BUYING


In the demanding central London property market, buying property can be an overwhelming decision to make. Whether you are looking for a new home or making an investment, you need a professional opinion you can rely on. At The Real Property Experts, helping you to make the right decision is what we do best. 

Our clients can meet with the team to discuss their needs as a buyer. We will evaluate opportunities in the market by connecting buyers with our extensive portfolio of properties, agents, developers and relocation agents. For those seeking property in the coveted central London postcodes, including Mayfair and Knightsbridge, our network of sellers includes ‘off market’ opportunities, where homeowners prefer more discreet advertising.

At The Real Property Experts, we make the buying process simple. We will match our clients with their ideal property by going into the specifics of your requirements, including location, amenities, local schools, property layout and space. We also advise on independent financial advisors for mortgage arrangements. 

From there, we assist in the legal side of a client’s offer by advising on Stamp Duty (Land Tax), solicitors fees and how to navigate the formalities of the buying process. Once they have settled on their perfect deal, we assist in the transition to a new property and provide a welcome pack covering all essential information.

SELLING


With forty years’ combined experience, our Estate Agents are primed to deliver exceptional appraisals and specialist advice for selling property. 

Our agents offer a competitive fee structure and a proven track record of successful deals, so clients can ensure that their property is seen by the right buyers at the best price. Trained to exceptional standards, our agents give the highest possible valuation for each property by taking into account structural integrity, cosmetic features, overall condition and future potential.

Our agents will be at their clients’ disposal for the entirety of the selling process, from instructing a conveyancer and obtaining an EPC, to marketing and presenting property to buyers, right through to negotiating an offer and closing the best possible deal. Our process is designed to meet our clients’ needs at every step.  

RENTING


A happy rental property requires a home our clients can feel truly ‘at home’ in. At The Real Property Experts, we not only pride ourselves on being able to find our client’s perfect home, but in making the process straightforward and enjoyable. 

We assist with every process, from considering individual requirements right through to finding the perfect letting agreement to fit a client’s needs. Our team begins the rental search with an in-depth look into a client’s criteria, including budget, location and property size. We then source quality accommodation using our property and landlord networks to scope out the very best property on the market. 

Once we match a client with a property, we advise at every step towards securing a rental contract and signing the tenancy agreement. We are committed to providing all practical information and will offer swift guidance through all legal obligations.

LETTING


While compliance, procedures and obligation are part and parcel of the letting experience, we value how a well-managed property can put the focus on a tenant’s wellbeing. When a tenancy is thoroughly maintained, it increases the tenant’s satisfaction, and in turn, increases the landlord’s return on investment. For successful letting, our estate agents ensure quality tenants for every agreement.

At The Real Property Experts, we offer a rental management service which resolves issues, mitigates risk and oversees all administrative matters, so property owners can leave time-consuming tasks and unforeseen eventualities to the experts.

24-hour call out service
Rental collection
