Real Estate related businesses are defined as a commercial or residential real estate office or firm, or related businesses that conduct activities such as real estate sales, rentals, inspections, surveys, photography, staging, movers and escrow-related procedures.
Under the May 15 Shelter-In-Place order, service providers that enable real estate transactions (including rentals, leases, and home sales), including, but not limited to, real estate agents, escrow agents, notaries, and title companies, are allowed to operate provided that appointments and other residential real estate viewings must only occur virtually or, if a virtual viewing is not feasible, by appointment with no more than two visitors at a time residing within the same household or living unit and one individual showing the unit (except that in person visits are not allowed when the occupant is present in the residence).
On June 12, updated guidance was issued to provide Real Estate businesses with best practices for operating and performing real estate transactions -- including property showings -- in a safe manner.
Each real estate related business must create, adopt, and implement a written COVID-19 Site-Specific Protection Plan that incorporates and addresses all applicable Best Practices included in this guidance.
