How to buy a property in London? – if you are not there…. Buying a property can be a daunting prospect and living thousands of miles away from where you want to buy does not make this any easier. We had talked about buying a property in London for a long time, but not being there, not knowing the market, and with little time to spare to look into this, buying remained an elusive idea for a long time. What we really needed were some words of encouragement, someone we trusted and a helping hand. And all this we got through Homesafe London Lettings. Leigh and Carol were our eye in London, continuously suggesting and reviewing properties on the market that fit our specifications. Once we had identified “our” property, they linked us to a lawyer and surveyor, guided us through the language of contracts, continually ensuring our interests were met. Necessary repairs (both initial and ongoing) are quickly dealt with by Carol, looking at competitive quotes, efficiency, and good craftsmanship . This way the property was immediately ready for the rental market and rented successfully out in no time – with Carol advertising the property, meeting with potential tenants, vetting the selected tenant and arranging for all paperwork to be done.
