Private Appointments For Inspections
The Government has not banned rental inspections as part of the COVID-19 stage 2 shutdown.
Private inspections by agents and (owners) with individual buyers are not banned at this stage, but agents [property owners] should ensure high levels of hygiene in line with DHHS’s advice on cleaning and disinfecting.
When conducting a property inspection, we recommend vendors and agents use online inspections or private appointments for viewings.
If you must attend a property, you must:
Obey social distancing rules, including standing at least 1.5 metres apart
Practice good personal hygiene including:
* cleaning your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser
* covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or a flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing
* ensuring properties (particularly high traffic areas such as doors, cupboards, wardrobe handles and stair rails) are clean and disinfected.
