Following the recent restrictions on the housing market as a result of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have created a dedicated hub which provides guidance and support for consumers and our network surveyors. Take a look below.
We’re continuing to review how best to serve our lender clients and consumers, while providing support to our staff and network during this unprecedented time. With the landscape of the housing market constantly changing, we’ll be updating our website with the information that you need.
You can find out what we’re currently doing to reduce the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) on our valuations and home surveys by taking a look at the frequently asked questions for surveyors and lenders below.

As of 13th May 2020, our surveyors have recommenced physical inspections with immediate effect with new safety procedures in place to protect both you and our surveyor from coronavirus (COVID-19).
All SDL surveyors will adopt a specific post-lockdown inspection procedure – already approved by our lender clients – and each has received their own Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
As inspections begin to take place, we will keep abreast of guidance from both the Government and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), plus we will listen to feedback from both surveyors and consumers in order to amend and refine its procedures accordingly.
Our safety procedures are outlined for consumers in the short video below:
If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
