Alert Level 2 has meant the easing of restrictions and a return to business as usual for our property managers, with some changes:

  • Routine inspections can take place during Alert Level 2 with additional hygiene practices and physical distancing.
  • Open homes of vacant properties are allowed with additional hygiene and contact tracing practices, and physical distancing of 2m between bubbles to be maintained at all times.
  • For property viewings, if a property is tenanted, the consent of the tenant is required to hold a rental viewing. Tenant permission cannot be unreasonably withheld, as per the Residential Tenancies Act 1986.
  • Repairs and maintenance can be performed, and tradespeople will comply with health requirements and any Government guidance issued pertaining to their industry.

Our offices are open for business with additional hygiene, physical distancing and contact tracing practices in place during Alert Level 2.
