Our office is open 9.00am – 5.30pm Monday to Fridays and 9am – 12.30pm Saturdays.
Once you have found a suitable property, and informed us of your offer we will put it forward to the seller. It may be requested that you prove you are in a position to proceed. For example by providing proof of cash funds or evidence of your mortgage agreed in principle.
Once your offer is accepted we will write to all parties to confirm the agreed price and possible conditions of offer. We will ask you to confirm your solicitor’s and mortgage broker’s details so we can prepare a memorandum of sale.

"To my friends @ Doolittle & Dalley I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding service over what must be close to thirty years of being my property letting agents. The property you own is probably one of the biggest investments you will make. Over the years I have heard some awful horror stories of tenants literally destroying the house they are renting. My answer to would be renters is to find yourself a really good agent. After three decades I am proud to recommend Doolittle & Dalley for their amazing service. They have become almost family to me, not only taking care of my property but advising me when repairs and upgrades were appropriate to keep my property in tip top rental condition. My name and contact numbers are available at Doolittle & Dalley if anyone wishes to call me to verify the authenticity of this letter. Once again Iâ€™d like to say that letting your property can be an expensive gamble, or you can team up with a first class outfit like D&D and take the guesswork out of it. Keep life simple - go with D&D "
