Our British clients, who live in the North of England, instructed us to find them a three-bedroom apartment in the Pimlico/Westminster area to be used as a second home for their family when they visit London. They were also hoping to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday which ended at the end of June, so we needed to find them the right property fast.
On our first tour, we showed them a beautifully renovated three-bedroom, three bathroom apartment set on the top two floors of a well-maintained Victorian terraced house in Pimlico. The flat had been recently finished by developers so was in immaculate condition throughout. It also benefited from a lovely west facing terrace. Thanks to our negotiations we were able to save our clients £115,000, equating to a saving of just over 7%.
By instructing Black Brick’s tried and tested recommended lawyers and surveyors, this greatly increased our clients chances of exchanging contracts before the end of June, when the stamp duty holiday ended. Our recommended panel of lawyers, surveyors and mortgage brokers have been carefully curated over many years. Having the right team in place is crucial to the success of any deal, but in particular, when timescales are tight. As a result, our clients completed their purchase 2 days before the deadline, and saved themselves a significant discount on stamp duty.
Our market knowledge and contacts are what sets us apart. A total understanding of our clients requirements combined with our expertise in Pimlico meant we identified the perfect apartment on our first tour. We also negotiated a significant discount, and thanks to our professional recommendations, we exchanged contracts before the end of June cut-off date for stamp duty saving.
We would be delighted to hear from you to discuss your own property requirements. For a non-obligatory consultation, please contact us.
