COVID-19 Working Safely Guidelines - Considerations for Surveying Occupied Properties
Before our surveyor attends a property, the residents should be aware of a list of preconditions that must be met and agreed to before the survey takes place. These must be observed during the process of inspection.
Instruction, agreements, conditions, and any terms of engagement will be communicated to the occupant and the party instructing the surveyor (if different). This correspondence will be retained by the surveyor. If the occupant fails to acknowledge their responsibilities, or is unable or unwilling to observe their obligations, the survey should not take place.
The residents or occupants must be prepared to strictly observe the Government’s guidance on social distancing.
For the duration of the surveyors visit, the occupants could be asked to either leave the building or wait in the garden. Alternatively, social distancing rules should be observed.
The occupants will be asked to open all internal doors, access hatches and void access points (To areas where the surveyor will need to go) before the surveyor enters the property.
If the investigation requires any opening up to determine the cause or extent of a defect, this should be done by the occupant before the surveyor attends site. If this is not possible and opening up has to be performed by the surveyor or other trades, then a separate risk assessment may be necessary to determine if and how these operations can be performed safely.
Before attending the property, we will contact the occupant by email or telephone and ensure they are aware of the surveyors’ requirements in preparation for their visit.
In line with Government advice, we would not advise visiting any property to undertake a survey if the building is occupied by people who are 75 years old or older (regardless of medical conditions) or under 70 but have an underlying health condition. Similarly, if occupants are ill, have tested positive for COVID-19 or have recently displayed symptoms regardless how slight, any non-urgent visits should be delayed.
