Buying Flats and Houses in Islington

Here at Hugh Grover Associates, we love nothing more than matching a gorgeous Islington home with a buyer who’s head over heels with the property. We’re passionate about the local area, which is why nothing makes us happier than pairing sellers with future residents who love N1 too.

We’ll accompany you on all your viewings, we’ll learn from your reactions, and more likely than not, we’ll phone you up to say "we’re just about to take a property on that I think will be perfect for you". In short, we take an interest. To give you a taster of what we can offer, modern flats, period properties and houses for sale in Islington are all waiting to be discovered in our online portfolio




Buying your property - our process

Buying the perfect property can be stressful and confusing. At Hugh Grover Associates, we aim to keep jargon to a minimum – allowing for a smooth, hassle-free sale.


Have you seen a property online that catches your eye? Contact us to arrange a viewing or simply talk through your requirements with a member of staff. The Hugh Grover Associates team work hard to get to know you, your tastes and your requirements – helping them to find the ideal home and the perfect area that suits you to a tee. 

We recommend viewing a number of properties together, to help you reach an informed decision. This allows you to compare properties and possibilities more easily, helping your personal negotiator to make further recommendations. 


If you require a mortgage, we recommend you start looking into one at the same time as you start looking at property. One process informs the other. Hugh Grover Associates does not offer mortgage advice – so we recommend you speak to an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) or an independent mortgage broker for specifically tailored advice.

Making an offer
If you love one of our houses for sale in Islington and would like to make an offer, let your contact at Hugh Grover Associates know with a written confirmation. Sellers will require the following information:
  • Names of all buyers
  • Level of offer
  • The amount you’ll pay in readily available funds
  • The amount you’ll pay through a mortgage
  • The amount you’ll pay dependant on an ongoing sale
  • Whether you have a mortgage agreed in principle with a lender
  • Whether your offer is dependent on a sale and what stage that sale is at
  • When you would be looking to exchange and complete on the purchase
If you’ve requested a mortgage, your lender will usually want to survey the property before making the loan. The most basic of these surveys is a mortgage valuation survey, where the lender satisfies themselves that the agreed sale price is fair within the current market.
You may also choose to carry out a building survey through your lender or through an independent firm of surveyors. For more information, and to decide which is most suitable for you and your purchase, please visit RICS.
