FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions.

How much will I get for my property?
This is entirely dependent on the exact route to sale that you decide to take. If selling your house fast is something that you are interested in, and by fast we mean to sell for cash in 7 - 10 days, then the cash house sale buying team will make you an offer of a 85 per cent of current market value. Each individual property is different, whether that be the precise location, the condition of the market, and of course the condition of the property all play a role in the offer we make. If you are considering selling with our quick estate agency service you can set the price, so speak directly to our team about this. Our dedicated support team can be contacted on 0800 612 7917. If you are interested in our assisted property sale method, we can offer you 95 per cent of the current market value of your home albeit that there are a lot of factors to take into consideration, so call an advisor today and get an offer.

Are any fees charged for selling my property?
There are absolutely NO fees to pay. When you decide to sell your property to us for cash, we will pay everything, marketing fees, solicitors for yourself and us, as well as the all-important legal costs. And don’t forget as an added bonus we will also pay for your valuation. The estate agency service has a slightly different fee structure, and you will need to discuss this with an advisor directly but the assisted sale service also has no fees to pay.

How do I know that you are a genuine cash buying firm?
We can provide you will proof of funds. We have disposable cash readily available to buy any property in the UK up to and including a value of £1 million. We will buy properties from £10,000 up to £1 million at the right price, and we only ever buy with cash. We have fund in excess of £500 million readily available to purchase UK property for cash.

How long does it take to get a sale of my property?
As a cash buyer we can genuinely complete your sale in 7 to 10 days maximum. As we don't need a mortgage because we buy with cash, and we have reliable solicitors on hand to act fast and work in our favour to get the sale through in a time scale that suits you. If you choose our assisted sale model, we will look to get a sale in 40 days’ maximum. This may be a bit longer than a instant cash sale but you will be guaranteed a higher price. You may also consider our estate agency service. It is not possible to put a time scale on this option because we are relying on the open market and general public. But we are experts in this area and give a great service.

Is it possible to stop a repossession?
Absolutely YES. We are very much in the business of stopping repossessions, and we will even attend court on your behalf. However you must not delay if your home is under a threat of repossession, call us today on 0800 612 7917 to get this moving immediately.

Can I sell and then rent the property back?
No, all sell and rent back schemes in the UK are now closed to unregulated companies within this sector. However we may be able to help you with a short term rental accommodation once your sale has completed, so that you can decide what your next move is going to be.

Is there a contract or legal obligation that I am tied into?
There are no contracts for a cash service and you are in no way obligated to sell up until the point we exchange contracts. This means you can get a valuation at our cost, without paying a penny or worrying about being tied in. In addition, our estate agency service only asks for 28 days’ notice to remove your property from our advertising.

I've heard some horror stories about dropping the price last minute?
Sadly there have been many horror stories around the dropping of prices last minute.  We categorically do not condone this practice. We are a service orientated business that prides ourselves on putting the needs of the customer first.  Our online offer price  is indicative, which means you should only use this as a guideline, however, once we have an independent surveyor value your home - we make you a formal offer, valid for 14 days, and we promise to pay you that price, no if's or but's! The estate agency service is different as you are relying on the open market, and therefore the general public.

My house is in poor condition, will you still buy it?
Yes we buy property regardless of the condition. This could be because you have started doing up a property but were unable to finish or it could be that the property was trashed by tenants.  It makes no odds to us even if it has structural issues we will buy it. Why not speak to a member of our team?

Do I have to vacate my property immediately when it is sold?
Absolutely not, we will work with you on a timescale to suit your circumstances. We are flexible enough to allow you to stay in your house so that it works best for you, and may offer this free of charge. Have a word with our team about this service if you have any further questions.

I have a tenanted property – will you buy it?
Yes, we certainly will. Often customer do not like to evict tenants so we may buy your occupied property and then evict the tenant after sale, or put the property into auction with sitting tenant. However from our experience every property and sale is unique so our team of experts will work with you to come up with the right solution for your needs.

Do you buy holiday homes, commercial property and hotels?
Unfortunately we don't buy any of these, unless they have consent to have their use changed.

I own 50% of my property, are you still interested?
Unfortunately we are unable to help in these circumstances.

Do you buy property in Northern Ireland?
We do not but our sister company based in Northern Ireland will be happy to help.

Do you buy property in Wales?
Yes but only in some parts of Wales, especially close to city centres.

Do you buy property in Scotland?
We do not but we work very closely with another company based in Scotland. They are the biggest buyer of Scottish property. Click here to visit their website.

Just want to say thank you to the team at Property Buyer. I waited 6 months with no luck from my estate agent. You managed to source a buyer in a matter of hours, and our sale completed in under 2 weeks. We can now move into our new home without the problems of the sale of our old house hanging over us.
