We received a call from Ali and Katy in Dubai who were keen to use Chiltern Relocation’s services to secure them a home from a distance. The couple had recently relocated to Dubai with Ali’s job but they knew that they would be returning to Buckinghamshire in a few years’ time. They asked for us to find a family home within good school catchment and with a decent rental yield as they would rent out the house until they returned.
How we helped
We found an excellent property within walking distance of Amersham tube station and outstanding primary schools which ticked the boxes for Ali and Katy but which would also appeal to the rental market.
Problems we faced
The house wasn’t fully up to scratch for the rental market and required some maintenance work prior to accepting tenants. We organised local builders to carry out the work. We also helped to purchase and install white goods and put up curtains ready for the start of the rental term.
The house proved to be very popular rental option as Ali and Katy had three families all trying to secure the house.
As UK expats, we decided to use a relocation provider to help us with our UK property search. We provided Chiltern Relocation with a fairly exacting brief covering type of property, location and proximity to schools and transport. The service we have received from Sharon and her team has been excellent, and we have now purchased the property found for us. Having a relocation agent on the ground and with local expertise, like Chiltern Relocation, has made the process of finding a property that meets our criteria, so much easier, and I would not hesitate to use Chiltern Relocation again.
