Location, Location, Location TV presenter Phil Spencer will this week launch a business that offers buyers a paid-for detailed property report about their intended purchase designed to give them more leverage when negotiating.
Advice and information within the reports will include a property’s title register, a valuation provided by Zoopla, boundary plans, property photos, details of recent local planning applications plus more standard fare such as local crime rates, amenities and schools.
The reports, which are paid for through website 192.com but created by MoveIQ, the name of Phil’s new advice business, cost approximately £15, alhtough noundary plans and title deeds costs extra.
“Aside from all this general advice, the Move iQ Property Report has been specifically designed to help people form a rounded opinion on the pros as well as the cons of a particular property they’re considering,” says Phil.
“My intention here has been to try and simplify the data and make it easier to understand as well as advise buyers and tenants how to use the information to their advantage.”
He says the service is designed to address one of the key problems buyers face in the market; that they are not represented professionally in the buying or renting process.
The new property reports are designed to address this imbalance by giving them more information to make their purchase or rental decision on.
“I want to arm anyone moving with the tools, knowledge and confidence to secure the right property and get the best deal possible,” says Phil.
“Equally knowing vital property specific and local area information about somewhere you’re set to call ‘home’ is too often overlooked.
Phil’s new website also offers advice for buyers and tenants on the process of purchasing and renting a property, as well as guides about moving home and being a first-time buyer.
