Office- JHB arrangements for alert level 3

– Select image to view –


The newest regulations published on the 11th of January 2021 dictates that South Africa will remain on adjusted Level 3 of the extended lockdown in terms of the Disaster Management Act 57 of 2002. There is no direct reference in the new Regulations, as mentioned above, that any activity of Estate Agents and Agencies are barred from conducting business. All economic activities may proceed, except those mentioned in Table 2 of the Regulations. Originally, Property Practitioners were allowed to proceed with work under Level 3, in terms of which the EAAB brought out guidelines for Estate Agents. The mentioned can be viewed on the EAAB website in which guidance is given for the workplace of Property Practitioners and for interaction with clients.

While show houses are not specifically excluded by the guidelines, agents are encouraged to keep to virtual tours as far as possible and only allow physical visits to buyers who have shown serious interest. Open house showings therefore seem to be off the table at this stage. Showing houses must inter alia conform to the following:

  • The owner/tenant of the property should not be present during the viewing or be encouraged to rather occupy a different section of the property while the viewing is taking place. The viewing should be kept brief. The owner/tenant should also give written consent that specific prospective purchasers may enter the property.
  • All doors and windows should be opened to ensure proper ventilation.
  • Safety protocols must be communicated to all parties before viewing.
  • There should be no more than 2 persons allowed to view the property at a time.
  • Masks, covering the mouth and the nose, must be worn at all times by all parties present. Failure to wear a mask during such an interaction could be a criminal offence.
  • Full details of the persons viewing the property should be recorded in writing and signed by the prospective purchasers in which case temperatures are taken, hands sanitized and the prospective purchasers confirms that they have not been in contact with persons that has tested positive or experienced symptoms of coronavirus in the preceding 14 days. Visual confirmation of any symptoms should also be recorded by the Estate Agent regardless of the declaration by the prospective purchasers.
  • The document with the above information should be stored by the Estate Agent.
  • Prospective purchasers, refusing any of the above, should not be allowed access to the property.
  • Prospective purchasers should be encouraged to maintain social distancing (allowing 1.5m between persons) and must be instructed to avoid touching any surface. Keep sanitizer handy. In this instance it is a must.

Compliments of the new year to you and your team. I would just like to take this time to bring to your attention how phenomenal your team (more specifically Lynette) was in getting my bond registered. I am a first time buyer but was guided quite professionally throughout the entire process. At no point did I feel overwhelmed and uncomfortable with the information I had received.

Everything had been processed in an amazingly short period as soon as it landed with your firm. This time frame exceeded my expectations by far. Furthermore Lynette was quite welcoming to all my inquiries (as many as there were).

It has been a pleasure to work with your team and I wish you a successful year ahead as well as years to follow.
