Property Market Update: We’re Open!

Hello all and Happy New Year! Following the government’s announcement yesterday evening, you may be experiencing a strange sense of De Ja Vu.

Bourne are pleased to confirm we are open for business, although closed to the public unless by prior appointment. We will be following strict covid guidelines and safety measures.

Understandably, you may have many unanswered questions when it comes to what you can and can’t do during lockdown, and whilst we don’t have the ability to answer all of those questions, we can certainly help you with any property market-related queries you may have.

CAN I MOVE HOME?

Absolutely! The government announced all house move activities such as valuations, viewings etc are to continue in England.

CAN VALUATIONS AND VIEWINGS TAKE PLACE?

Yes (under strict covid safety guidelines), Bourne are still in a position to offer actual valuations and viewings under the government guidelines, which includes social distancing, allowing fresh air to circulate within the property, and wearing a face covering and gloves.

WHAT IF I’M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH HOME VISITS?

Not to worry – If you’re not quite ready for visitors and would like to take advantage of our virtual valuations and viewing, do please contact us.

CAN MY FAMILY & FRIENDS ASSIST ME WITH MOVING?

This all depends. People outside your household or support bubble should not help you move unless absolutely necessary, however, estate agents and removal companies are on hand to help you during your home moving process.

DO YOU HAVE SAFETY GUIDELINES IN PLACE?

The safety of our staff and clients is paramount which is why we have instated detailed health and safety guidelines. A copy of these guidelines is available upon request.

For those that are in the process of or considering buying, selling, letting, or renting, please do not hesitate to contact your local Bourne branch for further advice and guidance. Bourne will be able to advise you on our current working practices in line with Government advice.

We cannot wait to welcome you all back into our offices and get back to assisting you with all your property needs. In the meantime, keep safe and well.
