The end of restrictions: Will agents make changes?

Monday 19th July marked the turning point where life could begin to return to how it used to be, pre-pandemic. Following 19 months of challenges and uncertainty, life before the outbreak has become a distant memory. But as we all breathe a sigh of relief that restrictions may now be behind us, not much appears to have changed. Many are still opting to wear face masks and adhere to social distancing. While these safety measures are no longer enforced, thousands are choosing to keep them, at least for now.

What does this mean for the property industry?

Estate agents, mortgage brokers, and financial advisors who could work from home are no longer required to do so. They can now return to their offices and their previous business operations can resume. Face coverings are no longer required to be worn by employees or customers, in offices, or during property viewings. Social distancing is also no longer to be enforced, with no limit on viewings.

Is the market embracing the changes?

Businesses are now able to welcome their staff back to their offices. For estate agents, mortgage brokers, and financial advisors, working from home has been something many have adjusted to. While face coverings and social distancing are no longer legally required, they can still be seen widely across the industry. From offices to property viewings and more, agents are opting to continue to put safety first.

Has your business lifted restrictions?

What was nicknamed ‘Freedom Day’ has so far not had the impact that was predicted. As many of us continue to use precautions, we want to know what changes you have made in your offices.

  • Have you welcomed your team back to the office?
  • Are you continuing to social distance with staff and/or customers?
  • Will you be keeping face masks or other PPE in your business operations?
  • How long will you be adhering to precautions?
