Personal Safety Is Paramount
Whether you are going to a view a property or you are having someone round to view your own property, consider your personal safety. We don’t want to be alarmist but you should always keep in mind that you are meeting someone you don’t know in a private environment.
The number one piece of advice here is to ask a friend or relative to accompany you for the viewing. It might sound over the top, but you should always have backup ready.
Also be careful if you are asked about any confidential information and if you are hosting a viewing, never leave guests unattended, and make sure that you hide any valuables before a house viewing.
