Lawton and Dawe – Resuming of services – update

Posted by: Pippa John | Post date: 13.05.20

We have been informed that the Government has made an amendment to The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restriction) (England) (Amendment) (No2) Regulation 2020 which allows for all activities involved in selling and renting properties to recommence from 13th May 2020.

Whilst we welcome this change, we are fully aware that we still need to proactively do our bit to ensure the ‘R’ number does not creep up so whilst we will not be returning to our lovely office in Poets Corner, Hove just yet we can complete sales and lettings valuations with practical guidance and we can carry out viewings on empty properties offering virtual viewings in the first instance.

We are aware that people need to move, and we have always taken our part in this seriously but now we are required to be more than just Estate Agents, we must be protectors for our community to ensure this change in restriction does not contribute to a second peak in this virus.

We have consulted the Working safely during COVID-19 in office and contact centres guidance for employers as well as guidance from our regulatory body ARLA Propertymark to ensure we are following the very best practice when we look to return to the office at the beginning of June. Any questions, or to request a viewing or valuation, please contact us on 10273 91771 or email
