If you read my blogs regularly you will know that as a company Farr & Farr are very much aware of our responsibilities in the local communities we serve and like to be supportive of community projects whenever we can.

A recent example of this was when we donated £100 to Elmbridge Primary School to buy Easter eggs for their annual Easter egg hunt.

I was very pleased to receive this ‘thank you’ note from Claire Pugh, the Chair of the Elmbridge Primary School PTA:

“I would like to thank you for your generous donation which enabled us to buy Easter eggs for our hunt on 5th April 2019.

The children and parents had a wonderful afternoon hunting the school field for clues to make the word to win an Easter egg. We raised a total amount of £380 profit which will go towards purchasing valuable resources for the children to use in the school.

Without the support of local businesses like yourselves, Elmbridge Primary School would not be able to raise funds for the children. Many thanks.”

Covid -19 Lockdown Update

We hope you are all staying well and safe in these very confusing times.

We are very pleased to say that with the impending second lockdown restrictions we are able to stay open and can fully function.  It just goes to show how important to the Government and the economy the residential property market is.

It is not yet confirmed as to whether our branches will be open to the public, but we can be contacted by telephone or email. 

In Summary this means

  • Buyers, sellers and tenants will continue to be able to move.
  • Removal firms, although busy are able to operate.
  • We can arrange valuations and do viewings on properties (subject to strict PPE being in place)
  • Surveyors and valuers for mortgage purposes will continue to work.

In the meantime, we will continue to follow the covid-19 safety guidelines:

  • Face coverings to be worn on all viewings.
  • Hand sanistiser to be used before entering a property.
  • Avoid touching any surfaces.
  • Viewing time is limited to 15 minutes inside the property.
  • No more than two households inside the property at any one time. This includes the agent accompanying.
  • No children permitted at viewings unless they are young enough to be carried. (Children are likely to touch surfaces).

This is good news for the property market and we will keep you updated as soon as there are any further developments.
