If you had told me this time last year that I would soon be adding Buy to Let Estate Agent to my CV I would not have had a clue what you were talking about.
However, that’s exactly what we have become as a result of selling buy to let developments.
We have no plans to become a conventional estate agency where you can buy or sell your next home, however, estate agents is what we now are according to a law known as the Estate Agency Act 1979.
It’s all come about as a result of wanting to let you know about properties which could make ideal buy to let investments.
We didn’t want to charge fees to property investors but we often get the “heads up” on developments which make ideal buy to lets. Given that we have ‘filled our boots’ with deals personally (we’ve built our portfolio’s to a point we are comfortable) we decided to share the deals we would buy ourselves if were will still building our portfolio’s.
Clearly we can’t do this for nothing so we have started negotiating commissions with vendors (typically developers and insolvency practitioners) in return for referrals leading to sales.
To help ease the burden we have also teamed up with Kelvin Kingsley and we’ve created a new brand called “Your Property Concierge”.
To keep ourselves compliant we have registered the Trading Name “Your Property Concierge” with the ICO and also become a member of The Property Ombudsman redress scheme (membership number – D8072).
