Our Services

What makes us different

..small and personalized offering an intimate level of service not found anywhere else.

Accurate valuations

We’ll apply our in-depth knowledge of your local property market to provide you with a realistic and informed asking price, along with our strategy for achieving it and a reasonable time frame in which we hope to sell your home.

Home Report

You have to provide a Home Report to show anyone who is genuinely interested in buying your property: this is a legal requirement. A Home Report has three compulsory features:

  • A Single Survey and Valuation has to be carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. The Survey contains information about the present structural condition of the house, disabled access, and estimated value.
  • The Energy Report has to be carried out by a Chartered Surveyor, and it rates your property’s energy efficiency and green credentials.
  • The Property Questionnaire has to be completed by the seller. This contains information useful to a buyer, such as Council Tax band or certificates of guarantee for any recent building work. You can complete this form with the help of your selling agent or solicitor.


We can advise you on the best platforms or firms to use to create your Home Report. Alternatively, we can arrange for a Home Report to be carried out on your behalf.

Marketing your property

We spend time and use professional cameras with skilled photography to capture the best pictures, write comprehensive property descriptions, all in just one visit. Your property will be instantly available on our website bellusproperty.co.uk and other major portals. To find your perfect buyer we would also contact relevant applicants from our excellent contact list.

Family Business

We proudly remain an independent family business, so we have no layers of bureaucracy and no head office demands, instead we offer exceptional customer service an a highly professional and efficient way of working.

Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful sale. Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to DE clutter to make rooms appear larger. There are lots of clever ways to present your home in the best light in order to make it stand out to buyers and generate the highest possible sale price. Our senior valuer will provide a fresh pair of eyes, suggesting the little touches that you can implement right now to make a big difference.

Available when you are

Last year nearly 80%of all viewing appointments were booked or carried out after office hours and over the weekend that’s why we are available in the evening too, ensuring potential buyers or tenants have every opportunity to view your home.

Accompanied Viewings

If the thought of showing people around your home is more than a little intimidating or If your time is too tight to show people around yourself, we’ll happily carry out viewings on your behalf.

Instructing a solicitor

The successful purchase of a property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to use a solicitor who knows the area that you’re moving to and specialises in conveyancing. We have a selection of tried and tested solicitors that are experts in property who we would be happy to recommend.

  • Hi Joe Thanks again for your great work selling our house at the price we wanted in a week !!!!! couldn't ask for any better personal service. 9 years ago you sold our flat fast and at a great price so when we decided to sell our house this time you were the first person we thought of. you had changed estate agent but for us it was about your personal service and not the company and it was great that you remembered me and the easiest bit of the stress of moving was selling our house and for that we would recommend Joe Hassan to anyone looking to sell there house. Many Thanks Chris Currie Chris Currie

Both times the properties were sold very quickly and efficiently. Rico Margiotta
  • The quality of the material and photographs were excellent and I particularly appreciated the opportunity to review these before publishing. I was also impressed over your estimation of valuation and selling probability which turned out to be spot on. I also appreciate your personal advice on the critical decisions which I also feel have been very effective – the sale has met the top valuation we expected and the timescales have been to our needs Derek W.
