The search and shortlisting of properties is only the start of the TBS service, we also carry out extensive due diligence on every chosen property and provide impartial advice on price and any other issues which could affect a client's future with the property. This work will vary depending on whether it is a purchase or rental but would encompass, where appropriate, planning and environmental issues, renovation costs and feasibility of carrying out these works, blights, income and running costs, privacy, commutability, schooling and amenities.
Each property search begins with an initial consultation, either by phone or in person, where we create a bespoke plan of action that will be tailored to you based on the type of property you require as well as your short and long term aims. By fully understanding and anticipating your current and future property requirements we can target specific areas and property types, shortlisting on and off-market opportunities which closely match your lifestyle needs or financial objectives.
Every negotiation is different and each therefore requires a careful tactical approach. Our collective experience and expertise, combined with painstaking due diligence carried out on every property purchased or rented, provides a high level of comfort to our clients.
Our extensive track record allows us to secure your chosen properties at the best possible price, often saving substantial amounts of money throughout the process.
We are creative when it comes to negotiating on your behalf and our aim is always to secure the property on the best available terms and to place you, whenever possible, in a 'preferred purchaser or tenant' position. It is not always the case that the highest offer succeeds.
Once terms are agreed, we work with your solicitor or other advisors, assisting with any issues that might affect the terms of purchase or rental.
At TBS we leave no stone unturned when it comes to protecting your best interests. The search is only the start of the service as we carry out extensive due diligence on the property, providing impartial advice on price and any other issues that might affect your on-going enjoyment. These are then presented to you in a bespoke buying report.
Once terms are agreed and due diligence is undertaken, we work with lawyers, accountants and financers, through to exchange of contracts. We pride ourselves as 'problem solvers' but often these solutions will involve renegotiation of terms and we are not afraid to tell you when we believe they might be deal breakers.
In every conveyance of property the prospective purchaser or tenant should conduct some level of due diligence toward investigating the quality, both physical and intangible. Working with lawyers, surveyors, architects, planning advisors and financers, we undertake comprehensive due diligence which may include:
Only when we are entirely satisfied that the property meets exact standards and all incidental factors are in order, do we recommend that you proceed.
Each client has different property requirements and we provide a bespoke service to cover every single aspect of your individual needs, a relationship that continues beyond exchange of contracts, starting with our Completion Management service.
As search agents, the majority of our work lies in finding the right property and negotiating the best possible terms for you, but we don't stop there. We think it's important that your new property feels like home as soon as you put the key in the door.
It's the little things that matter. That's why we'll help you settle in to your new property, taking care of everything from the inspection on the day of completion (before final monies are released), setting up accounts, recruitment of staff and house or estate management.
Whether purchasing or renting a family home or an investment opportunity, our relationship with you goes beyond exchange of contracts.
Taking into account your lifestyle needs or financial objectives, we continue to advise and assist with anything from property management, changing utility suppliers to organising quotes for rental furniture, introducing architects or recommending trusted lettings.
We'll also help you settle into the community, providing local recommendations such as the best schools or restaurants and assisting with any future property needs.
