How our property buying service works
We leverage our extensive local and market knowledge, industry connections, and negotiation expertise throughout our processes to put you in a strong buying position. But our service doesn’t end there. We conduct rigorous due diligence so you’re fully informed every step of the way and be confident in your purchase decision. Read on to learn more about our process.
Step 1 – Consultation & property search brief
You, the beginning, are at the heart of the property buying process. We begin your property search with a comprehensive understanding of your needs, big and small. We value the importance of a detailed and well-crafted search brief, considering every detail, from preferred neighbourhoods and property types to budget and timelines. Your needs ultimately form the blueprint for finding your ideal property.
As we progress in our search and you refine your preferences, we’ll adjust the property search brief accordingly. This flexible, iterative process ensures we’re always aligned with your changing needs.
Step 2 – Financing options
The right financial product is essential to securing your perfect home in the best financial position possible. With the help of our trusted partners, they will find the most suitable financial arrangement. Our advisors will work diligently to maximise your savings and the value of your investment. All possible costs and expectations are managed to ensure no surprises.
Step 3 – Property search & viewings
As long-time specialists in the London property market, we have access to comprehensive listings, including exclusive and off-market properties. This gives you a broad selection of options to choose from. Our curated shortlist provides a concise selection of properties that best meet your criteria. We will update your shortlist as new properties become available, ensuring you have the latest opportunities. We’ll always explain why each property has been selected so you understand each option’s potential value and fit.
Having an expert undertake property viewings can be invaluable. Properly assessing a property’s condition, potential, and value can equip you with the information you need to make informed decisions. During viewings, sticking points are identified that can be used as leverage to get the best deal possible.
Step 4 – Offer accepted & conveyancing process
The search concludes when the perfect property is found, and your offer is accepted. We will guide you through the legal and financial process during the conveyancing process, working with surveyors, solicitors and financial experts to avoid any pitfalls and ensure a smooth transition to your property ownership.
Step 5 – Change of hands for your perfect property
Congratulations on securing your perfect London home! In the final phase of the property ownership transition, we’ll oversee every detail until the change of hands completes. Our role doesn’t end there; we’ll continue to support you with any issues or questions post-purchase.
