Covid 19 Update At Bolitho/The Rent Shop, we’re closely monitoring the situation around Covid 19 and want to ensure that all necessary measures are taken in accordance with advice from both the World Health Organisation and The Real Estate Institute of NZ. Our entire team are following best practise guidelines around personal hygiene and have been equipped with hand sanitiser to use regularly, especially in between viewings and inspections and we have supplied our team with high doses of vitamin c to boost immune systems. Please don’t be offended if we don’t shake your hand – given the incubation period, this is purely a measure taken to reduce the potential spread of the virus. Rest assured, there is no need to panic or go into hibernation. At this point it is business as usual. Our team will continue to conduct viewings, inspections and other appointments, but we do ask that you also follow a high level of hygiene. The well-being of our staff, their families and the public is paramount. If you are unwell or experiencing illness symptoms we ask that you inform your property manager before they enter your home for inspections or viewings. We do have to respect the wishes of our current landlords and tenants to maintain a healthy living environment, so if you’re unwell, you could be refused entry. We are equipped to handle any future developments around Covid – 19 including the ability for our team to self-isolate and work remotely if necessary, but let’s cross that bridge if we come to it. If you’re curious for more information, we recommend you follow The Ministry of Health’s advice here: https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus Take Care & keep well, Alex Watson, CEO
