  • Once we have received your enquiry, we will arrange to meet or talk on the telephone to discuss your specific requirements and ensure that you are comfortable that we can provide you with what you want. This initial contact is free of charge with no financial commitment from you at this stage.
  • Your property needs would be reviewed so that we know exactly what you are looking for including the “must haves” and the “not wanted under any circumstances.”
  • If you wish for us to proceed with a search, we ask for a non-refundable deposit and invite you to sign a copy of our terms and conditions at which point we begin the search process for you.
  • Once a search has been instructed we are careful to ensure each client enjoys our full and undivided attention.
  • During our search, we will regularly send you details of properties we feel meet your brief including photos and any relevant comments based on our local awareness and keep you up to date with progress.
  • Any properties you feel are of serious interest to you, we view ourselves on your behalf and send you our own considered thoughts and opinions on the building, position, area etc. and whether or not we believe it is suitable and worth you seeing. This could include additional photos as despite their best efforts, agent’s details don’t always tell you everything.
  • Obviously, as any new property comes to market we review those as well and ensure you are kept fully up to date with what is happening in the market.
  • Between us, we would draw up a short list of suitable potential properties with a programme to view and arrange a date to meet in the area. We make all arrangements for the viewings so all you have to do is concentrate on looking at the properties.
  • If you intend to travel by train or plane instead of by car we can arrange to pick you up from the station or airport. We escort you on the days of the viewing tour dropping you off at your local accommodation at the end of the day or returning you to the station or airport depending on the itinerary.
  • When we eventually find a property you are interested in buying, we assist you with the negotiation on price, which can be more than offset against our fees.
  • As well as assisting you through the negotiating process, we also help with surveys, searches, architects, schools, removals and solicitors if required.
  • Additionally we can introduce you to our network of local artisans for any works that you may wish to carry out to your new home.
  • In our role as property finder it is important to understand that we only work for you as the client and no-one else which includes the highest possible level of confidentiality.
  • Our fees are a small percentage of the selling price of the property less the initial deposit.
