Your Questions Answered


What is happening to CHK Mountford?
28 years after being established, CHK Mountford is to strengthen its ties and become part of John D Wood & Co.


Who is John D Wood & Co.?
John D Wood & Co. is a well-established, highly respected and expanding London estate agency which has played a
significant part in the London property market for over 140 years. The company currently has a network of 20 offices
across London and in Surrey, Oxford and Lymington as well as 15 associated companies with multiple branches across
the south of England and affiliated partners abroad.


Why is this happening?
Since our recent acquisition by Countrywide plc we have been working more and more with John D Wood & Co., one of Londonís most prestigious brands. The culture, values and ethos of both companies are so closely aligned that we are to strengthen this relationship by formally becoming part of John D Wood & Co. This will provide CHK Mountford
and our clients with access to John D Wood & Co.ís suite of services and network of offices, in order to provide a better, wider service.


Who will I deal with now?
CHK Mountford team members will remain in place looking after your interests as they always have done. However we will now be able to leverage the John D Wood & Co. brand to enhance our ability in achieving your property related goals. To this end you will begin to see the John D Wood & Co. logo appearing alongside ours.


My property is currently managed by CHK Mountford, what will happen?
Your property will continue to be managed by the same property managers who are part of the same property management team working out of the same premises. Absolutely nothing will change in terms of the industry-leading levels of service that we constantly strive to achieve and that you have become accustomed to. The only difference will be the appearance of the John D Wood & Co. logo alongside CHK Mountfordís.


My property is currently available for rental with CHK Mountford, what will happen?
Your property will continue to be fully marketed and will continue to be promoted on the leading property portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation. The staff you are currently dealing with will remain looking after your sale or rental. There will be no disruption in the marketing or promotion of your property, in fact the closer ties will increase the exposure of your property through John D Wood & Co.ís expanded branch network, its higher profile in the property market and its extensive marketing, especially across digital channels.


My property has a let agreed, what will happen?
The expert progression of your rental will continue unaffected. The staff currently looking after your rental will continue to see your transaction through to conclusion and will be on hand as always to handle any additional transactions.


Will there be any changes to the fee or contract term previously agreed for rental?
No, the fee and contract term agreed at the outset will remain in place.


How will the service I receive from CHK Mountford be enhanced by becoming part of John D Wood & Co.?
Whilst you will still continue to deal with the same staff, whether letting or managing your property, they will be backed by a much larger organisation including an established corporate and relocation department dedicated to sourcing corporate tenants from blue chip companies worldwide.
