Our Selling Process guide

Fisks London follow the RICS ‘Blue Book’ standards when appraising and valuing property.

We will share our methodology with you so you can see how we have arrived at our valuation. 

We will explain the merits of our various marketing strategies, including but not limited to Open Days, Block Viewings and the benefits of choosing between a Guide Price, Price on Application or a Fixed Marketing Price.

Our suggested strategy will generate competition among buyers, enabling us to convert enquiry into block viewings, this approach often leads to multiple bids for the property maximising the final selling price.

We recommend that the property is professionally cleaned paying attention to the kitchens and bathrooms, consider replacing sealants where necessary. If possible please tidy away any extraneous ornaments. Please also keep the lawn and edge trimmed and the garden free of refuse.

Fisks London ensures that all viewings are accompanied by one of our trained and qualified consultants. Our extended opening hours mean that we carry out viewings when other agents are closed, resulting in more viewings with more buyers for your property.

We provide regular feed back to our clients and offer regular review meetings.

On receipt of an offer we will notify you in writing and verbally. We will verify the buyer’s financial position to check that they are able to proceed.

When an offer has been agreed we will prepare a memorandum of sales, and send this to all parties. 

There are no legal obligations on either party until contracts have been exchanged.

Once the sale has been agreed we will manage the conveyance process communicating with third parties on your behalf and keep you informed throughout. Please see our pop Guide to The Conveyance Process for more information.

Estate Agent in Limehouse

Limehouse is an affluent and desirable area of London, close to the River Thames and within walking distance of the main Canary Wharf and Docklands developments. Acting as a home to successful city professionals, it is a beautiful part of town, offering attractive developments, a quay area for pleasure craft and plenty of amenities. It remains one of the most beautiful residential areas of London – and slightly less expensive than places like Wapping.

Development

Over the past century, Limehouse has seen extensive development. Modern buildings now dominate the area, providing premium accommodation for workers looking for easy commutes to Canary Wharf and the city via the Docklands Light Rail and London Underground. However, the area does retain some of its original Victorian charm, with multiple surviving terraces from the period, some of which are available to rent.

Shopping And Entertainment

While shopping and entertainment options are still developing in Limehouse, residents usually need only go next door to Wapping for its pubs and amenities. Limehouse is also home to some famous landmarks, including Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant, The Narrow, and The Grapes – a public house owned by Sir Ian McKellan. If you live close to the harbour area, you may also be able to keep a yacht moored there, depending on availability.

Outdoor Spaces And Recreation

Limehouse isn’t famed for its vast open spaces, being so close to the Thames. However, there are areas where you can take walks and enjoy outdoor pursuits. There is a footpath that runs adjacent to the Thames that provides fresh air and views of the Canary Wharf development. There is also Ropemakers Field – an attractive park located close to the Grapes, as well as a pedestrian and cycle path that runs alongside the various canals that feed into the harbour.

Residents And Architecture

The area is highly affluent and dersible, attracting city professionals. Many live in high-rise apartments which overlook the Thames, although there are other low-lying options available for those on more of a budget. Architects have given much consideration to Limehouse, creating some attractive building designs that stand out from regular developments. Many complexes are purpose-built that provide a unique experience for those who decide to live in them. Some offer balconies where a view is available.

Transport

The closest transport link is Limehouse station. This interchange offers both DRL links and regular trains. On the Docklands Light Rail, trains run from Limehouse to Tower Gateway, Bank, Woolwich Arsenal, Lewisham, and Poplar. National services run into London Fenchurch Street and out into Shoeburyness on the Essex coast. London Fenchurchstreet offers national rail connections.

Schools

Limehouse is home to several primary schools, secondary schools and colleges, all within throwing distance of the residential developments. It also offers some sixth form schools for students over the age of 16 who would like to transfer to a different educational establishment.

The quality of schools in Limehouse is one of the reasons for the area’s popularity. Parents are willing to pay a premium to live in the catchment area of top institutions.

The best schools in the Limehouse area according to reports and OFSTED inspection ratings are:

  • Sir William Burrough Primary School – an Academy rated as outstanding for children aged 3 to 11
  • Mayflower Primary School – rated outstanding
  • Boutcher Church of England Primary School – rated outstanding for children aged 5 to 11
  • Riverside Primary School – rated outstanding for children aged 3 to 11
  • St Peter’s London Docks CofE Primary School – rated outstanding for children aged 3 to 11
  • Bigland Green Primary School – rated outstanding for children aged 3 to 11

Please note that some schools in Limehouse have small catchment areas. To qualify, you may need to choose accommodation both in the area and physically close to the school you’d like your child to go to. The Sir William Burrough Primary School – one of the most famous in the area – has a small catchment area because of its popularity.

Taxes And Rates

The local council for Limehouse is Tower Hamlets – a large authority that covers a vast swathe of east London between Bow, the Canary Wharf development and Wapping.

The council tax rate you’ll pay will depend on the assigned banding for your property. Currently, the rates for each band are as follows:

  • Band A: £928
  • Band B: £1,083
  • Band C: £1,238
  • Band D: £1,392
  • Band E: £1,702
  • Band F: £2, 011
  • Band G: £2,321
  • Band H: £2,785

Please note that these rates are purely for guidance. The rates for Limehouse are considerably lower for many bands than the national average. However, that may change in the future depending on decisions made by the local council.

You may not have to pay the full amount of council tax if you meet certain criteria. For instance, Tower Hamlets runs a council tax reduction scheme for disabled residents. It also offers a single-occupier discount of 25 percent if you live in the property by yourself. You can also apply for council tax benefit and second adult rebates if you qualify. Always discuss any changes with your council tax payments with the relevant Tower Hamlets authorities first.

Local Public Services

Tower Hamlets is responsible for all standard local council services. It provides social services, planning, education and housing services, plus waste disposal and removal.
