When it comes to the real estate industry, the old adage of ‘it’s worth as much as one’s willing to pay’ does not ring true. Despite a dynamic market the real estate industry is built upon fair and realistic property valuations. Accredited surveyors provide accurate valuations of a property which provides the buyer with assurance when purchasing what is likely to be the biggest asset they’ll ever own.
While many retail lenders offer complimentary valuations, buyers of more unique and typically larger properties will sometimes feel more confident with a trusted surveyor who will carry out the survey of their assets privately.

A trust is a fiduciary relationship in which one party, known as a trustor, gives another party, the trustee, the right to hold title to property or assets for the benefit of a third party, the beneficiary. Trusts are established to provide legal protection for the trustor’s assets, to make sure those assets are distributed according to the wishes of the trustor, and to save time, reduce paperwork and, in some cases, avoid or reduce inheritance or estate taxes. Opes works with leading accountancy firms, law firms and trust companies to assist you in structuring your assets.

A dedicated search agent can be extremely beneficial for people looking to purchase a property in the UK, particularly those that are living overseas or are working with a limited timeframe for the property purchase. With their meticulous knowledge of locations as well as excellent relationships with estate agencies, search agents help prospective purchasers and investors by seeking the ideal prime spot for them along with negotiating the best possible purchase price. Quite often search agents know of a sale before anyone else!
At Opes we pride ourselves on our long-standing relationships, which we hold with some of the finest estate agents across London. We understand that different buyers have different needs, for example a first-time buyer typically will require some extra direction from a quality estate agent whereas an overseas buyer will prefer agent that can provide an accurate perspective on the property and the area. As a result, our network of estate agents (all of whom are accredited agents that adhere to the standards set by the NAEA) reflects the varying needs of our clients.
