I will arrange a “without obligation” meeting, preferably at your home as it gives me an extremely helpful feel/insight as to how you like to live. At this meeting we can discuss your plans, property requirements and budget, the service I will provide and any other matters for which I can offer my assistance eg the best schools, locations and villages etc; about which I have extensive and in-depth knowledge.
I will not leave a stone unturned in seeking your dream home and will be there to help you every step of the way; from identifying the property to completion of a purchase and beyond.
Initially I will source and preview suitable property which is being discreetly marketed by estate agents – the “hidden market”, as well as discuss houses with you which are currently available on the open market. At all stages, I will not only advise you as to the positive aspects of a property but also the negatives.
Once my initial search has been carried out on your behalf, I will arrange for us to view a selection of houses together. For each property that I show you, the picture will become clearer; enabling me to find your perfect home.
Communication is the most important factor in my ability to offer you the very best possible service and I take this extremely seriously. I will keep and maintain regular contact with you, from the moment you instruct me, whether it be to discuss a new property coming to the market, a review of your property requirements or current market conditions.
Having identified your perfect property I will advise you regarding price, based on comparable evidence, and my strategy to negotiate the most favourable purchase terms on your behalf. Having employed a property search agent, you will have already demonstrated your seriousness as a buyer to vendors and their agents.
From the moment the purchase is agreed and solicitors are instructed – I am very happy to recommend solicitors – I will recommend suitable surveyors. If necessary, I will instruct the surveyor to carry out specific inspections of anything which may require more detailed investigation, accompanying the surveyor if necessary.
During the conveyancing process, I will keep in frequent contact with you, your solicitor and the vendors’ estate agent, ensuring that the transaction reaches a quick and satisfactory conclusion.
Once contracts have exchanged, I will make the necessary arrangements for completion, such as: recommending removal companies, meeting you at your new home to hand over the keys and any other services you may require such as recommending Architects, Builders, Interior designers and Landscape gardeners etc.
Following completion, I will arrange a morning or afternoon to drive you around and help familiarise you with the area; pointing out good local shops, doctor’s surgeries and sports clubs etc.
Search fee/ Registration fee – £1,750 + VAT.
Success fee – Calculated as a percentage of the final purchase price and payable on completion or forty two days after exchange of contracts, whichever comes first.
Available on request.
