CLEARANCE DATE: 20th November 2011
PROPERTY LOCATION: Horn Lane, Acton, London W3
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full House And Garden Clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 5-Bedroom-House
We were instructed to clear a 5 bedroomed 1930’s semi detached property in a suburban area of north Acton. Because the property had been empty for over 6 months, the garden was overgrown, and needed restoring to its original state. The property was to be let once the clearance had been completed, and so we were instructed to fully clean the property and make it ready for viewing by estate agents.
We were required to clear all the contents, apart from the kitchen appliances. Most of the household effects had already been removed, and we were left with the residue, which included some large items of furniture and general household contents. There was plenty of parking space available, but the area was a residents only parking zone. Fortunately, the property owner was able to provide us with temporary permits for the day.
Disposal of Contents
In this case, some of the furniture and goods were in good condition, and we were able to offset their value against the cost of the clearance. Only a very small proportion of the contents were re-cycled.
Our dedicated gardening team took care of the garden and disposed of the waste and much of it was placed in compost bins, although some of it was taken to the local council’s recycling centre and placed with the green waste material
The client in this case was a firm of local solicitors, who were acting as executors, winding up the estate on behalf of the beneficiary, the son of the house owner. One of the partners inspected the property and was particularly impressed with the “excellent job” we had done with the garden.
