As we move through 2022 it will become mandatory for more information to be published on written property descriptions. The first change comes in May when it is mandatory to publish the price (seriously?!), tenure information and the council tax banding. As you would expect we at Aldreds already do this! We will keep you updated through 2022 as more updates become available.
As well as following Aldreds on Facebook you can connect with us on Twitter @aldredsproperty or on Instagram @aldredsestateagents
Happy semi...semi retirement to Aldreds legend Steve Nuttall (note trademark mask). Steve has been with us 40 years and ran our Great Yarmouth sales operation from the 1990s till 2014 when he had his first attempt at retirement. He returned soon after to be our boardman and general trouble shooter still working full time but able to take life a little easier. From Friday he will be just doing our boards and hopes to work just two or three days a week (we shall see). Enjoy the scrumpy Steve and thanks for all you do!
Stuart Andrew has been announced as a new housing minister this afternoon. He is the MP for Pudsey and has been so since 2010.
Fall throughs and cancelled sales are one of the worst things that we as estate agents have to deal with. They cause stress and anxiety to our customers and can shatter people dreams. At Aldreds we do everything we can to make sure your sale runs as smoothly as possible. We only recommend solicitors and conveyancers in this area who know the local market, types of properties and their customers. We also do strong due diligence on all sales before we go ahead. All buyers must provide ID and proof of cash or an agreement in principle for their mortgage before we go ahead with any sale. We also carry out vigorous checks in to the ongoing sales in the chain at offer stage. As the sale moves forward we monitor the process and talk to other estate agents and solicitors in the chain to make sure things are progressing well. Any issues we see developing can be managed swiftly. Communication is the key to getting a sale completed successfully. On the day you move we endeavour to help ease the stress as much as possible. Where possible we get keys in to our offices the night before so they are ready to hand over on completion the next day. We cannot release those keys until we get the call to say the sale has completed! Please don’t shoot the messenger!
