ARE YOU A TENANT?
  • paragraph

    Greenwood James understand that renting a property can be a daunting prospect especially if it is the first time or a particularly stressful reason for needing to move. We have a team of qualified staff with years of experience to guide you through the process.

    All our rental properties are available with internal photographs on our website and major property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla, or call into our office to have a property tour, but be quick! The rental market is fast moving and quality properties are snapped up.

    Once you have found a property that you are interested in, contact us to arrange a viewing, be flexible with times and dates, many properties are marketed in the last month of an existing tenancy and notice must be given to the current tenant for viewings. You may need to take time out of work to secure a property that you like. Viewings are not conducted at night and therefore weekend appointments are booked up quickly. A more flexible viewer may pip you to the post.

    It is always beneficial to both you, Greenwood James and your prospective Landlord that criteria's are established prior to viewing, such as: Do you have any pets? Are you in full time employment and if so do your earnings meet the levels required to rent? the general rule of thumb for this being - multiply the rental asking price per calendar month by 12 months and again by 2.5, this will give the figure you are required to earn per year to meet the referencing criteria and leave you with sufficient monies to pay other outgoings such as utilities and council tax.

    Make a good impression: Be friendly!

    Having found a suitable house or flat to rent, what happens next? We will ask you for an application fee which is payable at the time of your application. We will then begin the administrative process of requesting references on your behalf, full guidance notes on the process will be supplied to you

    Information required includes

    • Previous landlords - you will be asked to give the details of where you have lived within the last 3 years
    • A credit check will be conducted.
    • Your bank details - including bank name, account number and sort-code
    • Details of your employment - your employer, job title, payroll number, salary, previous employer, etc.

    Sometimes referencing decisions will require you to provide a guarantor if for example your earnings are not quite enough to cover the rental payments or if you have only recently started in your job. Your guarantor will be required to undergo the checks as above to enable you to achieve the appropriate rating set by the referencing agency. They will be expected to pay the rental should there be any default during the tenancy and they will also be held responsible for the upkeep of the property. Do not worry if this situation does apply to you, it is not uncommon and we will be able to explain the details at every step of the way.

    There are likely to be further questions you may have, many will be answered in the Government guide "How to rent" which can be viewed ON OUR WEBSITE greenwoodjames.co.uk Alternatively, contact our team on 01204 396357.

    In compliance with local authority guidelines, there are restrictions on the total number of people that may occupy a given rental property. Our guidelines allow two people per bedroom as long as that room is at least 10.2 square meters in size. Bedrooms of 6.5 square meters are suitable for one person. These guidelines are to prevent overcrowding and are in keeping with the limitations of the property.

Their team of contractors are excellent; always delivering a good service for a fair price...never have I felt overcharged for any maintenance conducted on the property. What really makes the company special are the stuff, particular of note are Claire and Suzanne, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, I would recommend you most strongly to any friends and family, a thing I rarely do these days!

      SELLERS TOP TIPS
      We all know not to judge a book by its cover, but first impressions do count - so make sure you do everything in your power to enjoy a quick and easy sale. 

      Remember ... It's not 'what' is on offer, but how it's offered with polish! 

       You know what it's like to be a potential purchaser, so try and see your property through the eyes of a buyer. 

      To help you, we have put together some handy hints that our clients have found beneficial in the past.

      • Inviting - make sure the front door to your property looks welcoming. Potted flowers or shrubs can really make a difference - make sure you have no evil weeds lurking in your garden too. 
      •  Spring clean - whatever time of year it is, ensure your windows are gleaming, paintwork is washed down with hot soapy water and sweep your pathway clear of debris and leaves. 
      •  Cut the lawn - this makes such a difference to the appearance of your garden and the smell of freshly cut grass is a natural inviting fragrance. 
      •  Fences and gates - a quick lick of paint will bring life to a tired old fence and a drop of oil will sort out your squeaky gate. 
      •  Rubbish - make sure you get rid of all rubbish - it looks uninviting and is not the sort of first impression that you want to make.  
      • De-clutter - potential buyers need to visualise what they can do with the space, so make sure you get rid of any clutter. 
      • How clean is your house? - A clean and tidy house is more likely to sell quickly and achieve the best price. 
      •  Freshen up - not everyone likes pets, so if you have a cat or dog make sure you banish any nasty smells and open windows before a viewing. 
      •  Carpets - you should consider getting them steam cleaned - it's a small investment that could potentially help sell your home quicker. 
      •  Décor - make your property looks more appealing by touching up any scuffs with a fresh lick of paint. Sparkle and shine - a spray of polish and a little elbow grease will show potential buyers that your home has been well looked after.
      • Fix it - make sure you replace light bulbs, fix leaking taps, mend the drawer in the kitchen or whatever else that needs doing, because unfinished jobs will send out the wrong message. 
      •  Kitchens and bathrooms - when it comes to a viewer making an offer, these two rooms will have a massive influence. Ensure both rooms are clean, tidy and smelling fresh. Take unnecessary items off all surfaces, put clean towels in your bathroom and empty the bins. 
      • Fresh coffee - the smell of bread or a cake baking in the oven, they might sound like old clichés, but such delicious smells have a positive influence on purchasers. Why do you think supermarkets have a bakery in store? 
      •  Laundry - no one wants to see your smalls drying on the radiator so make sure that the pile of ironing and the next load of washing is out of sight. If you'd like more advice on selling your home, call us.
    • paragraph

      SALES PROGRESSION
      Sales progression is the process of the sale beginning with an offer being accepted right through the legal proceedings and the completion of a sale. 

