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
