Buying in Richmond
An affluent residential area of South West London bordering Surrey, the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames has a good choice of homes, plenty of green space and some of the most beautiful views of the Thames. As one local estate agents puts is: “For people moving out of more central areas, it is often a halfway house before making the move to the country. However, once here a lot of families end up staying and never make that final move. Richmond is that perfect blend of parks, river, history and architecture.”
Richmond Hill is a prime residential location, with apartments and houses at the top overlooking the Arcadian Thames commanding a premium. New residential developments include the former Star & Garter Home for disabled ex-service personnel and the Georgian Ancaster House nearby.
Richmond has an overall average property price of £1,090,108 (Rightmove) and is recording strong growth. Last year, prices were up by 19% on the previous year and 21% up on 2015. Most transactions last year involved apartments.

A Schedule of Condition will ensure that the tenant’s repairing obligations under a commercial lease are clearly laid down in reference to the condition of the premises at the start of the lease. In this way, the interests of both parties are protected are the potential for conflict arising from claims for damages are greatly reduced.
Using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, a drone survey is a faster, safer and more cost-efficient method to carry out building surveys from the air. For roof inspections, tower, bridge or large building surveys, aerial building surveys are fast becoming the sensible choice for surveyors, engineers and building managers.
