Physical viewings are able to go ahead however will only be arranged after virtual viewings. Viewings will be limited to a amximum of 4 people to attend.
Any applicants wanting to view a property, must wear a face covering.
Do I still need to pay my rent?
You will still be expected to pay rents during this time. If you are a working professional experiencing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 outbreak, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will liaise with the landlord regarding putting a payment plan in to place.
For any students who have decided to move back home to parents/guardians houses, your rent will still be payable as your tenancy agreement is still in place. At the moment student loans are due to still be paid on the next instalment therefore we do not expect there to be an issue paying your rent as planned.
What if I am due to move in to a new property?
Government guidance has allowed for move ins and move outs to go ahead. If you are moving in to a property, you will be contacted via email to explain the process and what is expected of you at your move in appointment.
