Heckstall-Smith Property Search, Acquisition & Management
We offer a complete buying service covering the property search for the home you require. You may be seeking a country estate, a town house, an equestrian property, a weekend retreat or a holiday home, overseas. You may wish to invest in a Buy-To-Let property or your own, particular haven. We will listen to your needs, understand your criteria, liaise with estate agents regarding your individual requirements; present you with selected properties; accompany you to viewings; negotiate the purchase and manage the process to its conclusion by working with solicitors, surveyors and the selling agent. We can also assist in arranging the move, if you so wish.
Once the sale is complete, we offer a supplementary service. We can Project Manage and oversee any building works or improvements that may be required; for example, introducing you to architects, interior designers, landscape garden designers and specialist building contractors. We have a database of organisations and individuals to service this element of the operation and can pinpoint suitable companies and services to fulfil your wishes.
We also offer a full Property Management service both here in South Devon and the Cote d' Azur. This service is designed to cater for houses, villas and small estates of up to 10 hectares or 25 acres in size. With 20 years experience we are fully versed in the care of new and period property and all that is required to maintain the integrity of such buildings. This makes us knowledgeable in the management of staff, contractors, preparing and managing maintenance programmes, working to budget, client reporting, managing tenants and all facets of villa holiday rentals.
As owners’ requirements vary, we are used to tailoring the service we offer to suit the needs of our clients’ circumstances, the property and its location.
