Buying Service Overview

Initial Consultation

We take the time to get to know you and build a deep understanding of exactly what you are looking for in a home or investment. 

We always give an honest assessment of what your budget will afford and often refer clients to neighbourhoods or property types they hadn’t previously considered but perfectly suit their needs. 

At this stage we introduce retained clients to our network of trusted solicitors, surveyors and mortgage brokers. It is important that if the right opportunity presents itself, everything is in place to take it off the market. 

Property Search

After agreeing on a search brief, we immediately start researching and viewing properties matching your criteria and shortlisting the very best.

We are always available for regular meetings or phonecalls to discuss progress and all reporting is available on the cloud. As the search progresses, we can also accompany you on viewings. For our overseas clients, live video tours of the best properties and surrounding areas are arranged. 

Negotiation

Once a property has been identified, we negotiate to achieve the best terms. Our negotiation strategy is always backed up by extensive due diligence on live market conditions and the vendor’s circumstances. 

Selling agents know we only represent serious, well-organised buyers. This often gives us the edge in negotiations even if our offer is not the highest on the table. 

Sales Progression

Finally, we manage the sale with the solicitor , surveyor, selling agent and mortgage broker to progress the purchase in a timely manner. 

Typically one-third of agreed UK sales collapse (almost 50% in 2019!) and many underestimate the work involved at this stage. 

Post Completion Support

After clients own their property, we frequently assist in the following areas at no additional cost. 

– helping the clients set-up council tax, utilities, internet, insurance etc. 

– arranging a smooth handover of the property to letting agents – we typically begin this process before exchange to minimise void periods. 

– advising clients on the scope of potential renovation works and preparing tender documents.  

– introductions to our network of interior designers / project managers and contractors and ensuring a smooth handover. Clients value the impartial role we have in this tender process. 

– we frequently offer ad hoc advice to previous clients on a range of matters at any time. This can range from recommending a tradesman to resolve an issue, to sourcing a planning consultant for an ambitious extension. 

Please note, we have no commission relationships with any third party we recommend to clients.
