Open Homes and Inspections
Obviously, these will need to be cancelled for this weekend and Monday. For all our managers, because we employ the IRE software this can be managed easily. If you delete your scheduled inspection times out of your listing(s) and save them, our software will automatically cancel all these inspections on all the portals now and should *also* notify your registered inspectors of the cancellations as well, automatically (if it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll speak to IRE about this, but in theory it should).
Masks must be worn, 4meter social distancing applies (keep this in mind for your lobbies and elevators). You should close any common areas such as BBQ Areas, Media/Games/Rec Rooms, and Gyms in your building.
As for Holiday Complexes. The advice we have received from the REIQ is: Residents of Greater Brisbane cannot leave their place of residence for the purpose of taking a holiday, and anyone choosing to holiday in the Greater Brisbane Area during the lockdown must adhere to Government lockdown restrictions.
