Whether it is for a family home, pied-à-terre, investment or development, finding off-market opportunities in the most desirable areas of London takes experience, knowledge and contacts. Our advice can not only save time but we will add value and provide you with a competitive advantage throughout the process.
Structuring the approach to negotiation correctly, specifically to the individual scenario, is key to a successful purchase. Once terms are agreed we will work with your solicitor to steer the transaction through to completion in the most efficient way.
