I want to sell my house in the UK, but I live abroad

The Property Buying Company is the right choice if you're looking for speed, convenience and assurance,

Yes. This is a fairly straight-forward process. If you use an estate or online agent then they can do all of the leg work for you regarding viewings and offers. You don’t even have to come back to the UK to deal with contracts and other legal documents as your solicitor should be able to recommend a trustworthy courier service. It’s also possible for you to give power of attorney to a relative or close friend who can act on your behalf from the UK.

The main thing to be aware of when you sell your UK property whilst living abroad, is that you might have to pay Capital Gains Tax. You won’t generally pay tax for any tax years in which you, your spouse or civil partner spent at least 90 days in that property. To qualify for this, you must state that the home is your only or main home when you inform HM Revenue and Customs that you’ve sold it.

Even if you don’t have to pay any tax, you must inform HMRC that you’ve sold your property within 30 days of transferring ownership. This is quite a tight deadline so be prepared for it.

As cash buyers, The Property Buying Company can buy your property from you, even if you live abroad. All legal fees are included and we can complete in a timescale to suit you. We can’t pay the full price, but we will pay a fair price and can take the hassle out of selling your property from abroad. Get in touch today to find out more.

The team were all extremely helpful and polite and made every effort to ensure a speedy turnaround. Even offering to cover upfront search costs, in order to expedite the searches, should the outcome of probate not be favourable. They have regularly contacted me to keep myself and my solicitor informed of how the sale was proceeding. The teams efforts didn't stop at the sale of the property. Post sale they have provided expert support and invaluable contacts to ensure my project doesn't delay. Thank you for all your help, I look forward to our next purchase together. Regards Mark
