London house clearance specialists Jeffrey Avery& Associates were instructed to carry out a house clearance in Highgate in the middle of February this year by a client who after a long court battle had just regained possession of her seven bedroom Highgate property after the eviction of around thirty eastern European squatters. It has become a growing problem for property owners in these areas and it seems that there is very little one can do to stop the entry of illegal occupants, as they break in, deny breaking and entering, claim squatters rights, then become protected by English law.
Surely its time for the law to change and stop people just entering our private property, our homes that our family and parents have worked so hard for to effectively have them stolen by undesirable groups of squatters who when eventually are evicted leaving the place damaged, vandalised and dirty. This was exactly how I can describe the condition of our clients property when we entered and of course the lady was heartbroken.
We walked around the property and I helped her to come to terms with the situation. It was Wednesday and she was so relieved when I told her that we could have the house completely cleared and cleaned by the weekend. We agreed a price for the work and as promised started work early on the Thursday, clearing the entire property room by room with our cleaners following behind sanitising each room as we cleared it, paying particular attention to the bathrooms and kitchens.
We called our client to meet us at the property at 7pm on the Friday evening. It was very gratifying to see the relief on the ladies face and she could not thank the team enough. The property is now sold and being refurbished. All material removed from the property was transported away in our own closed in vehicles, recycled where possible and the remainder sent to an appropriate waste handling facility. The job was by no means a typical London house clearance and we are generally able to complete most house clearances in a day If you live in the city and need London house clearance services or probate valuation specialists, don’t hesitate to contact us on 0800 567 7769 for advice and a free quotation.
