We are awaiting new guidance from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. Until this is released, the following guidance still stands for the sector; https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/876500/Consolidated_Landlord_and_Tenant_Guidance_COVID_and_the_PRS_v4.2.pdf

At this stage, we would recommend that you make plans to prepare your business for coming out of lockdown.

Ensure to keep in mind the following when preparing for coming out of lockdown, whenever that may be;

  • Social distancing (staff, clients and the community)
  • Work from home if it’s possible
  • Only use public transport if you really need to, avoid where possible
  • Make preparations with the information that we have now – especially agents, think about protective equipment, cleaning, sanitising, staff hours, rotation, distancing within the workplace, travel etc

SWLA will keep members informed with any important updates.
