Moving to the UK

Whether you’re an expat returning to Britain, or moving here for the first time, we understand that you won’t want to spend precious days flying back and forth to view properties which simply don’t tick all your boxes.   Moving home is stressful enough for most people but if you are living abroad the whole prospect can be even more daunting – We are here to alleviate some of the strain and hopefully save you some flying time too!

Our understanding and knowledgeable property finders have years of experience in their local property markets, with extensive networks of contacts, enabling them to source the very best properties on and off the market for the best possible prices.

We can also introduce you to our network of specialist mortgage, banking and legal advisers who are experienced in the needs of overseas clients who may not have UK credit history.   Or, if you prefer to rent a property when you first arrive, we can help with that too.

Before we start your property search we will work with you to understand your likes, preferences and requirements allowing us to preselect only appropriate homes for us to view on your behalf.   Once we’ve seen a property we feel may be suitable we will send a report with photographs and video so that you can decide whether it’s worth making the journey.   Remember, our photos and videos also show the parts the estate agents leave out!   You’ll be able to travel secure in the knowledge that your trip won’t be wasted, and that you could be about to view your dream home.

Once you’ve chosen your perfect property we will advise on the next steps and co-ordinate input from other professionals, such as surveyors and solicitors, to ensure you’re getting the best possible advice right up until the moment you collect your keys.

Let us take care of you and your needs, and make moving to another country a relaxed and stress-free experience – to help you with your move to the UK, we have devised a the ultimate checklist to ensure that you have everything taken care of.

Case Studies

Mr & Mrs F had been living and running a business in New York for several years but had decided to return to the UK. Their intention was to buy a new home but they wanted to look for a good quality rental option while they carried out their search. Their search area was quite flexible within a broad corridor from Windermere/Kendal in Cumbria to Harrogate in North Yorkshire.
