York Way-duplicate-5

The Challenge

We were instructed to assist in the purchase of a two-bedroom flat in a secure new development close to Kings Cross. Our client was a first time buyer from Croatia who was studying for her PHD at UCL so she was very busy and needed our help. Without an in-depth knowledge of the market, the areas to consider, or the process, our assistance was required to explore, educate and advise.

The Perfect Conclusion

We identified a stunning two-bedroom apartment set within a modern development located a short walk away from both Kings Cross station and UCL. Being owner occupied, the apartment was still in almost new condition. There was a competing bid on the table from another buyer, but thanks to our swift negotiations we managed to not only convince the owner to sell to our client, we also managed to negotiate £15,000 off the asking price equating to a very competitive £938 per square foot.

The Unfair Advantage

Our buyers’ offers stand out from the crowd. By ensuring the offer was well organised and clear from the outset, the vendor knew that with good representation, the buyers would be able to move to a swift exchange and completion. This helped him to tie in his onward purchase before the end of the Stamp Duty holiday setting us ahead of a competing bid.

Dewhurst Road-duplicate-3

The Challenge

We were engaged by a UK based couple with a young family who were looking to upsize from their flat in Maida Vale to a much larger family house with a garden in West London as they needed more space. As lawyers, our clients both worked long hours, making the process of selling and finding almost impossible to do without professional help. Having lived and worked through two lockdowns it was essential that their next purchase had a separate living space for their young daughter to play in. With them both being partners at City law firms it was also crucial that the house have a sensible commute in to the City. Due to their very busy work schedules they simply did not have the time required to fully research and explore the multiple areas they were considering.

The Perfect Conclusion

We spent considerable time educating our clients on various areas in West London that could work for their brief and budget. This included comparing options in Fulham, Chiswick, Putney and Barnes. Eventually we honed in on Brook Green; with its close proximity to Central London, and great transport links, this would be the ideal location for them. We identified an immaculate 4 bedroom family home that had a separate play area on the lower ground floor for their daughter. It also had a large South West facing garden which is exactly what they were looking for. The market in West London for family homes with gardens is highly competitive yet we were still able to negotiate a discount from the asking price.

The Unfair Advantage

No brief is too wide. We have the time, experience and expertise to research and explore multiple areas ensuring that our clients have confidence to make an informed decision.
