With the introduction of mandatory licensing for some flats, buyers are warned to check certain details before proceeding with the purchase of a flat which may come under Exeter City Council’s licensing scheme. In brief, if flats within converted buildings or over shops were not converted after 1991, they are likely to come under the new legislation. With a license costing at least £850 and with the likelihood that works may need doing to the property, owners of affected properties could find themselves with unexpected costs if buying an affected property.

At Southgate Estates we also offer guidance documents designed to help buyers understand the process of buying non-standard houses and houses of multiple occupancy (HMO’s) within Exeter.
Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
At Southgate Estates, we promise to always give honest and well researched advice. We spend time with our clients explaining how we have arrived at our valuation and make genuine recommendations on how to best market every home.
We offer free valuations and never use hard sales techniques to push clients into signing up on the day.
