord has opted for a Fully Managed service, they can also contact their local Your Move branch or central Lettings Hub for help and advice about any concerns they may have.
Overall Your Move is committed to keeping our customers and colleagues safe during the current crisis, as our latest Coronavirus Update confirms, and this latest guidance is just another way of demonstrating this.
Should you require any further information, or be interested to find out about our Fully Managed Service, please contact your local Your Move branch or book a free rental valuation.
