Questions & answers
You’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our services below. If your query isn’t covered here, please ask.
Don’t estate agents provide relocation services?
No, estate agents just sell properties and of course they can only recommend properties featured on their database. We are completely independent and liase with all the local estate agents in our area to find properties that match your brief exactly. This can include private sales too, broadening your scope still further.
How can I be sure you will find a house that fits my criteria?
Our close links with estate agents and private vendors means we get to hear about properties before or as soon as they come onto the market. So you get advance choice – something that is virtually impossible when you are trying to locate properties from a distance.
We also know the area. We live and work here, and our children attend local schools. You can therefore rely on us to ensure you have the required amenities close by and also exclude properties that may turn out to be in unsuitable locations.
Will I get value for money?
Because you won’t have to make regular or wasted trips to the area, you’ll save on petrol and overnight accommodation expense. You’ll also save on countless phone calls to local estate agents plus all the other expenses of sourcing a home from a distance. We can obtain a variety of quotes from local tradesmen on your behalf, so you can choose the most competitive. Most important of all, our strong negotiating skills mean we can negotiate the best possible price for your new home – so you could save thousands.
But using our services isn’t just about saving money. It’s about saving valuable time and removing all the stress and hassle off your shoulders enabling you to continue your life as normal while we do all the hard work for you.
When will you get started?
As soon as you sign our Registration Form.
Can you help us find good schools for the children?
We provide a full School Search service. We have close links with Ofsted Inspectors who will analyse reports for local schools for a nominal fee. We also have contacts at state and independent schools in the county and are happy to offer recommendations, check availability, arrange for prospectuses and make appointments for you to visit.
I am relocating from abroad. You say you handle everything. What exactly does ‘everything’ cover?
We regularly work on behalf of clients relocating from abroad and handle everything from home and location search through to sub-contracting decorating, gardening, cleaning as well as arranging for local tradesmen to plumb or wire the house – whatever you need us to do, we’ll do it.
Will I be charged extra for extra services?
Most of our services are included in our fee. Obviously you pay extra for third party costs like tradesmen or Ofsted school report inspection. And we can negotiate competitive prices for our additional services like Interior Design and Property Management. Why not email us now to find out more?
I want to purchase discreetly and remain anonymous. Is this a problem?
We always respect clients’ wishes to remain anonymous and never pass on clients’ details to third parties. You can rely on our complete discretion.
