As many of our clients have never dealt with probate or used a house clearance company before, we found that it was helpful to outline a previous house clearance in Finsbury Park we carried out in November. This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing. If you have any probate requirements or looking to clear a property in Finsbury Park or surrounding areas then for free advice without obligation, you can call our London Office on 0208 640 0044.
We also carry out property valuation for probate and house contents valuation for probate purposes in the Finsbury Park area.
CLEARANCE DATE: 18th October 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Fonthill Rd Finsbury Park London N4
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full House Clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 6 bedroom 3 storey terraced house plus garden
The requirements were to fully clear a 6 bedroom 3 storey terraced house in Fonthill Rd Finsbury Park London N4. The property had been let to students, but the landlord planned to completely renovate the property and sell it to a property developer. We were requested to remove all furniture, and also the washing machine and drier, and also to clear large amounts of rubbish from the garden, and cut it back and restore it.
Fonthill Road has parking restrictions during the week, but is unrestricted at weekends. Traffic is also a major problem in the area, so we decided to carry out the clearance on a Sunday. We arrived on site at 6 a.m., found parking easily, and immediately started work. Because the property is terraced, the only way to access the garden is through the front door, so we put down protective dust sheets to prevent damage to the hallway carpet and front entrance. We then started removing beds, desks, chests of drawers, curtains, carpets, rugs, an electric stove, a sofa, armchairs, and other furnishings. We then cleaned the property thoroughly and isolated the utilities, finally clearing the rubbish from the garden before handing the keys back to the client at 5.30 p.m.
Disposal of Contents
The furniture had evidently been purchased second hand and was of variable quality, but most of it was in very good condition, and we were able to re-sell some of it through our retail division, and donate a substantial part to local charities. Only the carpets were too worn to be re-used and these were sent to our recycling centre. Only a very small proportion of the house contents were sent to landfill.
The client said, “Great job. I can get the house on the market tomorrow. If I need a clearance again, i will certainly call you”
