In general, viewings are booked for 30-minutes, or in hourly slots. On occasions, viewings may take a few minutes longer than planned.
Some viewings may overrun by 5-10 minutes and we would not look to pay an additional fee for this (as many viewings will also only take 15-20 minutes). Clients will look to the Viewber to control the viewing and ensure appointments run to schedule. If there are signs that the viewing will exceed an additional 10-minutes and the applicants are refusing to leave, then our Viewbers are requested to telephone the client for advice.
As many as you're happy to take on that have been offered to you - we are getting busier every day.
Wherever possible, we ask our Viewbers to arrive at the property early to familiarise themselves with the layout.

Usually, there will be a key safe installed at the property, however, you may also be asked to collect keys from a collection point, or you may be requested to be a key holder. On occasions, the property owner themselves will provide access.
