Perrygate is a London buying agent. As a family business, we take great pride in our complete independence and the long-term relationships built with clients.
In an increasingly complex market, securing best-in-class properties in any budget range is not an easy task. Our industry relationships and access to off market properties combined with our due diligence and relentless work-ethic gives our clients the edge over the competition.
Perrygate works on behalf of private individuals, trusts and family offices to buy residential property in London. We combine high levels of expertise, discretion and client care to give you exactly what you want. The right property at the right price.
What Makes Us Perrygate?
As experienced investors ourselves, we know the attention to detail required from a buying agent to help you make an informed decision.
We give practical and realistic advice on the London market.
Every offer we make on a property is backed up by extensive due diligence and we treat each client purchase as if it were our own.
As a privately owned family business we pride ourselves on providing clients with impartial advice and working solely in their interests.
In the UK, estate agents work for and are paid by the vendor. A buying agent fighting your corner can make all the difference. We always give clients an honest assessment of current market conditions and the pros and cons of each property. Often this means advising a client to walk away from a property they are interested in. We believe independence and trust go hand in hand.
We are not under financial pressure to quickly secure clients properties and our up-front £1,500 fee retains our services for six months.
We are relentless in searching for the right property and leave no stone or contact unturned. We understand buying a property is one of life’s most important investments and requires significant due diligence. That’s why we only work with a maximum of four clients at any time.
Furthermore, we only acquire property in central London. We do not undertake rental searches (except for our buying clients), managed sales or property management – although we can refer clients to excellent firms which do.
Many of our clients have busy schedules and we always make ourselves available outside of office hours and at weekends throughout the search. Our mobiles are always on!
Transparency is at the forefront of our business.
Our published fees are all you pay us. There are no hidden costs.
Our trusted network of experienced solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, architects, builders etc. is available at no additional cost and we receive no commission from third parties.
We don’t just search for properties listed online and in estate agent windows. Developers, selling agents and private vendors frequently present us with off market properties.
For searches on behalf of UHNW individuals, it is not uncommon for the majority of the shortlist to be off market.
Even in a slower market, the top 10% of any property type does not stay on the market for long. Our contacts mean we often view properties before the competition.
When it comes to preparing an offer, detail is everything.
Any offer is informed by a multitude of factors. This includes but is not limited to the vendor’s circumstances, the local planning environment, preliminary information on the lease and an in-depth review of market comparables.
Our negotiation strategy is also informed by data from various industry market databases and access to live sales data.
This due diligence means issues are often identified and mitigated before the purchase is in the hands of a solicitor and surveyor. We believe this is why the proportion of agreed purchases which go on to exchange contracts is far above the national average.
Our pricing offers excellent value, no matter what your budget is. We have fewer overheads than traditional buying agents and mainly rely on word of mouth referrals.
We pass on the considerable savings to you without compromising on expertise or service.
We always aim to secure a property at the best price but charge no commission on the amount we save our clients. For higher value transactions, it is not uncommon for the amount negotiated off the asking price to be 5-10 times our fee.
