WHY LANDMARK?
  • paragraph

    The first thing to do when searching for a quality estate agent is to check that they belong to a professional body like the NAEA. This is because all members have to complete an accredited qualification on estate agency and are bound by strict rules that offer you fairness, integrity and high standards. Landmark are proud members of the NAEA and ARLA. We are also full members of the Ombudsman Scheme for Estate Agents.

    LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

    Is something we possess in abundance. Now in our 20th year, we have first-hand knowledge of our market place, its history and future growth. As investors ourselves in this diverse and exciting area of London, we are only too aware of the need for such in-depth market awareness and knowledge.

    VALUATIONS

    Some estate agents believe that the best and quickest way to secure your instruction to sell is simply by over valuation. This tactic benefits no one, except perhaps the agent themselves. After a week or two, having allowed your property to languish on the internet, they will ask that you agree to a reduction in the asking price. If you consider the fact that properties gain the most interest during their first week of marketing, it is hard to quantify the detrimental effect this practice has upon the marketing of your property. There are numerous tools available on-line to potential buyers in order that they are able to be more market savvy. Furthermore, the reduction in the asking price in itself sends out the wrong messaging to the market place.We believe in providing sound honest and achievable appraisals based on the current market, comparable evidence, and daily feedback from our dealings with numerous surveyors, and by discussing with you the client, your expectations.

    SERVICE

    Is key, during what is often deemed the most stressful of times, moving home! We provide weekly updates on progress until a sale is agreed, including reports to show how your property has performed from a marketing perspective. After a sale is agreed, our work on your behalf continues. The progression of any sale is a crucial element in achieving the successful and timely completion of the desired transaction. This includes speaking to, and chasing up solicitors acting for both parties, and assisting in the resolution of any issues that may subsequently arise. These are often minor, but our intervention and pro-active approach have proven on numerous occasions to be essential.

    Our history means a great deal to us, but it's the future that counts.

    Buying a property with Landmark Estates.
    • paragraph

      This guide is designed to explain the necessary steps and processes involved in the somewhat drawn out procedure of buying property in the UK. We hope you find it useful in planning what in most cases, is the largest financial commitment you will ever undertake.


      Arrange finance.

      If you require finance for your purchase, it is essential before even commencing your search to establish how much you are able to borrow, based on your circumstances. Use the internet to find the best possible deals currently on offer, or use an approved mortgage broker, or financial advisor. For a quick, rough guide to the amount you may be able to borrow try the calculator at www.moneysupermarket.com .Landmark have no in-house or commercial partnership with any company offering financial services , as we believe this could lead to a conflict of interest. We would always advise seeking good independent advice.

      Once your application is approved by your chosen lender, you will receive a "Mortgage agreement in Principal" which will confirm the amount available for your purchase. Though the lender will no doubt remind you when assessing your budget do remember the additional costs you will incur, such as Stamp Duty, lenders fees, valuation and survey fees, solicitors search and conveyancing costs, and any removal fees.


      Select a solicitor.

      A good solicitor or licenced conveyancer will deal with all legal and administrative work necessary in order to complete your purchase, and therefore the transfer of ownership. We would strongly advise using a firm that has local knowledge or at the very least of the London market. Our experience has shown that on occasion instructing solicitors who have little or no experience in this market place, can add additional unnecessary time and stress to the buying process.


      Register your requirements.

      At Landmark you can do this on our web-site www.lmlondon.com/register, by telephone 020 7515 0800, e-mail info@lmlondon.cm , or in person at our offices. Once registered you will be contacted by telephone or e-mail when a property fitting your requirements is listed, to both discuss in detail and in order to arrange a convenient time for viewing.


      Making an offer.

      Once you have decided on your proposed purchase, you will need to make a formal offer via a member of our sales team. Do remember that they are precluded by law from giving you details of any previous offers, or the price at which the vendor may accept.


      Good news, the sale is agreed!

      Having successfully negotiated a price with the Vendor, we will then issue what is known as a "memorandum of sale" which details the conditions of the sale and the price agreed, this is then sent to both parties and their solicitors, and the legal process begins. Please ensure your solicitors have all the information and any required monies for local searches etc. In due course your lenders will arrange a valuation survey, access would be arranged through Landmark as the selling agent. Should your purchase be an older property and / or one requiring building work, you would be advised to request a more detailed structural survey. Providing the lender is happy with the valuation, and the comparable evidence to support it, they will confirm matters in writing, and therefore give the "green light" to proceed with the purchase.


      Exchange of Contracts.

      Once the formal mortgage offer is received, and your solicitor is happy to proceed, a date for the exchange of contracts will be agreed. On this date a non - refundable deposit (equivalent to 10% of purchase price) will be passed to the vendor's solicitor, and both parties will sign a legally binding contract. N.B. Should you withdraw from the purchase after the exchange of contracts you would lose the 10% are would in all probability be sued for breach of contract.


      Completion of Sale

      Usually occurs within 7 days of exchange, and is the day on which the balance of the purchase is transferred to the vendor's solicitors. Once the funds have cleared the sale is complete, and the vendor gives vacant possession, the keys! Enjoy your new home.

      It  is advisable, especially if you are first time buyers, to first check your credit history, the events of the past few years have led to much stricter lending criteria, and sometimes a simple late payment on a credit card or other minor occurrence can cause a problem . If you proceeded to apply for finance and were declined based on the examples given, it would only further damage your credit history. It is very simple to do this by using one of the major credit agencies at minimum cost, try either Experian (www.experian.co.uk ) or Equifax (www.equifax.co.uk). If you do discover a negative against your financial history, do not panic! Both websites contain excellent advice on how to resolve matters.

      TESTIMONIALS
      • Introduction

        Vendor 
        I put my flat on the market through Landmark Estates. My contacts,Spencer and David  were helpful and efficient, and sensitive to the fact that I had a tenant in the flat who had to be contacted, and their belongings not disturbed by prospective purchasers looking round the flat. They marketed the property well and kept me informed each week of progress. The property sold quickly. Ms Dimsdale

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        I cannot thank Landmark enough HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
        When I started my property company in 2002 I purchased one or two properties through Landmark. As they were geographically well located to the E14 properties, it made sense to use them to find tenants for same. I was able to talk openly about what level of service I would expect to receive and I can confidently say that the staff bent over backwards to ensure that all services were agreeable to both parties. I tried other agents, but always came back to Landmark. I will openly admit that I am not the easiest of people to please, but unfailingly Landmark and their remarkable staff are there to smooth the way, I cannot thank Landmark enough for their help recently and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
      • Seller Testimonial

        how much I value the service
