Board Services Have Resumed

We are pleased to confirm our return to service as of Monday 11th May onwards.

With a wider understanding now of the relevant health risks, we will be implementing the following guidelines for our operators:

Social distancing measures observed at all times
Hand sanitisers to be carried by all operators and used regularly
No knocking on vendors doors/interacting with vendors unless absolutely necessary
No visiting of branches
Face coverings/masks to be worn where possible
One person per van, unless those people live in the same household

Please ensure your customers are aware that we will be enforcing strict social distancing to protect all involved. We politely request they do not approach our operators, and boards are left in easily accessible locations for collection when required.

Thank you to all our clients for their continued patience during this time.

Commenting on the Property Activity Index Lettings Report, Stephen Watson Managing Director of Agency Express said:

During October we generally see a pick up in pace and this month has remained true to trend. However, activity is slower than twelve months previous. As as we collate November’s data and move in to December we will start to see the beginning on the seasonal decline, which will most likely be further impacted by the upcoming General Election.
