When Is It Good Time to Change Agencies?

2014-03-26T00:06:51.169-07:00

It is such an emotionally charged and stressful time, when you are selling your home, that it is hardly surprising that most agents get it in the neck if nothing happens for a while.Before you have agreed terms and signed the conditions, make absolutely sure you are not locked into an exclusive arrangement for months on end. Read the small print, because you may find that if you are unhappy with your agent, you are unable to move for a specified time.Most agents insist on six weeks after it has officially gone on the market and that's fair. Give them a chance, for heaven's sake! Advertising lead-times (the time between placing the ad and publication) mean that sometimes your home won't appear in the publication for three weeks.If, after that time, you get very few viewings or feel that you are not getting the right attention, it is time to move on. Shop around again and choose another suitable agent. You may already have a second choice, but ask the first agent why he feels your home is 'sticking'. It could be something you could so easily rectify or it could be overpriced.Saturation pointThe time to change agents is when they have marketed your home and arranged several viewings, but for some reason you haven't received any offers. Sometimes many weeks can go by without a viewing and the property will be seen to be 'sticking'. Unfortunately, your agent will have reached saturation point and will be far more interested in the newer properties he is currently dealing with. This is the time to put your home with a new agent who has a fresh approach.If your home is not selling, there might be something wrong with it! Sorry to be so blunt, but it's true. It may be overpriced or lacking the appropriate presentation. Take a long, hard look at your home or ask a friend for their honest opinion. It may not be only the agent you need to change.[...]



What Everybody Ought to Know About Moving House

2014-03-26T00:07:41.828-07:00

If you have taken the day off to pack and you don't get the keys until four o'clock in the afternoon, you will probably feel incredibly excited and quite emotional by the time you can pick up the keys and open the front door. This is a real moment to savour.But, prepare yourself. You might not have seen the property for six months and it might not look as nice as you remembered, eve if the owners have looked after it well. There are bound to be marks on the wall where furniture and pictures have been removed, which can look a bit ghostly and it is likely not to be totally clean.Despite all of this, don't be discouraged. An empty house rarely looks inviting, which is why estate agents like to shoot pictures of well-dressed homes and property developers kit out show homes. Remind yourself that this is a very special moment when you open the door to your first piece of Britain. This will never be repeated, and is really quite historic. You might even want a camera to hand to capture the time when you arrive in your home for the first time as its new owner.Buying your new home and taking possessions for it is a real milestone in your life, like getting on the bike for the first time and passing your driving test. This defining moment only happens once and you deserve a massive pat on the back for having got this far. Everything might not be perfect, but it is yours.Simple and yet vital points you should remember while moving:Communicate with your mortgage company, broker, solicitor and the chain ahead to make sure everything's going through. Get your solicitor to check the money's gone through for the property and that you will get the keys immediately after this happens. Confirm the time you can get into your home, and don't be shaken if there's a small delay.A small detail, but an important one: buy tea, cold drinks and biscuits (and maybe even sandwiches if it's a long process) for the removal men. Like armies, they march on their stomachs and a bit of friendly goodwill could go a long way. And, tip them at the end if they've been particularly helpful and supply some cold beer to christen the move and the new house. If you can afford it, why not escape all the hassle and hire a really good firm that will do absolutely everything for you. Then go on holiday for a week, and you can come back to a new home with all your possessions unpacked and neatly put away. If you're really brave, you can even engage decorators to spruce the place up for you. However, it might be wise to get someone to oversee the move and the work.[...]

There are not many tenants who live on good terms with their landlords. But why is that? Which is the source of all problems between lessees and lessors? The answer is simple – this is rental agreement. Let's discuss why...

Often the first problem that springs up between most tenants and landlords is a “walk-through”. Many lessees are not clear that there should be a regular inspection of the property before movers London unload their stuff in their new home. The “walk-through” is a compulsory requirement. In the end, landlords must be sure that their property is in good hands so bear in mind that at least once a month you'll be visited by your lessor.

Another common issue is who will pay communal bills. Some people think that this is the landlord's responsibility but others would say that tenants have to take care of that. Read your rental agreement carefully and have a word with your lessor before calling a removal company London and make it clear whose obligation is that.

Notice to move out could be a problem too. There are plenty of lessees who don't know when they should notify their lessors if they decide to change their home. Bear in mind that in most cases you have to tell your landlord at least a month in advance. Don't give him/her a reason to keep a part of your deposit!

Move out cleaning is another common issue. Don't forget that you must leave the property in the same condition as it was when you moved in.

The main reason for problems between tenants and landlords is fact that nobody read carefully the rental agreement. Make sure that you're familiar with it and everything will be fine.
