How do I put in a note of interest?

To make a formal note of interest on a property, you need to speak to a residential property solicitor. Your solicitor will submit notes of interest on your behalf and will be informed if a closing date is set.

Our solicitors are unable to note interest for you on a property we are marketing but we can help you if you want to note interest on another agent’s property.  We can also help if you have a property to sell and require a valuation.

Please note, that submitting a note of interest does not guarantee there will be a closing date or that you’ll get an opportunity to offer.  The seller can accept an offer from any party as long as a closing date hasn’t been set.
