APF provides a flexible approach depending on a client’s personal needs and choice and offer two basic types of service:

1. Full Service
In this category APF has developed two products

1.1. Super Search – this service provides a comprehensive search of large and expensive properties requiring considerable time and work to evaluate. There are two stages:
1. Stage – Property Finding
2. Stage – Handling the Sale

A Registration Fee to be agreed is deductible from the full fee on completion which is 1.25 percent of the price.

1.2. Standard Search - a comprehensive search of property in two stages:

1. Stage – Property Finding
2. Stage – Handling the Sale

A Registration Fee of £500 is payable but deductible against the full fee of 1.25 per cent of the completion price.

Property Finding (the process):

APF selects all the appropriate properties using a client’s criteria from various sources: estate agencies and/or developers and others offering property for sale or rent. A shortlist of properties is provided to the client with information about properties, localities, local services, transport, schools and recreational facilities.

APF will agree a shortlist of up to five properties with the client which will be reported on following an on-site visit.

APF will then present to a client a report in great detail covering all the property and local issues of importance to a client describing the properties and locations in greater detail and providing photographs with the permission of a vendor.

Handling the Sale (the process):

If the client decides to buy a property APF can, by agreement, negotiate a final price and assist the client to buy the property by coordinating with other professionals involved in the purchasing process, such as surveyors and valuers, solicitors, brokers and mortgage providers. Clients are regularly updated on progress.

2. Limited Service:
