Matchmaking services

Last Updated: 3 April 2024

If you have an empty home we could have a buyer for you in South Lakeland through our matchmaker scheme, as people often ask us about buying empty properties.

Once a prospective buyer has been put in touch with an empty home owner, both parties can arrange a viewing and any follow up contact if they want.

Benefits to you of selling your empty home include:

  • zero council tax to pay, as this is paid by the new owner
  • zero insurance and maintenance costs, as these will be paid by the new owner
  • zero headache of owning an empty home and not knowing what to do with it

Homes matching

Help with repairs before selling

Homes matching services can help pay for repairs before you sell your property.

They can assess the necessary repairs, price them up and get an independent quotations. They can manage the repairs needed at no upfront cost to you and labour can be locally sourced if possible. All work is usually paid for through an increased sales price afterwards.

Homes matching services can also find buyers for the property. For example, if there is a suitable buyer match and the property needs repairs before selling, the buyer can choose what they would like done before they buy.
