Guernsey Private Residential Landlords Association
to All States Deputies
Proposition No P.2020/30
Proposed Introduction of a General Housing Law
The GPRLA write to you today on behalf of our 254 members representing 1477 units of accommodation in the Island. We request that you do not support the Amendment to the above law for the following reasons.
We’d suggest that tenants who are required to give anyone access to the home they are renting, be it landlord or his contractor/s for any work that need to be done there, should also keep a contact tracing diary.
Such visits are not allowed if either the person visiting or the tenant have had covid-19 symptoms within the last 48 hours, or if anyone in the household is in isolation, or shielding following advice from a medical professional.
The Covid-19 team say
“The Guidance can be read here https://covid19.gov.gg/
We hope that helps, and remember that the covid-19 website contains lots of helpful information if you have any questions.
