Our Services

We offer a range of services;

RESIDENTIAL

Residential Sales

We have been at the forefront of property in Brighton, Hove and its environs since 1897. During this time we have acquired a wealth of experience in an ever-evolving market place.

Our experienced team offers a bespoke tailored service to meet each individual client’s needs.

We appreciate that your home is probably your most valuable asset. We will work with you, and for you, at every stage of the sales process; from initial instructions to successful completion.

Residential Lettings

We are experienced property professionals and strive to build long-term relationships with our Landlord clients. A number of these existing relationships span over decades.

Quality tenants drive a good tenancy. Graves Son and Pilcher have a strong, long-standing presence and attract high levels of tenant applications.

We are members of ARLA (Association of Residential Lettings Agents) and adhere to their strict Code of Practice.

We pride ourselves in providing a seamless in-house service. Each key stage is undertaken within our building and is directly overseen by a Partner. These include:

  • Initial Instructions
  • Comprehensive Marketing
  • Tenant Selection/ Referencing
  • Preparation of Contracts
  • Property Management
  • Client Accounting

Of particular note is that our Let Fees for managed and rent collection services are charged on a monthly basis. We believe it unfair to charge the entire fee upfront in the first month of the tenancy for a service that we are yet to provide.

Our Management Service is utterly transparent. We seek only to source maintenance support for Landlords from vetted contractors at competitive rates. Graves Son and Pilcher do not in any way benefit financially from these relationships.

COMMERCIAL

Commercial

Our dedicated agency team is committed to providing clients with a highly professional bespoke service on all types of commercial property matters including, disposals, acquisitions, business relocations etc. We have specialists in the retail/catering, offices, industrial/warehouse and in investment/development sectors.

Rating

We undertake Rating Assessments, Appeals and contribute to Valuation Tribunal Hearings.

Rent Reviews

We are regularly instructed to advise both landlords and tenants as to the proper rent to be paid for a particular property, both commercial and residential. As experienced Chartered Surveyors we are often appointed to act as either Arbitrator or Independent Expert to resolve disputes between parties.

Surveying

We provide a multidisciplinary Building Surveying Service locally and on a regional basis.

Valuations

We prepare valuations for residential and commercial purposes, and for statutory purposes. Our partners regularly appear as witnesses in Court and are appointed by RICS and other judicial bodies to determine value.
