All viewings should take place by appointment and only involve members of a single household.
When viewing a property, all parties should wash their hands and avoid touching surfaces where possible.

The property must have all doors open prior to the viewing taking place and if possible, the current occupants must leave the property for the duration of the viewing.
Everyone involved must wash their hands prior to the viewing and handwashing facilities should be made available with separate paper towels if possible.
