We’re excited to announce that we’ve just launched a brand new service for our customers! We’ve created Chamberlains Concierge (powered by Justmovein) which aims to help customers moving home. Towards the end of a conveyancing process, you have enough to do with sorting and packing. The last thing you want to be thinking about is sorting out the council tax, phone line, or power for your property or the one you are moving too. To help, we created Chamberlains Concierge – a free service for our customers. Chamberlains Concierge allocates you a dedicated move manager who will look after you and take care of things like switching your council tax, phone lines, tv package, gas, water and electric.
Save yourself time and stress, avoid ages on hold to lots of companies and let us help. There is no cost to our customers for this service, it is completely free!
Soundgood? Fill in the short form and we’ll take care of the rest.
Moving home, might see quite a long way off for some, especially as we’re at home in a lockdown that just seems to keep going. Despite the lockdown, there are things you can do to get yourself prepared and armed so that you are ready to go, as soon as the lockdown eases.
We always encouraging appointing a solicitor to act for you as soon as possible when you are buying or selling – It can literally take weeks of the process by getting sorted in advance! It means that a solicitor can get a file open for you, deal with your ID and send you initial forms to complete so that they are ready to start the process the day you agree a sale or purchase.
If you would like to discuss getting ahead and dealing with some of the paperwork while you are at home, before hectic lives resume then just let us know, we’ll get you a quote on a no sale no fee basis. just visit: chamberlains.co/conveyancing to get started. There is nothing to lose and you could potentially save weeks on the time it takes to move.
If you’d prefer to discuss with us further, please do let us know.
It’s been over five weeks since the lockdown began and so we wanted to get in touch to let you know about what we’ve been doing behind the scenes.
As you will already be aware, we have furloughed the majority of staff which has enabled us to survive an extended lockdown and protect the jobs of our valued team. I’m happy to report that all staff and their families are safe and well too. We are all still keeping in touch regularly over a virtual coffee, the weekly zoom team quiz is great fun and everybody at Chamberlains is keen to return to work and the offices as soon as possible, so that we can pick up from where we left off and get homes sold and let as quickly as possible.
From day one of the lockdown we were able to route all of our phone lines so that calls can be answered as normal and added in a voicemail system which email’s us messages so that you can be sure we don’t miss any enquiries. We have also updated our website to give visitors the latest updates from Government when it comes to moving. Just go to our homepage to take a look.
We’ve also added functionality to our website to allow prospective customers to book virtual valuations over video call which has proved a success. We’ve been able to give homeowners advice on what DIY jobs are worth doing during lockdown and which aren’t, to ensure they can achieve the very best price and we’ve also added a few videos we have received from our vendors – these allow prospective buyers have a look around without actually visiting the property. If you would like to do a video too then just let us know and we’ll talk you through it.
With regards to the market, well, it is quiet- However we are still getting steady number of buyers registering with us, the majority of them are currently living in more built up areas, and especially London. People from those areas, certainly seem to be bringing their plans forward, and who can blame them! We believe that this level of demand will continue and will spike once the lockdown restrictions are lifted.
Whilst the lockdown is stopping us show properties, we are encouraged by the fact there is a great deal of demand. We also have to remember that we live in a beautiful part of the country which many people aspire to move to.
As always, if you have any queries or would like to discuss your property then please do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
It’s perfectly understandable to be worried about your finances at a time like this. Lenders are offering payment holidays across mortgage, loan and credit card products but it is a good time to get some advice. We’re proud to recommend Cooper Associates. They offer an award winning fee free service and are available to chat to you over the phone or on a video call to go through your options. Simply go to www.chamberlains.co/mortgage-advice and fill in the short form and an advisor will be in touch.
The team at Chamberlains, provided professional, courteous and friendly service from beginning to end. We were kept informed at every stage with telephone and email updates. We had the property marketed by two other agents prior to instructing Chamberlains the level of service received from the other agents doesn’t come anywhere near the standard and the commitment given by Chamberlains. They will be our first choice next time we sell.
We can still help you with understanding the value of your home.
We are following government guidance to protect our team and customers and to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
We are still working hard behind the scenes from the safety of our homes and are here to answer any property queries. Whilst keeping safe at home those DIY project ideas can start to happen, however, if you are thinking of moving when life returns to normal, it is worth asking our advice on what will add value, help with saleability, and what wont.
To take advantage of free advice from experienced local valuers simply book a valuation on our website or by calling 01626 365055. On your chosen day and time, we’ll call you by your chosen app (FaceTime, WhatsApp, HouseParty, Zoom, Skype etc). We’ll then ask you to give us a tour around your home so that we can discuss it with you.
Lots of people worry about how tidy their home is before a valuation, but please don’t worry – homes are for living in and we can certainly see past kids toys, pets etc!
Thinking of selling or letting out a property? Fill in your details and one of our friendly team will contact you to confirm your booking. It’s free, and there is no obligation – We’ll talk to you about the current market, and how you can maximise the value of your property.
