CLEARANCE DATE: 5th November 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Palace Street, Westminster, London, SW1
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full flat clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 3-bedroom flat
This clearance involved a flat on the second floor of a building on Palace Street in Westminster. The owner of the flat had inherited it from her mother, and had hired a firm of solicitors to arrange the clearance and sale. We had actually worked with this firm of solicitors on a previous clearance and they had been impressed with our work so had decided to call us again. They also asked us to clean the flat following the clearance.
After we had parked the vans outside the building we made sure that we protected the front doorway and the area just outside in the communal area so that we did not cause any damage. One of the requirements was that we worked as carefully and quietly as possible within reason because the building was inhabited by many other people, but this was fine because we are always especially careful in buildings that contain other flats. The owner had clearly removed a number of the things from inside the flat, but there were still lots of goods and items of furniture to remove. We worked through the entire flat, and did not come across any particular difficulties, so we managed to complete the clearance fairly early. We then cleaned the entire flat to leave it sparkling clean and ready to be placed on the market.
Disposal of Contents
There was some very expensive-looking furniture in the flat that we managed to sell, but other than that we donated the reusable items to two charities and sent the rest of the goods to be recycled. As always, we removed everything from the property in closed unmarked vans for the privacy of the owner.
The solicitor in charge of the clearance checked over the property following the clearance and confirmed that we had done another top job. He also said he looked forward to working with us again on future clearances.
