Scheduling a property viewing with us is simple. Just give us a call, send an email, or visit our office to talk to our team in person. Our well-trained staff are on hand to arrange a viewing at a time that’s convenient for you. If necessary, we can even arrange transportation to the appointment.

We cover Essex and London, and our professional survey department extends our coverage even further.

For viewings, start by listing the questions that matter to you, however simple they might seem. This could include enquiries about the property’s condition, utility costs, maintenance history, and more. With permission, take photos of areas you’d like to remember later. This can be particularly helpful if you’re viewing several properties. Remember, you can revisit the property and bring a friend or family member for a second opinion.

For valuations, we recommend gathering all the relevant documents related to your property, such as deeds, surveys, and building permits. These documents provide valuable information to the valuer. Our professional estate agents will guide you through the process, and if you have any concerns, we’re happy to sit down and discuss them with you.

Our expertise covers a range of services, including:

  • Sales
  • Lettings
  • Auctions
  • Property Management
  • Survey & Professional Work
  • Commercial Property Agency

“No onward chain” indicates that the property is either being sold empty or the sellers are willing to vacate to facilitate a smooth sale. Buyers can relax in the knowledge that they won’t have to wait for the seller to find another home.

When a sale is agreed between the seller and buyer, solicitors handle the legal work. This involves drawing up a contract to confirm all legal rights, subject to review.

Absolutely! There are significant advantages to selling at auction with Hair & Son. The process is swift, taking about six weeks, and there’s no chain; once the hammer falls, your property is sold.

Auction broadens your market, attracting buyers looking to make it their home, as well as investors, developers, and property dealers. In many cases, an auction isn’t just a last resort but the best way to sell your property.
