Protocol for conducting viewings

Protocol for conducting viewings, updated September 2021

This protocol applies to second-hand properties for sale or rent as set out by The Joint Sector Protocol for Property Services Providers 2021 during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please confirm the following to us in writing prior to organising a viewing:

  1. We will require confirmation that those parties attending a viewing are not displaying Covid symptoms before the viewing commences.
  2. Please confirm or not if you have been abroad or had symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You are aware of the HSE guidelines with regards to social distancing.

Owen Reilly protocols for arranging a viewing both before, during and after:

  • We will require names and numbers for each viewing party.
  • We will greet you outside the property.
  • There are no limits on the number of people within the viewing party attending viewings, however viewings must adhere to physical distancing.
  • Face coverings must be worn during viewings.
  • Use of hand sanitiser is recommended ahead of viewings.
  • Please arrive on time. You will have a set period to view on your own which will be advised in advance.
  • Please avoid touching surfaces where possible.
  • Please advise upon leaving where you touched a surface.
  • No hand shaking.
  • Please maintain a two meter distance from our team member.
  • Toilets are not to be used.
  • All properties will have VR walkthrough tours on our website to reduce the requirement for follow up viewings.
