CORONA VIRUS – COVID-19 UPDATE 17th March 2020


17th March 2020


Following the up to date government advice we can confirm that Sunderlands will be continuing to operate with business as usual, however in accordance with the following guidelines in place.



Our estate agency business will continue to operate as usual, however we would politely ask our clients to refrain from making a visit to either of our branches when either a phone call or email will suffice.  Most of our business operates via telephone, email and website connections and therefore we envisage that we will be able to continue to operate with minimal disruption.  We are continuing to carry out viewings with vendors approval and we will also continue to carry out market appraisals and valuations as normal.  All of our properties are available to be viewed online and we kindly request that potential purchasers browse our website rather than browsing in our offices.  Please can we request that all persons that do attend our offices use the hand sanitation facilities provided. We kindly request that no children should enter our premises.



We can confirm that all weekly and regular sales of prime stock and store sales will continue and carry on as scheduled.  As you are aware this is a very movable feast and we will update you on a regular basis.  We do not wish to stop anybody attending our livestock markets but it is recommended that livestock markets are only a place of business. Attendance to the market should be restricted to vendors, purchasers and hauliers conducting business only. Onlookers, trade followers and the general public are kindly asked not to attend. 

It has been recommended by the government that pregnant women and people over the age of 70 or those with underlying health issues consider socially distancing theirselves.  We note that many of our clients are the older generation and should vendors wish to just drop stock off at the loading bay and then leave the market then we will of course look after their stock on their behalf. 

We are constantly keeping up to date with all government and medical advice and will update you accordingly if our procedures need to change.

Please note that arrangements made need to change at short notice.

We'd love to hear from you
