Where your preferred office is yet to reopen we are covering appointments remotely.

The Governments in England, Scotland & Wales have confirmed that subject to a number of restrictions individuals from the same household can view a property they are interested in. Virtual viewings should be used whenever possible to help limit the number of viewings you need to arrange. Prior to the appointment we will provide you with details of how it will be conducted and what is required to help keep everyone safe.
In Wales you can only view a property if it is unoccupied and has been empty for at least 3 days, or it has been thoroughly cleaned. It is not possible to view properties that are occupied. Please contact us for further details, including the availability of virtual viewings.
