Relocating from Rome to Rotherhithe
Simone and Monica’s brief was a simple one, find us a house/apartment in Rotherhithe close to links to Canary Wharf and a nursery/school for their daughter, or was it? They, like Kay (another client with two dogs and two cats), wanted to bring their Cats with them from Italy and the landlords, particularly in the apartment blocks, were definitely not keen on these additions. They were also extremely busy as not only were they working to a tight relocation deadline they were also getting married the week-end before their proposed moving date.
Following some intensive research, pre-viewings and constant sending of photographs and videos of prospective new homes and discussions with Simone regarding our findings we found the ideal home. Simone had to view it himself on same day we had viewed it and we met up the next day and agreed the terms.
The other part of the search, that is, the school search, was necessarily tied in with the home search as proximity to the school of choice is of prime importance. We had established that the pre-school had a space which we managed to secure and the application is in for the schools of their choice which are within walking distance from their new home.
We went up to visit them to take them on an orientation tour of the surrounding areas and gave them their orientation pack with all the information they would need to settle in. They love their new home and have nearly finished unpacking and looking forward to their daughter joining them.
