Petition Keep estate agents closed in tier 4 and lockdowns

I would like to request that the Government and Parliament reconsider their decision for Estate Agents to remain open during lockdowns and within tier 4. It is difficult for them to follow guidelines and they are not “essential workers”.

More details

The most valid reason to action this is to protect and save lives. Keeping estate agents open, which allows several households to mix during viewings is going against guidelines and is neither safe or sensible. Agents are feeling forced and pressured into conducting viewings whilst this should be the last of their worries especially as there is now a new variant of the virus. Agents should work from home and do virtual viewings and only do physical viewings where absolutely safe to do so.
