Following the updated UK Government guidance, which came into effect on 13 May 2020, removing the restriction on non-essential home moves and supporting the return of activities related to the sale and purchase of homes, we announced that we will be reopening our sales offices and show homes from 22 May, initially for pre-booked appointments and with strict social distancing measures in place.
Having conducted a detailed review of our sales processes and customer interactions, and having regard to the latest Government guidance, we have developed a new set of protocols which include a fully revised set of working practices and staffing arrangements and a new layout of sales centres, with the installation of Perspex screens and marker guides for social distancing. Show home viewings will be unaccompanied, and only one family at a time will be able to view each home. These additional measures will maintain strict social distancing in line with Government and medical guidance and provide additional reassurance and protection for our customers and sales teams. These revised measures meet the Government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ principles.
We are very proud of the role Taylor Wimpey employees have played in supporting their own local communities during this crisis. As a company, we have now distributed 120,000 surgical masks, 75,000 pairs of gloves and donations of toys and activities from our own staff to care homes across the country. We will also be distributing 120,000 disposable aprons in the coming weeks, along with over 800 reusable face shields which we have manufactured. The response from the care homes has been overwhelming and is a source of great pride to our employees.
We are pleased to publish our latest Annual Report and Accounts, outlining our operational and financial performance for the year. We have also published our Sustainability Report 2019.

It has been brought to our attention that Taylor Wimpey shareholders are again being targeted by ‘specialist brokers’ using the offer of unrealistic prices for Taylor Wimpey shares to attract interest and high pressure sales techniques offering opportunities which often turn out to be worthless or high risk investments.
This practice is commonly known as a ‘boiler room scam’ and may be in the form of a telephone call or in writing. Please visit our fraud warning page for guidance on what to do if you have received an unsolicited call and advice on how to avoid them in the future.
We have been notified that a number of fraudulent orders and invitations to quote are being placed with various companies and firms, purporting to emanate from Taylor Wimpey plc or Taylor Wimpey UK Limited, and often ending in a “email@example.com” or similar address. The emails are being sent with or without attachments such as a brochure, corporate history, or letterhead, from a senior executive of one or other company. This fraudulent activity has been reported to the relevant authorities.
No Taylor Wimpey company places orders or invites quotations in this way and anyone receiving such an email should please ignore it unless they are already in regular communication with the company regarding a previously discussed arrangement.
