    1 million properties listed on Rightmove at any point in time

    3 billion property views

    • 50 million leads

    • 3 million transactions

    • 30,000 mystery shops

    Performance scores were compiled over three key areas:

    1. Marketing and lead generation

    2. Results (e.g. was the property sold or let?)

    3. Customer experience

    Village of the week.....Castleton
    image cannot be displayed

    Castleton is one of the most beautiful villages in the Peak District. It has an array of natural and historical features both above and below ground, and is surrounded by superb walking country. Whatever the weather Castleton has something to offer everyone. High above the village stand the imposing ruins of Peveril Castle. The castle was completed in 1086 for William Peverel, a favoured knight of William the Conqueror (although there is no proof that he was William's illegitimate son as is sometimes thought). Castleton has a full range of facilities for the visitor - whether it be cosy inns or welcoming B&Bs, self-catering cottages or well-stocked pubs, cafes or outdoor and souvenir shops. There is a Tourist Information Centre near the centre of the village, with a small museum about life in the area in times gone by, and adjacent to this, a large visitors' car park.

A brief guide to purchasing a property:
  • paragraph

    Buying a property
    Buying a home can be rather daunting for many people, especially for first time buyers or if you have not moved for many years. ELR are here to guide you every step of the way:
  • paragraph

    First Time Buyers
    If you are a first time buyer the best place to start your home search is to firstly discuss affordability/ mortgages with our financial advisor and get a mortgage agreed in principle. We are happy to organise an appointment to suit you. Once you have got an idea of what your budget is we can start to search for a suitable property. We will notify you of any suitable properties via our mailing list, instant alerts via text messages or emails, which will keep you fully advised of new listings.

  • paragraph

    Make an Offer

    Once you have decided on your property it is time to make an offer. Your offer will be financially qualified by ELR and we will request proof of funds:

    * copy of your mortgage agreed in principle (AIP)

    * copies of bank statements - proof of cash funds

    * two forms of identification - residential and photographic

    Please confirm the name of your solicitor, we can recommend local solicitors.

  • paragraph

    Sale Agreed
    If the offer is successful a sale is agreed, the property is then Sold Subject To Contract. At this point ELR will instruct solicitors and the legal work to transfer ownership of the property can commence. Your solicitor will be able to explain what Stamp Duty will apply to your purchase price, please budget for Stamp Duty!
  • paragraph


    Decide if you want a survey -

    Your mortgage lender will require a valuation by a surveyor, they will arrange this on your behalf. The lenders valuation is not an in depth inspection. You may decide you wish to have a more detailed report, if so we can recommend a local surveyor to you who will help you decide which survey is required.

    Alternatively if you are purchasing independently - no mortgage required, we can also assist and put you in contact with a local surveyor who will recommend what type of survey you need.

  • paragraph

    Arrange a Deposit
    Before you exchange on your new property you will need to ensure your solicitor is ready to do so. Your solicitor will request a deposit of 10% of the sale price of the property - this needs to be deposited with your solicitor before exchange can take place.
  • paragraph

    Exchange of Contracts

    Exchange takes place once your solicitor confirms that the deposit has been received and that there is nothing else outstanding relating to the sale/purchase. You need to be satisfied with all of the information your solicitor has provided during the conveyancing process. You need to be 100% committed at the point of exchange. When exchange takes place with the seller of the property the purchaser is then legally committed to purchasing the property.

    If you decided to pull out without due reason after exchange - your 10% deposit can be forfeit.

    At the point of exchange, you need to have organised building insurance on your new property. Our financial advisor can assist with all insurance enquiries.

  • paragraph

    Completion is the day that you pay for the property and take ownership. On completion day, the money is transferred and the deeds of the property are transferred, between both seller and purchasers solicitor.

    Headed up by our experienced auctioneer Nick Riddle, the auction department at ELR is continuing to grow in popularity, creating a niche for properties that offer something 'that little bit different'.

    Our quarterly auctions held at the splendid Maynard Arms Hotel in Grindleford have attracted great crowds, creating a real buzz in the room and resulting in some exceptional sold prices.

    If you have a property which is unusual, has holes in the roof, a wonky gable end, or even something that is 'just hard to pigeonhole'; you should consider contacting Nick and our dedicated team to discuss whether selling at auction may be the right option for you.
