Your Home London — Property in London and the UK — buying and investing
Your Home London is an independent property agent based in London: we work with overseas clients who are interested in buying or investing into the real estate in London and the UK. We specialise on the best residential areas in terms of location and investment potential in London and the UK. We also help with the property management so that our clients do not need to come to London. We represent the interests of property buyers and investors and work with clients from all over the world, including Russia and CIS, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South America and Europe.
Our focus is on high yielding and liquid residential and commercial real estate in London. We also consider alternative investment options such as student accommodation, property refurbishment and construction projects.
Our objective is to help our clients to make the right decision when purchasing a family or second home or an investment property by using our knowledge, experience and wide contacts in London and eventually save their time and money.
We provide the high quality support throughout the purchasing process and recommend the most experienced solicitors and tax advisers. We are working with the leading developers and real estate agencies in London and in the UK. You can find some of the best new developments in London in our catalogue: most of the developments can be purchased at the early stage of construction (off-plan), which gives you an excellent opportunity to gain a great return on invested capital. In case you do not find any suitable options in our catalogue, we will strive to carry out extensive search to find the right property meeting your requirements.
We advise our clients on choosing the best area in London from various perspectives, e.g. investment returns, amenities, transport links and so on. We source property in London and in the UK that meets your requirements. Once we have found the property we will negotiate the best deal price. To provide legal support of the purchase, we will recommend professional solicitors and surveyors. If you buy a Buy-to-let property, we can help with furnishing it, finding a tenant and providing overall management of the property. We can also advise our clients on tax and visa issues and help with a mortgage application in the UK.
How we work
Our service starts with a free initial meeting or call when we discuss your requirements such as location, property type, budget, number of bedrooms, floor area, expected return on investment, public transport access, local amenities such as shops, schools and hospitals etc. Based on your budget and requirements we will give you initial suggestions about potential options and discuss with you what area of London to consider, what property type to think about, potential pitfalls to be aware of or any other questions you may have at this stage. Then we will look through properties available in our catalogue. If any of these are of interest to you and you decide to go ahead with a purchase your expenses in this case will only include the cost of the real estate and legal and tax expenses. We will provide you with the full support from the moment of choosing a property until the purchase deal is complete.
Alternatively if none of the options from our catalogue meets your criteria we will carry on search to shortlist up to 5 potentially interesting properties from the market. We will arrange viewings, negotiate the best price and recommend and co-ordinate solicitors, surveyors, tax and mortgage advisers.
In this case the cost of our service will be 2% of the purchase price. We will start property search after the deposit of £500 is paid, which will be included into the total cost of our services. Although your expenses will be higher, this service is designed to help save your time spent on market research, contacting various real estate agents, sifting through various properties and viewing arrangements. From our experience for clients who are reside outside the UK this approach is perhaps the only way to find and buy the best property at the right price avoiding financial risks; ultimately you will save money working with us.
