Chain reaction: take the stress out of buying and selling

Posted on Thursday, July 12, 2018

I was recently asked what was the biggest property chain I’ve found myself working in?

Over the years we have dealt with some large chains with upto 10 properties involved.

That’s 10 buyers, more if they are couples, potentially 10 surveyors, upto 10 solicitors and countless chances for the deals to fall flat.

How do we get these sales through? Well, a good estate agent will have all the names and contact details of everyone involved in the chain.

Then it’s all about keeping on top of things, regularly chasing solicitors or surveyors, speaking with mortgage companies and liaising with clients. Daily if needs be.

At Sansome & George we a have panels of surveyors, solicitors and removal companies we recommend. Our enhanced sales progression service was created in order to speed up the process and ensure that our clients are regularly updated with the progress and any issues in the transaction are managed correctly.

We do everything we can to make a chain run as stress free as possible. It’s usually a lot of hard work but that’s just one of the reasons why we’re regarded so highly by clients we’ve worked for and with.

I was pleasantly surprised by the courtesy, responsiveness, attention to detail and willingness to help on the part of the sales staff (in particular Nick and Brendan) from the outset. They understand what "going the extra mile" actually means, and this made the transaction so much easier than I had anticipated, as I was necessarily dealing...
