Surveys during Covid-19

This brief method statement is designed to help keep the occupier and surveyor during the Covid-19 pandemic

Inform us if anyone had Covert-19 or has at the time of instructing the inspection or just before is to be carried out.

Prior to entering the property, we must know the location of the problem, to allow safe assessment.

Please email any documents relating defects prior to arriving. Photos would also help.

A pre-site video meeting would be beneficial.  I can use What’s app video calls for multiple persons I suggest Google meet (video conferencing) works on smartphones and desktops and is secure.

The surveyor will wear overalls, disposable gloves and face mask during the time of the inspection.

The occupier must keep the social distance at all times or if possible, go into the garden or temporary stay in a separate room or temporary leave the property.

Any survey tools will be disinfected before and after the inspection.

On arrival the surveyor will call to confirm safe access to the property.

The method statement is brief and will change to the current government guidance, as necessary.