      Our dedication throughout this process is a vital part of the service we provide to you. Statistics indicate that one in two property sales fail to complete with the main offenders in the breakdown being lack of communication and understanding of the actual process. 

      At Greenwood James, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in guiding our clients through the entire process; offering support and advice at every stage until they successfully own the property. 

      We work hard to ease stress and frustration during this time and ensure every avenue is thoroughly explored. Rest assured we will maintain communication with all parties; gathering information and keeping in regular contact with buyers and sellers throughout the legal process.

      Useful advice for sellers: 
      Instruct your solicitor at the earliest stage. This way they can prepare documentation and help the sale move more efficiently. 

      Get your paper work together. Ensure you have all the documentation relating to your property to hand. This could include any work you have had done to the property, planning permission, guarantees and certificates. If you are selling a flat or leasehold, try to ensure that your ground rent or management charges are paid up-to-date with receipts.

      Complete and return all paperwork from your solicitor as soon as possible; for example, the fixtures and fittings enquiry form. If you need any advice about selling, don't hesitate to contact us.

      THE SELLING PROCESS
      Accurate Market Appraisal  
      At Greenwood James, it is our aim to sell your property for the best possible price within your required time scale. We completely understand that it can be difficult to decide who is the best person to help you to sell your house, after all it is probably your biggest financial asset. You may obtain more than one valuation, but it does not follow that it is also in your best interest to appoint an agent who gives you the highest valuation - they may not be able to sell it at that price! A better basis for comparison is to ask what the agents will actually be doing in order to sell your property. Our experienced Valuations team not only carries out a large number of valuations each week, but conducts extensive research on properties available, providing us with detailed knowledge of property values in your area. This proves invaluable when it comes to setting a price for your property. In fact as a company we have a strong track record of achieving very close to the asking price on behalf of our clients. To arrange a complimentary no obligation market appraisal of your property, please call our office to book an appointment.

      Appointing an estate agent When choosing an estate agent, some important factors for you to consider are: Reputation (our testimonials speak for themselves)

      Whether or not the agent offers to accompany viewings, their presence in the area, what is their approach to marketing, how will they generate maximum exposure for a property. We hope you find Greenwood James ticks every box. 

      An efficient solicitor is vital to the progression on the sale of a property. We regularly work with solicitors and can recommend those who we have a good relationship with and who will be most helpful and effective with your transaction. Please do not hesitate to ask us for those recommendations.

      Making the right impression First impressions count and it makes sense to present your property in the best light possible in order to achieve the maximum price. Please visit our Sellers Top Tips for advice on how to present your property in the best possible way. 

      Marketing your property Before we can begin marketing your property, it's a legal requirement for you to apply for an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). You can either arrange this yourself or Greenwood James can arrange it for you on your behalf at a very competitive price.

      Upon instruction Greenwood James will create full colour property sales particulars. Once approved by you this particulars will automatically be emailed to all relevant applicants. Your property brochure will be displayed within our office and a proactive marketing plan will be implemented to ensure your property receive maximum exposure across a broad spectrum of media, to include our website, major property portals and newspaper advertising. 

      We now operate in an age where the phone only rings once a potential purchaser has sufficient enthusiasm about a property they have seen, quite often via the internet. Therefore our properties need to jump out of the search results and not be missed. 

      Accompanied Viewings At Greenwood James our office is open 9am - 5.30 pm Monday to Friday and Saturday 10am - 3pm, viewings by appointment are normally conducted within these hours. However we appreciate that these times are not always convenient for potential purchaser, se we endeavour to be flexible and arrange viewings outside of these hours if necessary and subject to availability. 

      Offers & Acceptance As soon as we receive an offer from a potential purchaser, we will notify you and advise of any special conditions at this time. The negotiation of the offer can often take some time until we obtain a price that is agreeable to both parties. We will also check the purchaser's ability to proceed by asking for proof of funds and a chain check to confirm their position in order for you to make an informed choice as to whether to accept the offer. Once the offer is accepted, we will confirm the solicitors who are acting for both parties. In writing a sales memorandum will be issued confirming the sale agreed price, solicitors and any special inclusions. 

      Sales Progression Our dedication to this process is a vital part for your sale to proceed to completion. A close eye and contact is kept on the progression  of the sale; surveys, searches, chain related sales, draft contracts being issued, enquires raised and answered, assistance with reports for any potential building defects, gaining agreement for a provisional date for exchange of contracts and subsequent completion. We are here to help you through this process every step of the way.

