London Buying Agent

Perrygate works on behalf of private individuals, trusts and family offices to buy residential property in central London. We combine high levels of expertise, discretion and client care to find clients the right property on the best terms. 

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 property combined with our due diligence and relentless work-ethic gives our clients the edge over the competition.

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. 

"The service from Alex was 'over and above' what I expected and I would highly recommend him as a knowledgeable and trustworthy guide to find a property in London."

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.

We believe independence and trust go hand in hand.  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 are not under financial pressure to quickly secure clients properties and our up-front £2,000 fee retains our services for a minimum of six months. 

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 work with 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.

Transparency is at the forefront of our business.

Our published fees are all you pay us. There are no hidden costs and we receive no third party commissions. Our trusted network of experienced solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, architects, builders etc. is available at no additional cost. 

We always give our clients an unfiltered view of the market and are committed to never be driven by our success fee. Neither of us are from a sales background and we would like to think this is reflected in our approach. We regularly advise clients to walk away from properties. 

Our trusted network of experienced solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, architects, builders etc. is available at no additional cost.

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 inaccessible to the general public. 

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 always aim to secure a property at the best price but charge no commission on the amount we save our clients. It is not uncommon for the amount negotiated off the asking price to be many multiples of our fee.
