Many investors see the attractions to buying a quality freehold house or an established apartment in one of London’s many quality buildings. Refurbishing such a property has many attractions including increasing its value and appeal to both the owner-occupier and rental markets. Owner–occupiers are attracted to newly refurbished properties and this increases their appeal in the re-sale market.

The service we provide

We have have had extensive property development and refurbishment experience
Through our property search service we can identify suitable properties that require refurbishment and which will make sound investments.

We can also assist investors who have identified a property and require our assistance to refurbish it.We have had extensive experience in refurbishing property in London.

The first step is to determine the extent of the work to be carried out and the cost of doing it. In order to avoid cost overruns, it is important that a detailed budget is prepared and that this be adhered to.

We work closely with leading firms of architects based in the UK. Where appropriate they will prepare all the plans and secure any necessary approvals for the work to be carried out.

To ensure that the property is both aesthetically appealing and is cost efficiently refurbished we also work closely with professional interior designers. These firms have had extensive experience in the interior design field, especially with central London properties for the rental market.

We obtain quotes from reputable contractors and ensure the work is competitively priced. We use Federation of Master Builders contractors who work under the approved FMB form of contract. If there are structural works or other works requiring compliance with Building Regulations there is a Warranty available, otherwise there is a 6 months defects liability period. Once the quotes have been accepted by the client we oversee the work to ensure it is completed on time and on budget. Our UK Director, Mr. Dan Wainwright MRICS is a highly experienced Chartered Surveyor and directly oversees this function. Monthly progress reports are provided to the client where appropriate.

We provide the following on completion of the work;

  • Photographs to show all aspects of the property and the work that has been carried out
  • Detailed accounts to summarize the expenditure
  • If required, opinions from letting agents on rental values
  • A comprehensive lettings and management service to ensure ongoing ownership of the property is trouble-free
