Services and expertise

Property Sourcing

We can find your ideal property. Whether you are looking for your own home, buy-to-let investment or a ‘pied a Terre,’ we will listen to your brief, understanding your exact requirements to find your perfect property. Noting your key ‘must-haves’, we will research the market thoroughly to deliver what you want and need and we don’t want you to compromise on your wish list. Having worked in this field for over 25 years, we have access to impressive industry contacts and agents who know we mean business.

Once we have exhausted every option, we will create a shortlist of properties for you to view then negotiate on your behalf. We’re happy to talk money – many people aren’t.

Throughout the entire process, you’ll get appropriate advice and an honest opinion on the property’s value. Once a price has been agreed and you want to proceed with the sale, we will oversee the legal and conveyancing procedure via one of our recommended partners – seeing your transaction through to completion and picking up your keys.

They say that moving to a new house is one of the most challenging life events, but we are here to make the process enjoyable and stress-free. Additionally, should your property need some work, we can also arrange refurbishment quotes, and if it’s a buy-to-let investment, we can also manage the rental on your behalf. We will take care of everything. It really is that simple.

Sales

Are you thinking of selling? We can do that too.

We can alleviate the stress of dealing with agents, providing a go-between service to buffer the process, giving you just one point of contact. We speak the industry language and can cut through the jargon for you.

DB Property Sourcing take care of everything – from arranging valuations, agreeing on fees and negotiating sales. We also liaise with solicitors on your behalf, keeping you in the loop at all times.

Choosing the right agent is vital. If we can’t sell your property ourselves, we will instruct a hand-picked, carefully selected agent and manage the entire process for you. The marketing of your property must attract the right buyer and ultimately fetch the best price. We have robust relationships with both UK and international agents that we trust to work hand in hand with us, delivering satisfactory outcomes for everyone.

Rentals

Have you got a property to let? Renting your property can sometimes bring the occasional hurdle, but managed properly, it can be a seamless process. You must feel confident that your property is in safe hands, but you also need to attract the right tenant.

DB Property Sourcing can arrange everything. We can negotiate the rental and handle all the legalities and admin as well as gathering references on your potential renter. Reliable rental income is of paramount importance but equally, so is the quality of the tenant(s) occupying your property.

Again, if we can’t find a suitable tenant in-house, we have all the right contacts in place with trusted, reputable agents who are happy to work in partnership with us. You can also choose how much or how little involvement you want to have as a private landlord.

Are you looking to rent for yourself? No problem. Look at our ‘property sourcing’ section for information on how we can find you the best place to live.

Property Management

Property Management is both complex and time-consuming. We often manage clients’ property investments - many of which have been purchased through us.

We are privileged to be trusted with these assets should the client have to work or relocate overseas. We alleviate any worry or stress by handling rentals, any laborious admin or paperwork and work with tax and legal professionals leaving you free to get on with your business. For peace of mind we are a Member of the Property Redress Scheme (PRS) and all client money is protected via Client Money Protect (CMP).

DB Property Sourcing is always available and, this is what our clients seem to value most. In the UK, and internationally, we can manage everything from deposits, rent collection, maintenance and safety requirements. We also place great significance on good relationships with your tenant(s) – just as important as looking after the landlord’s investment.

We can create bespoke packages to suit your individual needs. Simply let the experts look after your property affairs. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the rental income.

Maintenance & Refurbishments

Whether DB Property Sourcing is managing your property or not, we can help with all kinds of maintenance or refurbishment work, including all statutory certification.

It has taken years to find reliable and competent contractors that we trust. We’re confident we now have strong relationships with several local and nationwide companies that are diligent and professional, completing works at reasonable costs.

Landlords must ensure compliance with legal requirements in the rental sector. These include utilities such as gas and electrics, EPCs and inventories to protect the deposit. Therefore, the right contractors need to be instructed to obtain the appropriate certification.

We can provide reputable contractors for everything – from the small, “odd job” to a complete house build or refurbishment. DB property Sourcing can guide you through the planning and architect procedures to getting the keys on completion. Every contractor we use hold the relevant Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurances and are familiar with the exceptional standards we aim to deliver.

When managing your property, we hold a small float of your funds in a fully segregated protected client account so that we can instruct emergency works in your absence or if we can't reach you. This keeps everything running smoothly and without delays.

We can also arrange for any work or maintenance to be carried out on your property before or after a tenancy.

Relocations & Removals

To help you move, DB Property Sourcing will put the right logistics in place, whether you’re relocating locally, elsewhere in the UK, or overseas.

We have carefully selected removal partners that deliver reliability and efficiency. We have helped move hundreds of high profile clients and HNW individuals so we totally understand the need for professional and discreet service.

Financial Planning

We work in partnership with another carefully chosen, fully regulated company who provide mortgage and protection advice to our clients.

DB Property Sourcing has worked with Flagstone for many years and we have referred some high-profile clients to them. Discretion and professionalism are a must. I can refer you to the specialist who brokers our deals.

Flagstone is one of the largest independent mortgage providers in the UK and we’re fortunate to benefit from exclusive rates which aren’t available to the general public. Flagstone’s team have vast experience in the mortgage market and will guide you through the whole process of buying or re-mortgaging. They also offer a range of additional financial services products to give you peace of mind.

Flagstone charge a fee for arranging your mortgage, the exact fee will depend on your individual circumstances but it will be in the region of £299, payable upon application.

Lawyers

DB Property Sourcing will only recommend experienced qualified property law specialists. Communication and technology are vital in today’s conveyancing and for any property-related legal issues. It’s essential to be able to speak directly with your lawyer and not just to a telephone call centre. We have chosen to work with modern, innovative legal firms that we believe are the right fit for our clients.

Our chosen partners will offer this direct service, advising on buying, selling, refinancing, lease issues, wills, probates and lasting powers of attorney.

All the law firms we work with are fully regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and carry appropriate levels of Professional Indemnity (PI). Let us make the introduction for you.

International Property

Like our Property Sourcing service, we can also help you buy or rent a property overseas. Working with one of our trusted international partners, we will find your dream home abroad.

We can travel with you to view the property and if you wish to go ahead, we can assist in negotiating the price on your behalf.

Overseas property transaction law differs from the UK system, but we will make sure you’re in safe hands with the right team of professionals at your disposal.
