“A very big thank you for all your expertise and kindness over this traumatic house buying operation. Friends were not joking when they said its one of the most stressful things that can happen to you – but, for me, made far, far easier thanks to you.”

How we get the best value

Once we have found the right property, our service is just beginning.

We help negotiate the best possible acquisition by:

  • anticipating the liabilities a future survey might reveal
  • gauging value through reference of our extensive database of over 14,000 sold properties
  • considering which contents/fixtures should be included within a bid, what special terms should be agreed, etc
  • employing confidentiality and/or lock-out agreements, as needed
  • using our imagination!

Once terms have been agreed, we maintain our involvement:

  • Survey: we can help instruct and agree the scope of a surveyor’s inspection, fees, etc.
  • Legal: we liaise with our clients’ solicitors to check title issues such as boundaries, easements, etc. ‘on the ground’, as required
  • Planning: we check the local planning policy for the area, as well as investigate the planning history of the property and its neighbours as well as working to solve any unexpected problems…



We see the job right through; from finding the right property to completion and beyond...
