The Building Work and Construction section of the government’s Advice for businesses during Level 3 has been updated to allow access to homes for short periods of time.
The relevant section reads as follows:-
In preparation for the move from Safe Exit Level 3 to Safe Exit Level 2 businesses are now able to enter homes for short periods of time in order to obtain the information they require to provide the customer with a quote for work, such as measuring up.

In the drop down menu on the left hand side you need to open up the “Retail sector” heading which gives you a sub-menu, the last of which is entitled “Businesses entering private homes for short periods”
