Buying for overseas client

Why they came to Stacks

Currently living in Hong Kong, needing a house in London so they can visit children at school in England.


What they were looking for

A house which is in an area that they could access both schools as well as offer capital growth over time and could be rented out if needed.


What the local area could offer

Lots of green areas and space, good shops and restaurants and good transport for the rest of the UK


How Stacks helped

Once the budget and type of property was decided we offered a selection of areas which would suit the budget and lifestyle whilst also being a good potential area for capital growth and rentability.


The happy outcome

Whilst the client was overseas, we had many zoom calls and made videos of each property to get a good idea of what they were like. Once the client landed in London we had a clear picture of the areas and types of properties which could work. We then negotiated on the house which they selected in Wimbledon having also looked at other areas such as SE1 and Marylebone.


How Stacks made a difference

E.g. We brought:

  • Extensive knowledge of many areas of London and knowing which would best suit the client’s needs.
  • Our contacts to discover a property that wasn’t officially on the market for sale
  • Our technical knowledge to liaise with the estate agent, specialist suppliers, insurers, and solicitors
  • Experience of buying for overseas clients whom have not bought int eh UK before and being able to explain the leasehold system as well as the conveyancing process.
