If You're Upsizing (buying)

Upsizing is an exciting life change. If you’re looking to upsize, we can help you find the ideal home for your budget. We’ve got the local know how to find the type of property you’re after or seek out the type of area in which you’d like to live. We’ll even let you know when properties come up for sale before they’re listed online.

When upsizing, there are a few things for you to consider:

  • What will your budget be? If you’re not sure, we can put you in touch with one of our trusted, local mortgage advisors. Once you know your budget, our expert team will help you match your budget and your expectations in terms of location, property size, parking, number of bedrooms and garden size.
  • Calculate extra purchasing and living costs: stamp duty, conveyancing, moving costs, home repairs, and general bills for amenities etc.
  • Work out your must haves from your maybes. Even with an unlimited budget it’s difficult to find your perfect home so it’s important to know what you’re willing to compromise on and what you’re not.
  • Research the local area both online and on foot and make sure you visit the local area at different times of day. If you still love it in rush hour when it’s raining then it’s the place for you! We can advise you on local amenities, transport options and your desired school’s catchment area.

If You're Downsizing (buying)

Once thought of almost exclusively for empty nesters, downsizing is becoming increasingly popular with people looking to live a low impact lifestyle, adventurers wanting to free up cash for a holiday home or with those who simply want lower bills, less cleaning to do and more disposable income to play with. Many who have taken this step find themselves relieved at being freed from the responsibility and cost of maintaining a larger property or enjoy living in a smaller property in a more desirable area.

If you’re new to the area we can show you properties and areas to suit your needs. We can also find examples of what similar properties have recently sold for so you can know what to expect.

Whatever your property needs, you’ll be the first to know of any new properties that are listed for sale – something you won’t get with an online agency.

With Church Robinson, our expert team will be on hand to walk you through every step of the process and to help you with all the rules and regulations you’ll need to adhere to ensuring you remain compliant.

 

Here are just some of the reasons local landlords choose us:

  1. We have vast experience in supporting people in a variety of circumstances in becoming a landlord, such as through a new career choice or inheritance.
  2. If lettings is a new area for you, our lettings specialists will guide you through every process of becoming a landlord and making sure your property is legally compliant.
  3. For every new property we take on, we carry out thorough rental appraisals and valuations to help landlords understand the levels of management required.
  4. We offer a wide range of services including Buy-to-Let services to Property Management and can help you with the processes for each of these.
  5. We always put the landlord's requirements first, advising on a number of queries and eliminating the daily hassles you may experience.
