Try before you buy

Our client, a film producer, was keen to move his family into Central London from rental accommodation in Richmond. He instructed us to find a “special” property, unfurnished with a good finish and plenty of lateral space, within easy reach of work and his children’s schools.

Our client travels extensively for work so we had a limited window of time during which to find the property. We put together a shortlist of suitable properties available in Notting Hill, Connaught Village and Primrose Hill. We were able to view these properties with our client in two afternoons, after which he picked a spacious 4 bedroom raised and lower ground apartment with high ceilings in Notting Hill.

During tenancy negotiations our client became interested in an off market opportunity to buy a very private townhouse. We changed tack quickly and were able to negotiate this difficult acquisition on his behalf.
