An off-market property in Notting Hill

Our client had been looking for a flat in Notting Hill for nearly a year but hadn’t been able to find anything suitable.

Her requirements were very specific in terms of location within Notting Hill and the key criteria were:

  1. A good garden
  2. The garden must be directly accessible from the reception or kitchen
  3. The reception & kitchen couldn’t be on the lower ground floor as they had to be light
  4. It had to be a minimum of 1000 sq.ft.

If you know the architecture of Notting Hill, then you will know that there are only a handful of properties that would meet these criteria.

As always, to find the best property your money can buy, it is essential to have a wide range of contacts to whom you have to TALK regularly, so you have first refusal on the finest homes and investments. This is one of the biggest mistakes buyers make: they simply trawl the websites, rely on emails or speak to only 5-10 estate agents on a weekly basis.

We contacted over 30 estate agents at least twice a week and also contacted our list of over 500 off-market contacts. Consequently, we located an off-market property within a few weeks which not only had all the features our client required but it also had the advantage of off-street parking too.

Unfortunately, this was not the smoothest of transactions due to the considerable incompetence of the seller’s solicitors, who were not only slow to respond but also failed to understand a pretty basic principle of property law which meant that the lease was defective despite having been accepted by the Land Registry (which was a mistake on the Registry’s part too).

Handling the rather unreliable seller and his solicitors was extremely time-consuming and proof once again that agreeing the price is really only the first hurdle in a property transaction. These “post price agreement” negotiations have to be handled in the correct manner otherwise a huge amount of time, money and stress can be wasted.

Fortunately, we were able to protect our client from the majority of issues:

“Throughout the transaction, Jeremy led on the trickier negotiations with the seller on my behalf, saving me time and sparing me the stress – he even managed to agree a price reduction. Jeremy’s depth of experience and insight were instrumental in achieving a brilliant result – I cannot recommend his services more highly.”
