Properties Wanted – Off-Market Sales & Lettings

As part of Townsend Chartered Surveyors personalised and high quality service we offer our clients a “discrete” sale process.

Some vendors approach us looking for a private sale where their property is not placed on the open market for a variety of reasons. We are able to offer a ‘discrete’ sale, where we prepare brief particulars and only send them to appropriate hand-picked people from our purchasers’ register and ‘wanted’ list.

Please contact us in full confidence to discuss your situation and particular marketing needs; or to arrange for us to come out and give you a free marketing valuation and/or report without obligation.
