  • Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;

The NSW Government has specified that financial institutions are an essential provider and includes those whose work is essential for the continued operation of an essential provider.

For valuer members, this will mean if valuation inspections are required for banks, you may leave your home to conduct them. 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.

It is important to familiarise yourself with API COVID-19 protocols available at our COVID-19 Hub.

If you have any symptoms at all, get tested immediately and quarantine at home until you receive a negative result.

Below you will find a letter from API confirming that as a supporting service to the banks, you are able to conduct valuations where the work is required as part of an essential service.
