Relocating or Investing in the UK
RELOCATION AGENTS – WHY OVERSEAS PURCHASERS NEED THEM
Finding a property in the UK can be difficult enough process for buyers living in the country. But for those who are coming from overseas, the task can be beyond daunting. Whether you’re looking for a one bedroom investment flat in central London, or a five bedroom family home in the country, the type and location of property is a big decision both socially and from an investment point of view.
Many purchasers are not represented professionally until they instruct a solicitor when the deal is as good as done, but few people would consider making much lesser investments, for example, an old master, stocks and shares or a racehorse, without the benefit of professional advice. It makes sense to have someone on your side from an early stage when selecting the right property, especially if you’re buying from overseas.
It can be very difficult to gain a thorough understanding of a market from a distance. Estate agents, often the first call for people buying from overseas, are working on behalf of the vendor and are aiming to get the best possible price for a property. They may be reluctant to give a true picture of the market, particularly if prices are falling. Other information sources can be confusing. The best course of action is to have someone working on your behalf who will give you a clear and concise impression of the market, and help you deal in it.
We recommend that you discuss your requirements with us at an early stage, even before you’re ready to buy. It’s not unusual for us to start talking to clients as much as two years before they actually want to move. The more we understand your motivations and requirements, the more able we are to find you the right property.
We offer a full search and acquisition service including finding, analyzing, negotiating, and pursuing the purchase through to a successful conclusion, saving you time, money and stress, and ensuring you are fully aware of all the issues and legalities.
