> RE/MAX Michael Cowling And Associates Realty Policy for In-person viewings – Michael Cowling and Associates Realty

When a virtual viewing is not possible or practicable we have established a set of protocols and communicate them to all people involved prior to attending a viewing (e.g., realtors viewers, and current occupants).

Our policy prohibits anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 from attending in-person viewings. We advise clients who have booked appointments that they must cancel if they develop symptoms. Policies may also cover those who are under order by the public health officer to self-isolate due to international travel.

We post signage at the property promoting the proper physical distancing requirement.

Provide additional handwashing facilities (e.g.hand sanitizer) at the front door and ask visitors to wash their hands before entering.

To help maintain the safety of consumers, clients, and colleagues, real estate professionals should make their best attempt to refrain from showing multiple properties in a single day to help minimize cross-contamination.

Where possible, our team will stay in one location of a property during viewing to reduce the risk of physical contact with potential buyers.

We will conduct viewings by appointment only to reduce the number of people on the property.

If more than one party will be viewing the property at the same time, we will follow the provincial health officer’s order on gatherings and events, which limits the number of guests in private residences to a maximum of six.

For strata properties we will meet buyers outside of a complex and/or building to minimize unnecessary wandering around the viewing location or unit. Considerations for the physical distancing requirement should be applied.

Where multiple parties are involved and a meeting cannot be conducted virtually, we will hold meetings outside or in a large space to maintain physical distancing.

MWe will meet buyers at viewing location(s) and do not drive potential buyers to property locations.

We do not shake hands.

We will where practicable, document names and contact information for contact tracing, of all people attending a property viewing in accordance with all privacy policies.