      Exchange of Contracts & Completion Exchange of contract can happen prior to completion or indeed simultaneously on the same day as completion. Usually once the contract is signed by both parties and a deposit is paid the exchange of contracts can take effect. On the day of completion, the balance of the purchase price is transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor and once funds have cleared, keys will be released to the purchaser and the selling process is complete.

      Buying Process
      **Finance
      Before you start looking for a property to purchase it's important to have a clear idea of how much you can afford to spend and to have a mortgage agreed in principle if one is required. This will help ensure that any offer you make will be taken seriously, something that's particularly important when multiple buyers are competing for the same property. At Greenwood James we recommend using an independent financial advisor's, who generally have access to the entire market and exclusive rates to help find you the best mortgage deals available. Speak to our sales team and we will be delighted to introduce you to one of the Financial Advisor's we regularly refer to.

      **Register your requirements 
      Once your finances are in hand, next we will need to register your details by phoning or visiting our office. With a wide range of properties we are confident of finding you exactly what you're looking for.

      **Arranging a viewing
      Make sure you regularly check our in-store and on line portfolio of properties, then once you see a property you like, call us and we'll arrange a time that's suitable for you and our vendor.  

      **Following the viewing 
       We will contact you for feedback. It is essential that we get this because, if the property you have viewed doesn't suit your requirements, we can alter our search for you. Your feedback is also incredibly helpful to the vendor as they may need to make changes to their property to benefit the sale.

      **Making an offer
      Once you have found the perfect property, call us to make an offer and we'll negotiate with the vendor on your behalf. We do recommend that your offer is as close to the asking price as possible as this will put you in a stronger position to secure the property and enhance your status with the seller. 

      **Fixtures and fittings 
      If there are items that you would specifically like to include in the sale, you should ideally mention this when you submit your offer. However, when your offer has been accepted, the seller will complete a fixture and fitting list detailing items included in the sale. This will be included in the paperwork received by your solicitor/conveyancer.

      **Once your offer has been accepted 
      We will keep in contact with you guiding you through the entire process, telling you when you need to  apply for your mortgage,   instruct your solicitor/conveyancer, arrange a survey, sign contracts, exchange contracts, agree on a suitable moving day, arrange buildings and content insurance.

       From initial enquiry right through to the day you complete, we'll be there to help you find and secure your dream property.

      Mortgages
      Mortgages When it comes to securing a mortgage, we understand the process can be a little bit daunting. 

      We often find that most people have fairly basic requirements with the two key questions being 'How much can I borrow?' and 'How much will my repayments be?' It could be for your first home, when you are looking to move up the property ladder, investing in a buy-to-let property or re-mortgaging. 

      Buying a new home is one of the biggest financial commitments many of us will ever make and knowing where to start in arranging the finance to buy can be bewildering. 

       We offer independent, impartial advice, and as we're not affiliated with any one group, we're able to search the entire market to find you the best deal with our pre-approval scheme. We can arrange a sit down appointment or a telephone consultation at a time to suit you. 

      Even if you haven't yet found your property, we always recommend getting you finances sorted first. 

       We will also arrange: Face to face interviews with a financial advisor either in an office location or the comfort of your own home Form filling Mortgage progression Flexible appointments 

       Come and discuss your requirements with us today or arrange a flexible home appointment; contact us on 01204 396357 

      **YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE

      • Seller Testimonial

        My Experience using Greenwood James was 1st Class
        Claire & Suzanne, Can I just take this opportunity to thank Greenwood James for the tireless work they have put in during the sale of my house. Could you please pass my thanks on to all the team. Heidi in particular who was my main contact dealing with the sale. It was in my interest to get the sale of my house through as soon as possible and Heidi and the rest of the team made that happen. The team were on the phone to me, with updates and information whenever needed. It's very hard to find many companies these days who can maintain a professional work ethic, yet still provide you with that personal touch on a one to one basis no matter how busy they are. The team at Greenwood James seemed to provide this effortlessly. I must admit I was dreading having the stress of a house sale on top of my busy work load, but it hasn't been stressful in the slightest. It's been totally hassle free and I think this goes to show what a fantastic team you have working at Greenwood James. Should I ever move house again or know of anybody moving house, I will certainly recommend Greenwood James as the first port of call. Thanks again for all your hard work. P.S. Having just proof read this, I noticed I've mentioned the word 'Team' quite often. I think this illustrates why my experience using Greenwood James was first class. Thanks, Ian

        Service standards were as high as ever
        Hi Claire, We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all you have done on our behalf with the sale of Tottington Road. Once again the service was excellent and I would be grateful if you could pass on a particular thank you to Heidi for keeping us up to date throughout the process as I know this one was not as straightforward a property to deal with as the previous ones. Nevertheless the service standards were as high as ever. Hopefully it won't be long before the next one is with you. Thanks once again. Darren & Janet Hall
