Last night the California Association of Realtors issued guidance stating specifically that Residential Real Estate is now considered an “Essential Industry” based on the latest update from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). You can read the official statement here:…/abo…/mediacenter/news/essentialservice

Since Governor Newsom’s March 4, 2020 order incorporates this list, the order now incorporates residential and commercial real estate, including settlement services, as essential services in California. However, if a city or county has an order with a more restrictive standard regarding what qualifies as an essential service, or more restrictions on activities, those guidelines will still govern the activities of those engaged in these essential services.

We are performing inspections and will continue providing this essential service. We recommend verifying that your local city or county has not issued a more restrictive standard.
