There will also be an opportunity to discuss any special requirements or questions you may have.
Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours.
Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.
If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool.

Why Move to Richmond?
One of southwest London’s most beautiful areas, Richmond (or Richmond-upon-Thames) has for centuries been the haunt of the rich and famous.
King Henry VII was one of the first notable people to live in the area following the construction of Richmond Palace in the 16th century.
It is the only London borough that runs on both sides of the River Thames and is one of the safest places to reside in the capital cementing its attraction to families.
Leisure opportunities abound. This suburban location poses some interesting features, from historic properties to a 2500-acre park full of herds of deer to Thames-side pathways and boating, whilst the Green, popular for summer picnics, ensures Richmond holds a village like quality.
Not only does Richmond match any one of its affluent neighbours it is also extremely practical and offers its residents a quick commute of 15 minutes to the centre of the city. Additionally, Heathrow is a short hop if you are considering a trip away.
The district receives plenty of visitors and the Quadrant main street, narrow lanes and alleys feature all kinds of intriguing shops, a large variety of restaurants and pubs and there is a Farmer’s Market held every Saturday between 11am and 3pm.
For culture buffs, several options are literally around the corner including the Marianne North Gallery, Richmond Theatre, and the National Archive.
It is little wonder that plenty of well-known celebrities including as Sir David Attenborough, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have seen the beauty of residing in Richmond.
Richmond’s combination of wildlife, green space and history make it extremely easy on the eye. Combined with its geographically desirable location, it is more than a worthy contestant for one of the best places to live in London.
Richmond Schools & Education
You would not expect anything other than excellent schools for such an affluent area and that is exactly what Richmond provides.
Richmond upon Thames is the local education authority for the borough and provides an incredible amount of choice for parents.
The two local state primary schools’ families scramble for are The Vineyard School in Friars Stile Road and Marshgate in Queen’s Road, both rated “outstanding” by the Ofsted education watchdog.
There is plenty of great secondary schools including Christ’s Church of England Comprehensive Secondary School and Richmond Park Academy both “good” says Ofsted.
9 independents are available in the district including several prep schools and a well-regarded German school.
Richmond upon Thames College is a large college of further and higher education located on a single site in Twickenham. It provides education and training to 16- to 18-year-olds and adults from across the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and further afield.
Things to do in Richmond
There’s never a dull moment when you live in Richmond as it offers an incredible selection of things to do when you have time on your hands.
According to Tripadvisor the ten best things to do in Richmond are:
1. Richmond park
2. Kew Gardens
3. The Isabella Plantation
4. Marrianne North Gallery
5. The Great Pagoda
6. Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art
7. Ham House
8. Kew Palace

Sitting along some of the prettiest streets in London, Richmond’s property portfolio is awash with an eclectic mix of homes for sale.
Cottages, townhouses, Victorian villas, and new build apartments are all available in and around Richmond, but demand outstrips supply.
Owning a slice of this beautiful district does not come cheap and buyers pay top dollar so unfortunately rarely are there any bargains available.
Throughout the wider borough there are currently 1942 homes on the market with an average price set at £978,457, just shy of £1 million.
Richmond itself is more expensive and has 544 homes for sale at an average cost of £1,132,887.
One of the borough’s big, rambling Victorian villas would cost £5.5-£6 million in contrast, for a Richmond first-time buyer, the only option would be a modest studio at a cost of around £350,000.
Letting a home is also expensive with a single room rental hitting 600pcm.
The average rent is £1631pcm but for a larger 4-bedroom property you will need to budget from £3015pcm.
Popular areas (and the most expensive) include homes overlooking the Thames and those facing Richmond Green and Richmond Park and of course those sitting atop of Richmond Hill.
