Scottish Government guidance on selling your home during COVID-19

Scottish Government guidance on selling your home during COVID-19

The Scottish Government has issued new guidance for people looking to sell their home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of Monday 29th of June, people in Scotland can move home again.

You can put your home on the market and start to look for properties you want to move into.

You can begin to market your home and our property agents are able to visit your home in order to take photos/videos of the property, in accordance with public health guidelines.  

However, if any member of your household being viewed is showing symptoms or is self-isolating, then all activity must be delayed.

Virtual tours

To help prevent the spread of infection, the government is encouraging people to do the majority of their property searching online and to only physically view those properties which they wish to pursue interest in.

We have invested in the latest technology from the United States to create stunning virtual tours of the homes we sell.

Our Matterport cameras can scan every inch of a room in just a few seconds, creating a 3D simulation that you can walk through using your phone, tablet or computer.

These tours allow buyers to get a real feel for a property without physically entering it, helping sellers to minimise contact with other households.

Surveys / Home Reports

Surveys and Home Reports can also be carried out.  

You should continue to follow health advice and physical distancing while a survey is being carried out.  

The surveyor should also contact you before any home visit to let you know what you should expect and what steps they will be taking to ensure the visit meets health requirements. 

In relation to custom and self-build projects, surveyors can visit and undertake valuations of plots you wish to purchase.
