    In an increasingly complex and regulated environment, GSC Grays will work with you to determine the exact nature of the report that you require and tailor the valuation to those requirements, be it for secured lending, the purchase of a property, probate, matrimonial disputes, tax planning, compulsory purchase, compensation or insurance re-instatement purposes.

    Planning and Development
    image cannot be displayed

    Over the last few years GSC Grays have been heavily involved in advising on the development potential of clients' property. In light of the changing planning environment we offer a pro-active service, working with other advisers to maximise value and to ease the planning process.

    The publication of the National Planning Policy Framework in 2012 and the recent widening of the Permitted Development Rights, has radically altered the planning environment to provide excellent opportunities for the promotion of development sites at all scales. Our experience shows that the economic recovery is now providing market demand for these sites.

    GSC Grays operate across the full spectrum of development sites, both in terms of size and use. We are involved in the long term promotion of strategic housing and mixed use developments, whilst continuing to promote smaller, and short term sites.

    Our bespoke development appraisals allow the effective production of detailed business plans. These can be used for initial feasibility studies or in support of loan/grant applications.

    GSC Grays can provide a critique of any development proposals to ensure that clients understand the project risks and the benefits which might come from further advice.

    GSC Grays act for a diverse range of clients and have management responsibilities across County Durham, Yorkshire, Northumberland and Cumbria discharging this role through both resident and non-resident agents.

    The circumstances that give rise to either seeking or renewing estate and property management services are rare and need full consideration, especially as these situations are frequently sensitive. From a sporting perspective, we understand the mechanics of both upland and lowland sporting estates and at GSC Grays you will find that we have the sort of expertise which only comes with a lifelong involvement within the sport.

    Once a client's requirements have been identified, we work with the client and their advisers to ensure that the service provided, either on an ad hoc or retained basis, is delivered in an efficient, economic and timely manner.

    GSC Grays have over ten years' experience in the renewables sector and are familiar with in house and developer led projects. We have extensive experience acting for landowners to negotiate terms for rented sites and assisting the progression of their own projects.

    Renewable technologies offer a range of opportunities to access inflation proof income, either by way of direct support (Feed in Tariff or Renewable Heat Incentive) or rental income from land let to a third party.

    We are familiar with most farm and estate based technologies, from wind turbines to solar to woodchip boilers. We combine our involvement in owner and developer led projects with our property management experience. This means that we are ideally placed to advise on the most suitable technology and the best way to progress your project.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Would have no hesitation in recommending GSC Grays
      We are writing to thank you and your team at Richmond, for securing the sale of our house. From the initial marketing through viewings, feedback and the sale we were kept informed. Should any of our local friends consider selling their houses, we would have no hesitation in recommending GSC Grays of Richmond." Mr & Mrs C
    • Seller Testimonial

      gave us great confidence...
      " Please accept our thanks for your agency's assistance in our recent house sale. Under the recent climate we were becoming increasingly frustrated in our attempts to sell our property. We made the decision to switch to your company and we were very pleased not only with your initial advice but also the very proactive approach of your sales staff, especially Jill, who acted in a very professional and knowledgeable manner. Her regular communication gave us great confidence that we would be successful in finding a buyer, finding prospective purchasers with requirements closely matching our property, resulting in a successful sale. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services." Thanks again, Steve and Jane
    • Seller Testimonial

      I am very pleased with the standard of service
      "I am very pleased with the standard of service provided by GSC Grays Richmond. Our sale was carried out professionally and with the minimum of fuss. I would absolutely recommend their service to any vendor." Nick & Angie
    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent and very professional

      "We decided to put our house on the market in February 2014. Prior to valuations we did research ourselves and came to our conclusion of a sensible and fair asking price. We were very keen to achieve a quick sale at the true value of the property, not to put it on the market over priced and have months of wasted viewings. We selected agents to carry out valuations. Our selection was based on a number of factors:

      • some local knowledge having previously visited homes as potential buyers and witnessed first hand the complete lack of follow up by some local agents

      • the quality of websites and marketing material

      • looking at the time local, similar properties took to sell with various agents.

      The valuations were conducted and fees discussed. We chose GSC Grays, not because they gave the highest valuation, they didn't but they did give in our opinion the most sensible and realistic price to sell the property and gave an evidenced rationale for the valuation.

      The preparation for sale and subsequent marketing was excellent. We particularly liked the visit to our home by the office based staff. This is apparently standard practice and allows them to know what they were talking about and be able to answer questions from potential purchasers. We had 7 viewings within the two weeks of going to market and offers from two separate parties within two weeks and agreed a sale soon afterwards. The contact from the team at GSC Grays throughout the following weeks and up to completion was excellent and we were kept updated with progress regularly. We felt the service from GSC Grays was excellent and very professional, indeed what one should expect but sadly do not always get from Estate Agents." Andy

    • Seller Testimonial

      thank you and your colleagues
      "I would like to thank you and your colleagues for all the help, advice and support given to me during my recent move. It was reassuring to know you were at the end of the phone when needed and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends" Miss W from Richmond
    • Seller Testimonial

      could not have chosen a better estate agent
      "We could not have chosen a better estate agent. Excellent work from start to finish from all the well motivated professionals with whom we came into contact. The house was well marketed and communications were superb: we were kept well informed at all times".   Miss H, Eppleby

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      listened carefully to our needs
      Coming to Grays as buyers, we gave Jill our wish list. Rather than flooding us with 'possibles', she listened carefully and then without hesitation showed us just one house that met the vast majority of our needs. In the following negotiations, without prejudicing loyalty to the selling client, she gave us all the information and help that we needed to conclude a successful purchase. Thanks to Jill, we are very happy in a house that suits us completely. Can't ask for more than that. " Geoffrey
    • Buyer Testimonial

      could not have asked for better service
      We have just relocated from Windsor in Berkshire to Melsonby in North Yorkshire, and so needed to both view properties and organise the move across a 250-mile gap. The house that we have moved to is in the beautiful village of Melsonby, and our principal agents for this move were GSC Grays in Richmond. We found Jill and the team not only very pleasant to deal with, but also very efficient and thorough with their planning, negotiating and communications. House moves are always stressful, but the guys made the whole process stress-free and we could not have asked for better service or expertise. Thanks guys! Mr M, Melsonby
