Whilst it is a good idea to visit a property investment that is being marketed for sale as a customer before making a formal viewing, it is vitally important that such visits are carried out confidentially and that no approach is made to the staff, operators or customers of the business.
Many investments are being marketed confidentially and the staff and locals may not know that the property is on the market, therefore a casual approach can adversely affect the business.
