Why use a buying agent?


While every client's needs are different, the reasons for choosing a search agent such as Hutton are often very similar. We give our clients many important advantages. We save our client’s time, reduce complexity, effort and cost, while helping our clients make decisions with the very best information and market intelligence to hand. Selling agents often favour a Hutton client, happy in the knowledge that they are committed buyers with professional representation. We pride ourselves on our patience, lateral thinking as well as offering a perspective and clarity to your decision making.

What type of property and sector of the market do you cover?


Hutton will help our clients find a pied-a-terre in South Kensington to country house estates and then everything in between. Whatever our client’s ideal property is, whether it is a stunning penthouse or a 10,000 sq. ft home overlooking Holland Park, an investment property or a family home on a private estate, small-holding or a perfect weekend retreat on the coast. We aim to find it. We work with budgets in excess of £750000.

When Huttons finds me a property, do they then guide me through the negotiations?


Yes. We aim to offer our clients a complete property purchasing service. Once a suitable property has been found we undertake the negotiations on your behalf. The service continues through to exchange of contracts, and upto and including the completion of the sale.

How do your fees work?


You pay a retaining fee when you sign up, then on exchange of contracts a success fee is then due, less the initial registration fee.

Why am I paying a registration fee?


Firstly the registration fee is fully refundable once a property has been purchased. However the need for a registration fee is two-fold. The fee demonstrates the commitment of our client to the search process, it helps us in the search and acquisition stages of the process. In an extremely competitive market place credibility is often crucial, enabling a deal to be done where a client was not necessarily the highest bidder. Secondly in the event that a client's circumstances change and they decide not to purchase the property after a long search period, then this fee goes towards covering some of our basic costs.

How do you gain access to off market properties?


Our contact network and excellent personal relationships built up over many years combined with the fact that we are a property search agent, often means we become made aware of properties prior to their general marketing release.

Will I end up competing against another of your clients looking for exactly the same thing?


With a larger agency this is a distinct possibility. However at Huttons we will not take on two clients with an identical brief. We limit the number of clients we take on and they often have very specific requirements avoiding any conflict of interest.
