COVID-19 Safe Practice Guidelines – ORANGE ZONE

Prior to a private viewing or open home appointment.


  • Private viewings and open homes can take place if consent from vendor has been received.
  • Where possible marketing material will be emailed to you prior or following the viewing. 
  • It is preferable that you pre-registered your interest to attend an open home or private viewing. 
  • You are able to request a copy of First National Gore’s COVID-19 Safe Practice Guidelines and these will be made available at open homes and private viewings. 
  • Tenants will need to complete, sign, and return to us a copy of the Purchaser Consent & Declaration Form prior to open homes and private viewings. 
  • The number of people in the home at one time must be limited to ensure physical distancing (1m minimum between different bubbles) can always be maintained. This may mean staggering access to the property and requiring attendees to wait outside the property until prior attendees leave. 
  • In all cases no more than 50 people may attend at any one time. Physical distancing of 1m must always be maintained between different bubbles, meaning that the majority of open homes will need to have significantly less than 50 people in attendance. 
  • Queue management will be used to ensure attendees waiting to enter maintain physical distancing. 
When is a private viewing unable to take place.


  • No viewings or open homes at properties where a person living at has been, in the 14 days prior to the viewing, unwell or self-isolating.
  • Those feeling unwell, or who have travelled overseas recently, are self-isolating or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 may not enter the property.
  • High-risk people should consider not attending viewings (e.g., those over 70 or with existing medical conditions).
