We moved to overseas and after renting our property for a number of years and having had a few bad tenants / experiences we really wanted to sell. Even though Alan Harvey were also managing our property (and tenants) we explained to them that what we really wanted to do was sell and move on.
Our property had some challenges, the most troublesome being a now 72 year diminishing lease, that turned a lot of potential buyers off. We had managed to contact the freeholder, though he wasn\'t very easy to deal with, so we decided to try and sell at a price to allow for a lease extension with or after the sale.
We had a couple of potential sales fall through, mainly due to the state of the UK market, and some property investors trying it on... during this whole process the sales team, at Alan Harvey BOW, remained extremely positive and explained that they are still showing the property and kept us informed of the progress.
We eventually had another offer which Mark managed to secure us a price that we would except. It was by no means a straight forward sale, due to the relatively low lease. However with many a late night phone call with Mark, Daniel and our solicitor (we are +10hr GMT), we thought the sale was going to fall through again, they managed to negotiate our way through this and we settled a couple of weeks ago.
The professionalism and dedication shown by the Bow sales team is second to none and we\'d highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Mark and Daniel (and initially Paul Flood) for your great efforts and in helping us so much in the sale of our property!
