Our Italian client was looking for a secure pied a terre in Kensington. They had already identified a property which they liked, but needed specialist advice on value and negotiation. Being based overseas they also wanted someone on the ground who could communicate more efficiently with the sellers, and who could subsequently provide ongoing management of works and a key holding once the purchase had completed.
We successfully agreed the purchase at £150,000 less than the asking price. We have overseen the legal process and introduced best in class surveyors and building contractors to assist with advice on future works. The whole process has been managed and co-ordinated by us, reducing any risk of potential loss of time and escalating costs due to the client being busy and based overseas.
We have strong relationships built over decades. Our relationship with the estate agent meant we were able to save our clients 7% from the asking price.
