The API is continuing to closely monitor the impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown in NSW.
From Sunday July 18, stay at home rules apply to Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas.
You must not leave home unless you have a reasonable excuse.
You are only allowed to go to work if
- the business you work at is allowed to stay open
- you cannot work from home.
Consistent with previous lockdowns, Banks and financial services continue to be exempted from lockdowns. As an extension, valuations, as far as we are able to tell, continue to also be exempt as was the case previously in Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour.
Fairfield, Liverpool and Canterbury-Bankstown
If you live in the Fairfield, Liverpool and Canterbury-Bankstown Local Government Areas of Sydney, you cannot leave the local government area that you live in to go to work if you are not an authorised worker. See the full restrictions here.
Members are also encouraged to visit the COVID Hub on the API website which has advice regarding how to best carry out valuations in a COVID-safe manner. Be mindful of the restrictions of visitors to homes and if you are not able to inspect a vacant property, refer to the API COVID-19 protocols.
