Coronavirus COVID (19) Professional Inspection protocol



We thank you for your continued support and understanding and the safety of our clients and our Surveyors are of paramount importance to us.

To enable us to safely carry out inspections for your building project, we must insist that the following guidelines are strictly adhered to:-

  • Our Surveyors will call you on the morning of our scheduled inspection and you must inform them if anyone who is, or, who has been, recently working on your building site and showing  symptoms of COVID (19). If so, our inspection will be rescheduled for a different future date.
  • All individuals and site workers to kindly vacate the property/building site to enable our Surveyors to remain at least 2m apart from any other individual and to be able to access all areas of the property whilst being able to move around the property freely.  
  • Please leave all external and internal doors open to reduce the need for our Surveyors to touch door handles, this includes but not limited to cupboards underneath a kitchen sinks when checking for items such as satisfactory plumbing works or boilers concealed behind kitchen/housing units.
  • Loft hatches should be left open to allow for easy visual inspection of the internal roof structure and for easy checking for adequate insulation to roof spaces.
  • Our Surveyors will be wearing gloves during their inspection and where possible, they will be avoid touching handles or work surfaces.
  • If there is a particular section of the property that our Surveyors are not able to access, you will be notified and required to submit photographs and or video footage of those particular items/areas.
  • If these conditions of our inspections are compromised in any way, we reserve the right to charge you for an additional inspection to take place at a later date.
  • If our Surveyors notice any site workers that are not adhering to the social distancing measures, we will notify the site manager and we will be keeping a record of this information which could be made available to the Authorities if requested.

We will continue to keep you up to date with any further changes to these guidelines.

If you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us and a member of our team will be happy to assist you.

We thank you for helping us to keep the construction industry active and safe.

Yours sincerely

Adele Reid

Managing Director

ABC+ WARRANTY – UK CONSTRUCTION CORONAVIRUS UPDATE



Following the Governments recent announcement for lockdown procedures in the UK, I am delighted to confirm that as of this morning, the Construction industry has been specified as a ‘Critical Industry’ and is therefore encouraged to keep construction activity going ahead as normal, this includes site inspections by professionals such as ourselves and our Surveyors here at ABC+ Warranty.

We understand just how important it is that activity continues on building sites and we remain committed to supporting all of our clients.

Our site inspections will continue to go ahead as normal but we must insist that you respectfully follow the social distancing guidelines and ensure that any worker at the site remains at least 2 meters apart from our Surveyors whilst carrying out our inspections.

Alternatively, where possible, please clear the site of workers during our inspection to ensure the safety of both our Surveyors and also that of your workers.

When booking your next inspection, we need you to confirm that there is no one at the site who has been advised to self-isolate, has returned from overseas from an affected area or is displaying signs of coronavirus.

RICS GUIDANCE TO CORONA VIRUS

Please continue to take a good selection of photographs of any works as they progress for our records.

We will continue to offer all of our clients our ‘Pay as you build’ payment option plan at no additional cost.

You can check our website for this and all other updates in line with any further Government guidelines.

Yours sincerely
