Retirement lender Just has confirmed that it will recommence physical valuations in England as of today.
Physical inspections can be carried in properties where the residents are not self-isolating or showing symptoms, where social distancing guidance can be followed or where the customer is happy to wait outside while the surveyor inspects the interior.
Surveyors will be ensuring the safety of our customers when preparing to visit a property and will be provided with personal protection equipment (PPE).
Just said: “Surveyors are required to follow social distancing rules to ensure the mutual safety of our customers and the surveyors.
“When making the appointment with our customer an assessment will be carried to establish clear and safe inspection procedures.
“Just will work with our surveyor partner to commence the booking of appointments with customers waiting for physical inspections where it is safe to do so from Monday 18 May.”
