Selling to a property buying company
Last Updated: 13 November 2020
Property buying companies usually offer to buy ‘any’ residential property, promising a guaranteed sale very quickly (from as little as 10 days in some cases). The catch is they offer below market value.
This type of sale is not for everyone, but may be worth researching if the costs and stresses of your empty property are so great you just want a quick resolution.
If you decide to pursue this route it would be a good idea to get written agreement from the company on the agreed offer. This may protect against the offer being reduced once the sale is agreed.
Please use the following links to external companies as a starting point for your own research. We found these companies during online research in February 2016 and updated in July 2018. This could help you decide whether this is the right route for you. As the council we can't recommend a company and we are not responsible for the accuracy or content of external websites.
