At short notice our brief was to help this family relocating to Surrey look for both private and state schools, one in the junior sector, the other in the senior school sector as well as to looking for property to rent and purchase in and around the Guildford area. We were also tasked to arrange visits at international schools by way of comparison. This was one of the more challenging briefs as we had to identify availability in both junior and senior schools a in school years that did not have a natural break. Also we wanted to ensure that the junior schools would feed into the senior schools we had selected.
Having established availability at the differing schools we organised a full days’ viewings of the schools that were able to offer places at short notice. We also arranged initial property viewings so the clients could get a feel for both the rental and purchase markets within their budgets. Once the clients were agreed on the types of schools, they arranged for the children to take school tours. Fortunately the children liked the schools in the same village and therefore we could get underway and start the property search in earnest. Having pre-viewed and discarded at least 8 properties we arranged for the clients to see six good quality rental houses that matched the brief. The clients were happy with all 6 and it came down to proximity to the schools. We are pleased to advise that the clients agreed on a house . We advised on the the type of rental agreement that would be appropriate and negotiated the rental amount. The children were offered the schools places at their school of choice and the family moved in in good time ready to get the children ready for school.
This relocation to Surrey whilst challenging was extremely rewarding as the clients were happy with both the junior and senior schools as well as the village they moved into. If you are looking for a home search agent or property finder then please feel free to contact us on 07748 682818
