    Default CoVid19 Lockdown

    Well, the order was given at midnight to "shelter-in-place", except for "essential services".


    So, I will now spend some time going through my library of standard comments to make sure they are up-to-date and thorough enough.


    Should be fun.

    I also ran into something interesting yesterday at my morning inspection (probably the second-to last one for a while). I'll post it in a different category.


    How are you planning on spending your free time for the foreseeable future?

    We here in Colorado are also told to stay in place EXCEPT for essentials--and we are wondering if we are essentials--the association of realtors here have written a letter to the governor requesting they all real estate actions are essentials-will keep you posted--how is it in your state

    Governor Newsom signed Executive Order N-33-20 on March 4, 2020 stating "Stay at Home". This excepts "essential services". To me, "Stay at Home" is clear and concise, no possibility for confusion or misunderstanding. However, some inspectors and real estate agents have decided to ignore this order and go ahead and continue to offer their services. Since I am not an epidemiologist, I cannot evaluate the methods that they are using to "stay safe", but I am following the order.

    Personally, I would question the priorities of anyone disregarding the order.

    cvf,

    Of course RE agents think they are essential. Everyone thinks they are essential. I mean, you should see the state of my girlfriend's nails! If anyone was essential, it would be manicurists and hairdressers!

    The difference between manicurists and RE agents is that the agents have better lobbyists.

    Not here in PA. But some will push the envelope and nothing will happen to them.

    Even if realtors were deemed essential, it doesn't mean a seller has to let strange people come into their house, look around, and touch things. We have some friends who are looking to move and there is a house for sale they wanted to see but their realtor told them the seller is not allowing anybody in the house.

    We were recommended to work from home, self isolate, & practice social-distancing back on Mar 12. Ordered to do so March 19 and peace officers were given authority to enforce this on the 24th.

    The existing legislation defines ?essential services? as those services, which, if interrupted, ?would endanger the life, personal safety or health of the public? or those services ?that are necessary to the maintenance and administration of the rule of law or public security.?

    Construction companies, home builders, & Realtors all looking to have themselves declared "essential"; some Canadian jurisdictions have done so. One landlord/seller and her Realtor were insisting a renter/family with compromised immunity open up for a home inspection.
