This guide will answer some of the questions you may have about visiting a display home, a builder’s showroom or a supplier’s selection centre, during the COVID-19 restrictions.

This guide sets out how you can confidently work with a homebuilder or product supplier during COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns.
