Negotiation

Property buying agents act as skilled negotiators on behalf of their clients. They use their market knowledge to negotiate the best possible purchase price and contract terms with the seller or the seller’s agent.

We aim to secure a property at the most favourable terms for their client.

Due Diligence

Where the resources are available, they investigate various aspects, such as legal titles, planning permissions, building regulations, survey reports, and other relevant documentation.

This helps ensure the property is free from any potential legal or structural issues before making a purchase.
