Our lettings teams are using COVID safe ways of working. Most parts of the lettings process are done in contactless ways to make your move as safe as possible and reduce the spread of coronavirus, but sometimes we may require an in-person meeting. This will be done in a socially distanced way.

We may need to collect some additional information about coronavirus before we arrange a visit or repair with you.

This information will help us assess whether we need to put in place additional precautionary measures for our colleagues when they visit your home.

If we need a contractor to visit your home, we will need to tell them too, so that they can take similar additional measures.

We will treat the information you give us with the utmost care. We will keep it for a limited time and will use it for the purposes of safeguarding all our colleagues and customers.

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has put together some information to help you understand coronavirus and your personal data.

Our priority is the health, wellbeing and safety of our customers and colleagues.

We are following the latest Government and NHS advice, and can assure you that we are doing all we can to help protect our customers and their homes..

Our colleagues will wear a face covering while in your home and when moving through any communal areas such as corridors or lounges. Our teams have suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) and will wear what is appropriate for the task. They also have anti-bacterial wipes for the surfaces they need to touch.

We will ask you to stand at a safe distance away, or in another room. We’ll also let you know if you need to take any additional safety precautions while our colleagues are visiting your home.

All trades operatives will show you identification when they visit your home. Please check this and once you are satisfied, you can leave our contractor or colleague to carry out their work. Our colleagues can remove their face covering while socially distanced to help you check their identity or for easier communication such as lip-reading. After completing the job, they will let you know they have finished and are leaving, and if necessary, see themselves out.

We make sure our colleagues self-isolate if they have any symptoms or have been in contact with someone with coronavirus.

If you are reporting a repair with our Customer Service Centre, we will ask additional questions to help protect against the spread of the virus.

By following these steps, we want to reassure you that there is a low risk of spreading coronavirus from a home visit.
