We hope you are all well.
As you will be aware, we are now in the midst of the COVID-19 health crisis. As a locally based business we are continually monitoring the ongoing situation and the Government and Public Health England’s guidance, to ensure that we are following the advice for safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our colleagues at Waymark, our clients and those who visit us and our properties.
We remain determined to maintain our service and support to both sellers and buyers, landlords and tenants and, at the time of going to print, our Faringdon office is open for our usual working hours and so long as we are not instructed to close and so long as the health of our staff allows it, this will not change.
We continue to welcome visitors to our office but ask that they make themselves aware of the Government guidelines in respect of social distancing and check whether they fall within the scope of such guidance. If in doubt please ring us first, we will always be very happy to further discuss your property queries: it may well be that we are able to come and visit you instead.
Looking at the positives, we are fortunate to be in an industry sector where the vast majority of the buying, selling and leasing process can be done remotely, if needed.
The main element which is unavoidable is the need for buyers to view properties. However, even on this we can further manage this aspect to help reduce risks to all parties through a combination of some new marketing approaches which we will be trialling and in taking sensible and pragmatic precautions, reflecting the Government and PHE advice.
We are in direct contact with our clients with further details on this but if you are not already a client but are considering a property move or letting, please do make contact with us to discuss your plans when we can outline how we aim to manage these aspects.
In the meanwhile we look forward to keeping things as close to ‘business as usual’ as is possible.
Clearly, we are in a changing world, but we remain of the view that if you wish or need to move home then we will continue to support you in the best way we can.
All the best of health
Jenny Preece MRICS,
