Here at Prospect, we are committed to keeping you safe. That’s why we are continuing to take the following measures to protect our clients and staff from COVID-19.
Working from home
With the exception of our front-office staff, the majority of our workforce are continuing to work from home on a full-time basis. All employees are set up to work from home so that in the event of a positive COVID case, we’re able to continue business as usual from home to reduce infection. Regular testing
Our front-office staff are continuing to test regularly for COVID-19. Any employees with symptoms or a positive text result are instructed to work from home for at least seven days or until they receive a negative test result.
When booking a face-to-face appointment, valuation, or viewing, please inform your agent if you would like for them to wear PPE. If you are selling or renting, you may also wish for PPE to be worn by all viewers attending your property, which your agent will be happy to implement.
Our offices are fogged with medical-grade antibacterial solution on a regular basis.
Virtual valuations and viewings
We are still offering virtual valuations and viewings to continue ‘business as usual’ while clients or employees are isolating or if you wish to minimise contact.
If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your local office and we would be more than happy to accommodate you. Ready to get your property on the market? Book a valuation today.View our risk assessment

'Prospect' has recently helped me with selling my flat although my property was not the easiest to sell. 'Prospect' is represented by a team of enthusiastic, hardworking, professional, hardworking people who don't easily give up. I definitely recommend 'Prospect'.
I moved to Prospect from another Agency last year after a complete refurbishment of my flat ready to let and I am so glad I made the move! I am particularly impressed with Agnese and the way she is managing my property, very efficient, always cheerful and very helpful.
