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.
