    Case study background and context

    Our client was drawn to Richmond for its lush green landscapes, picturesque hillside views, and its close proximity to the River Thames. Additionally, the presence of outstanding schools in the area was a significant factor. The key criteria was to live in in the catchment area of the best primary school in Richmond.

    Property search criteria

    • 2 bed
    • Within the catchment area of the Vineyard rated Outstanding
    • Area: Richmond
    • Budget: 1 m

    The challenge

    Our challenges included finding a rental property that offered a 6-month break clause, providing our client with the flexibility to transition to their purchased property as needed. Following this, we began our search for their future home, meticulously coordinating each step in the process. Simultaneously, we needed to ensure that both the rental property and the prospective purchase were located within the desired school's catchment area.

    Results and outcomes

    We paid special attention to the rental property's location, ensuring it fell within the highly-rated Vineyard catchment area, as per OFSTED's rating. The property we've found for them to buy was situated within the catchment area of both the desired primary and secondary schools. Furthermore, this property boasted an approved planning permission for a loft conversion, enhancing its potential.

    The key to success

    The key to success can be attributed to careful coordination, effective negotiation, thorough research and planning, expertise, and industry knowledge, as well as flexibility and adaptability. These elements collectively ensured a successful property search process that aligned with the client's unique requirements and goals.
