How does the house selling process work?

Our simple house selling process has been crafted over 12 years of experience dealing with customers and selling properties.

1. Enter your postcode: 

Submit an enquiry online to check your properties eligibility.

Simply enter your postcode into the “get your offer” submission box and answer as many questions as you wish about your property. The more information you provide us initially the quicker and easier our team can analyse your property and situation. 

Our initial submission form includes entering your name, contact details and how fast you wish to sell your property. At this stage, our system will find your property and compare selling times to local data.

The following page will ask you more questions about your situation, so we can tailor the selling process to you as best as possible.

2. Get your free offer: 

Receive an offer within 24 hours, then we’ll visit your property to formalise it.

Once you have filled out the questionnaire, one of our property experts will be in contact within 24 hours, with a free, no obligation cash offer. Our cash offers are sourced using local data, your information and current market conditions.

Once you accept your offer, we will arrange one of our Regional Managers to visit the property and inspect it to see if it matches your expectations and answer any of your questions.

Once inspected, we will formalise our offer and the race to completion begins. 

3. Sell faster without fees: 

We’ll instruct solicitors and pay off the fees, then you exchange as normal. 

Our progression team will contact you to instruct an independent solicitor to act on your behalf. We will cover all legal fees, searches and arrange professional valuation of your property. 

Once all the legal work has been collected, valuations completed and everyone is happy with the offer, we will move forwards to exchange and complete on a timescale that suits you.

How can we buy your home for free? 

When you sell your home with us, we will cover all the fees associated with selling a house, and all the legal fees too. We are able to cover these fees, because we acknowledge that we are purchasing your property Below Market Value. 

This means that even though you are accepting a lower than market value price for your home, you won’t be met with any unexpected fees as well. 

What does selling Below Market Value mean?

Selling a house Below Market Value means that you are selling for less than full market value. People normally sell their homes Below Market Value in exchange for fast property sales due to financial struggles, inheritance and divorce. 

We will offer you anywhere between 75% to 85% Below Market Value, meaning we might buy your £165,000 house for £140,250. But, you won’t face any legal or estate agent fees, meaning you also save up to 6%+VAT on estate agent and solicitor fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have a few questions? Check out our FAQs below for more information:

Are we legitimate?

Yes - we are legitimate cash house buyers and we’re one, if not the biggest in the industry. If you want to see other customers’ experiences you can check out our Trustpilot, but we’re also members of the National Association of Property Buyers & The Property Ombudsman.

What will happen to your house?

When you sell your house to us, we will do all that we can to ensure that your property is looked after. If you hand it over to us, and it needs some TLC, then we will make sure we get this to the right person to fix it up.

Can we really buy that fast?

Yes - we really can & do. Although we are able to buy in 7 days, it’s rare that people are ready to move that quickly, so our average is more around the 2-3 week mark.

The reason we’re able to move so quickly is primarily because we don’t require a mortgage, which saves a lot of time - but on top of that we also work with solicitors that we recommend, who are able to fast track our purchases.

Are we really free?

Again yes! We cover all your fees as long as you go with the solicitors that we recommend. You will pay absolutely nothing.

Once agreed, is the sale guaranteed?

That’s a tough one - yes, as long as everything is described, the sale is guaranteed. Buying a property isn’t like buying a loaf of bread, and there can be things that come up on the survey that severely impact value, which we would have to discuss, so we can’t completely guarantee it from that first conversation.

How do we make money?

We buy your property for Below Market Value, far quicker than a traditional sale & then we try sell it closer to market value.

We take a risk in doing this, with something as high value as a house & with the forever changing house prices, not every property makes money.

Do you need to view my property & get a survey?

We don’t view every property that we buy, but we do try to view most. We also typically get a survey on every property we directly purchase.

Don’t you just take advantage of those in debt?

No, not at all. This is a common misconception, but most of the people we buy from are simply moving on, we also legally can’t leave people in negative equity. 

There are a small percentage (below 5%) of people that come to us with debt-related issues & in a tricky situation. On these types of enquiries, we always take the utmost care & ensure that we offer a service that would benefit them.
