BL&CO boast exceptionally broad sales experiences and excellent local knowledge of London’s niche markets. Customer Service is paramount, as is going the extra mile for all our clients.
Every property big or small is of equal importance to us and requires its own creative marketing strategy in order to achieve the best possible price in your ideal timescale. BL&CO offer Sole (one agent), Joint-Sole (two agents) and Multiple (three plus agents) Agency services. Our fees reflect our ability to offer you the finest possible service available and deliver you value for money. We recommend discussing with a member of our team which service would be most suitable for your individual situation and property. As an independent agent we have the ability to adapt and tailor our services and advertise in niche sectors for specialist property.
Offers to Purchase
We strongly recommend that all our prospective buyers have finance in place (if required) and have instructed a solicitor prior to making an offer on a property. All offers are submitted to our vendors in writing in accordance with the Estate Agents Act 1979 (and Estate Agents Regulations 1991) and thoroughly discussed and verified with all parties. It is important that you understand the process of buying a property in London as it is very different from elsewhere in the world. Your solicitor will take care of the majority of the process but it is essential that you keep in regular communication with them and your agent, to keep momentum going and show your sincerity as a purchaser or vendor.
Importantly, we have a historic and significant network of professionals who we work with and who’s work we value, in all required sectors, from legal, financial and tax, to surveying specialists and so on. Employing trustworthy professionals is absolutely key to the smooth and efficient progress and successful completion of a sale and for us to execute our duties to the best of our ability. If you would like to benefit from a recommendation please just ask any of the team.
It is worth while exploring your financial implications and third party finance options to search for the best deal for you and your lifestyle. We are able to introduce you to exceptionally experienced specialists who deal with, not only retail banks but private banks across the world and have the ability to source finance abroad, arrange offshore companies, Special Purpose Vehicles and deliver related advice.
Conveyancing Solicitors & AD Law
It is imperative that you instruct a competent solicitor to act for you, who has a track record in concluding transactions in the local area, who understands leases in the vicinity, associated complications and can give advice accordingly. In so many transactions, time is of the essence for many reasons, and having a reliable solicitor could be the difference between you acquiring your perfect home or selling your investment and facing that unfortunate fall through sale. It pays off to do your research before you instruct a solicitor and we are more than happy to help guide you to a range of firms with exceptional local experience.
Alternatively BL&CO actually boast an ‘in-house’ solicitor. AD Law is a reputable solicitors practice with wide ranging experience and they operate from within our branch although remain a completely independent firm from BL&CO. We find it is an exceptionally helpful tool to be able to have first class legal advice on hand for our team and for any of our clients. You can contact AD Law directly on 0203 204 1110 or visit their site www.adlawonline.com . The time saving and efficiency benefits to our clients of having the conveyancing solicitor within the same office can be the difference between a successful sale and otherwise and we highly recommend their services.
Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
There is a requirement by law to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which must be ordered prior to marketing a property but there is no longer a requirement to have a Home Information Pack. An EPC is valid for 10 years and therefore there may already be one available for your property, but otherwise we are happy to arrange for an EPC to be ordered on your behalf at a competitive cost.
We have an excellent network of contacts, across the globe, to source and sell ‘off market’ property and exclusive residences in London which require a discrete sale. BL&CO understand that many of our clients require privacy and confidentiality throughout the sale of their property. Please speak to one of the Sales team for further information on the advantages and disadvantages of proceeding with such an approach.
BL&CO would be delighted to have the opportunity to sell your property and prove to you that we are the best agents around and exceptional value for money.
