Our client’s instructed us to find them a three bedroom property with a large garden in a period building. They were very open to our advice as to differing neighbourhoods across the Capital, so initially we were looking from North West London to Richmond. However after several tours it became clear that Belsize Park, the area they were renting, was the preferred location. The main challenge was that their budget would not allow them to buy a house and most of the flats with gardens did not offer three double bedrooms.
Having identified a wonderful two bedroom garden flat with planning permission granted to add another bedroom we found ourselves in a competitive bidding situation with another party. Despite putting forward the lower of the two bids our offer was accepted highlighting the strength of our relationships with estate agents and their preference to work with us over an unrepresented buyer.
We assisted our clients in obtaining detailed quotes from our extensive list of architects, builders and surveyors so they could accurately plan ahead and work out what would be possible, and importantly the costs to extend the property. This gave our clients the confidence to move ahead with the transaction knowing they would be able to create their ideal home by doing the work.
We go the extra mile – our trusted network of architects, surveyors and builders added huge value to this transaction, giving our clients the confidence to move ahead.
