Coronavirus and Residential Property Management
How to put in place alternative arrangements for property management in the critical context of life-threatening impacts of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak
This week, we will be virtually working on essential and non-essential aspects of residential property management within the context of decontamination in non-clinical settings and social distancing requirements for managed properties in order to slow down and contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
As the coronavirus pandemic crisis continues, there are renters and landlords/ladies who maybe having to rethink any issues or works related to the property management, particularly they have to think between essential and non-essential issues or works, between emergency and non-emergency ones.
At this time of national emergency, everybody including renters and landlords/ladies should follow the government’s guidance and the NHS advice. The UK government guidance is clear: STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS AND SAVE LIVES. We will apply as much as we can this guidance within the context of residential property management.
Within the contexts of self-isolation and social distancing requirements, both landlords/ladies and tenants are required to only communicate via phone, text and email. If landlords/ladies follow the government’s guidance and the NHS advice, they should not arrange any inspections or non-essential works during this period unless it cannot be avoided. The same, tenants are advised against having visitors in the property.
However, where for example a tenant has a mental health issue or is classified as a vulnerable person, there are different provisions from the government; provisions which both landlords/ladies and tenants need to explore and to be aware.
The current time is a difficult one as tenants may have maintenance issues, but cannot ask their landlords/ladies or managing agents to deal with these issues. To help both contractual parties to manage management issues during this exceptional time of the coronavirus, we will be discussing with them how to go about them.
For example, we will be looking at together what is essential and non-essential repair or visit or cleaning at managed properties at this time of the coronavirus pandemic.
This week, we are working with them via ONLY phone, text, email and contact form to try to find alternative arrangements for property management in the critical context of life-threatening impacts of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak.
Like many of us, renters and landlords/ladies are searching ways of adapting to this new difficult situation.
