This is a polite message to anyone who is thinking of making contact with us. We are a small property investment company with few staff. We are not an estate agency with a branch manager, sales people and admin support. The type of investors we work with are a certain type of investor and we want to make sure that you fit the bill. If you don't then no hard feelings. Maybe we can do business in the future. But please only contact us if you agree to our straight forward terms of engagement:
1. VIEWINGS ARE CONDUCTED AT THE FINAL STAGE OF THE TRANSACTION
We believe in the overarching principle that the tenant should be able to have quiet enjoyment of the property we provide for them. After all they pay our mortgages, wages and overheads so the last thing we want to do is upset them with multiple viewings by prospective buyers, agents, sourcers and surveyors.
The properties are in very basic condition but fully functional, legally compliant and free from any council improvement notices. If the numbers work for you and you accept that the properties will be in basic condition then we first get the legals out of the way and then do the viewings just before exchange to make sure you are happy with the property.
We do allow access for your surveyor and you can accompany them when they do the survey.
2. WE NEED TO SEE PROOF OF FUNDS
If you are a cash buyer we need to see you have access to funds for the full purchase price. If you are a mortgaged buyer we need to see you have access to the deposit and a Decision In Principle (DIP) from a lender.
3. WE SELL PROPERTIES ONE AT A TIME
If you are looking to buy quite a few English properties at once then all we ask is that you buy one property first to see how we get on. If we get on fine then multiple property purchases are possible.
4. WE REQUIRE A £100 DEPOSIT ON EVERY SALE AGREED
As you can imagine we get lots of interest in our properties due to the high returns and that they are ready made investments. Therefore we require a £100 deposit to reserve the property to you only. We like to call it a financial handshake to show willingness and commitment to the purchase.
