COVID-19 Alert Level 3 update
It is so great to see Auckland moving closer to normality, let's hope the lockdown will be over soon.
Due to the current Delta Restrictions – the wellbeing of our team, families and community is of importance to us.
Under COVID-19 Alert Level 3, the following guidelines are followed by our team.
COVID-19: Routine Inspections
• In-person routine tenancy inspections are not permitted at a tenanted property under Alert Level 3.
• Rental property inspections are only permitted in emergency situations, such as if a landlord needs to confirm that emergency maintenance is required. If a landlord enters the rental property, a face mask is required to be worn.
COVID-19: Property Viewings - Vacant Properties
• Viewings are by appointment only.
• One private viewing at a time only.
• A limit of two viewings per day in any vacant property.
• One property manager to attend a viewing only.
• Keep private viewings brief.
• Attendees should not be travelling between regions for the purpose of viewing a property.
• A maximum of two attendees from any one 'bubble' at any private viewing.
• Ensure physical distancing is maintained at all times (2 metres) and face masks are worn.
COVID-19: Property Maintenance
• All urgent and non-urgent maintenance (with tenants consent) can occur under Alert Level 3, however, we ask property managers to consider the need vs risk of any non-urgent maintenance before organising.
• Tradespeople attending a property must be instructed to:
- Adhere to physical distancing (2 metres).
- Not attend the property if occupants have been overseas recently, are self-isolating or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or if they or anyone they have been in contact with have been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
- Limit number of persons at the property.
COVID-19: Moving Tenants
• Tenants can move house during Alert Level 3 in their region.
• Tenants can move between regions at the same Alert Level if they are relocating their home or business, but can't employ the help of a moving company.
• Physical distancing to be maintained and face masks to be worn.
• Ingoing and vacating inspections can be conducted by the property manager, only when: - The property is vacant.
- The inspection does not involve contact with other customers or staff.
