Communication to owners – 24 March 2020

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve in Australia and globally, we would like to update our owners on how we are managing COVID-19 and its potential impacts. Our highest priority is the health and wellbeing of our people, our tenants and our communities.

Pure Real Estate is taking an informed approach that is being guided by advice from Australian health authorities and the Queensland State Government to provide continued Real Estate services. Below outlines our current approach to the ongoing risk.

Personal Health and Safety
To help prevent the transmission of COVID-19, we have implemented the following precautionary measures:

  • We have instructed our employees to take leave if they are feeling unwell or to work from home. In addition, any employees with flu-like symptoms have been directed to seek urgent medical advice.
  • We have suspended conducting Routine Inspections while we determine other ways to meet our contractual obligations without putting employees or tenants at risk.
  • We are working with employees, tenants and prospective tenants to conduct open for inspections on properties available for rent so that we can work to minimise vacancy rates whilst also minimising the risk to the health and wellbeing of all involved.
  • We are working with contractors and tenants regarding any maintenance requirements to ensure it is carried out in a way that minimises the risk to tenants and contractors.

Office Sanitisation
In our office, we have implemented control measures as recommended by government health authorities. These include:

  • Asking our employees to exercise good hygiene practices including regular hand washing with soap.
  • Increasing availability of hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wipes in high traffic areas and public entrances.
  • Sanitizing property keys as they go in and out of the office.

Working as a Team
In this challenging time, Pure Real Estate Group is committed to working with our people, owners, tenants and contractors, and the relevant authorities to listen, take advice and importantly, take decisive action to assist in preserving the health and wellbeing of our communities.

We are currently looking at how we will manage tenancies that fall into financial hardship in this time and will be in contact shortly with further information.

We will continue to monitor the situation and inform you if our approach changes in the future.

We look forward to working together to support you through this time.

Kind Regards,

Russell Peter | Principal
