Covid-19 Update – Viewings

Covid-19 Update – Viewings
Further to the latest Government guidelines, we are now in a position to allow in person viewings as of Monday 29th June 2020.
Our viewing agent, George, will be back on Wednesday 1st July and I am sure he is excited to see you all!
During lockdown, we have been producing video tours of vacant properties which was allowing potential tenants to view a “snapshot” of the property. However, a video can be deceiving, so we are all delighted at the news that viewings can go ahead from next week following strict Government guidelines.
It will come as no surprise that viewings, for the foreseeable future, will not be carried out to the volume as they were before lockdown, which we are sure you will understand.
We will allocate 2 viewing slots per day to each property and we are allowing one person (or a couple from the same household) to view the property at one given time.
Our viewing agent will arrive at the property before the viewing time and open all doors, windows and switch lights etc on and will remain outside whilst the viewing takes place. The viewers will be advised not to touch any surfaces where possible and are encouraged beforehand to bring their own sanitiser and to wear gloves and masks at their own discretion. Viewers will be emailed the video tour initially which will hopefully cutdown unnecessary viewings. Our viewing agent will also have the correct PPE.
It goes without saying, that if you are unwell or have been in contact with anyone showing signs of Covid-19, please do not view any of our properties.
Hopefully this will be the start of some “normality” to all of us and businesses alike.
All our available properties are on our website www.sb-pm.co.uk and can be booked online.

Coronavirus Update from Struan Baptie Property Management Ltd

As you will be aware we are in the midst of an outbreak of the coronavirus Covid-19. The Scottish Government has recommended that businesses take steps to allow its staff to work from home to reduce personal contact and to help reduce the spread of the virus.

We do not wish to take any risks with the health and wellbeing of our team and to that end, we are allowing staff to work from home. This will have some implications on our business for all our clients and tenants.

If you have a general enquiry please email contact@sb-pm.co.uk or if your query is in regards to rent please email melissa@sb-pm.co.uk

Of course if you know the email address of the person you wish to get in touch with, please email them directly. If you have the direct dial number of the team member you wish to speak to, this will forward to that person’s mobile phone. We urge you to communicate by email in the first instance. It will most likely be answered more quickly.

We aim to remain fully operational throughout this period. Rent processing will continue as normal and we will continue to deal with emergency repairs and maintenance and all aspects of property management. Routine property inspections, viewings and new tenancy agreements during this period will be postponed to a future date.

I trust that you understand why these precautions are necessary and appreciate your support.
Kind Regards,

Struan Baptie
Director
