Frequently Asked Questions

Never. You do not pay anything for our service and we provide the legal work and surveying for free.

Other companies may cover costs up to a certain value, but using us is, and always will be, free of charge.

We’ll make an approximate offer within a few hours of our initial chat, after researching your local market and similar properties.

We then organise an independent RICS surveyor to visit you and confirm our valuation at your convenience. They’re very accurate and normally there is no need to adjust our offer.

There are three things you can have good, fast or cheap but you can only pick two! 

‘Sell house fast’ is a service that can enable you to sell your property quickly but it won’t be as much as on the open market. There are no legal costs to sell this way.

Auction – Probably the second-fastest option but there is no guaranteed sale and it can still take a month or two, whilst you can set a reserve its unpredictable and might not be exactly what you wanted

Estate agencies – The most familiar and the longest and often most frustrating, sales drop out, there are a lot of legal fees (e.g. solicitor fees, estate agent fees, survey fees etc.) but it will also net you the most money 

Private Sale – It is possible to do this but there is a lot of paperwork and organising with it so it could be the fastest or the slowest way to sell your house.

A quick house sale avoids using a traditional estate agent or Auctioneers to find a buyer and means you can sell in less than a week.

We have vast cash funds at our disposal and purchase your property directly through a solicitor, who handles all the legal work.

We do not find a buyer for your property or get an investor involved, nor do we sell your details on to other property buying companies. It’s a straightforward, no-strings attached cash purchase directly by us.

Put simply, when a property seller bypasses traditional estate agents or an auctioneer and talks directly with the buyer, the sale is private.

Every part of the process (including the marketing, viewings and negotiations) is kept private between the property buyer and seller, rather than a third party marketing the property on their own website or websites such as Rightmove or Zoopla.

The attraction of a private house sale is that sellers can avoid paying high street estate agents fees, which can often run into thousands of pounds.

Also some buyers and sellers like dealing direct with each other, rather than through a third party, such as the high street estate agent.

You will need a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to carry out all the legal work when buying and selling your home. Legal fees are typically £850 – £1,500 including VAT at 20%.

They will also do local searches, which will cost you £250 – £300, to check whether there are any local plans or issues.

If you decide to us to sell your house with us, then we will cover all these costs for you.

The following links are regulators and redress schemes that are worth noting if you come across any issues dealing with property buying companies.

Quick house sale regulations

The first and most important thing to understand when you are looking to use a quick house sale is if they are unregulated, unlike traditional estate agents who while they need no qualification need to adhere to the Estate Agents Act 1979 act there is no regulation surrounding the practice fast house sale business model. Don’t worry we’ll tell you how to avoid scams below.

What protection is available to me if I wanted to use a ‘sell house fast’ service?

Whilst there is no regulation this doesn’t mean you can stay safe from scams and getting ripped off which could happen in any number of other industries. The National Association of Property Buyers is a coalition of companies to have agreed to follow a standard set of rules to ensure customers remain safe. This doesn’t give you any legal rights however, it can help give you peace of mind when dealing with a quick house sale company. If the company you are dealing with is not a member of this association it should prompt further research.

Find information about companies via company house. You can research most companies and find information about when they were created, who owns them and such and ensure that they are legitimate.

Find out when the website was registered- who.is using a website like who.is you can also find when a website was first registered which can help find if it’s new or now, it should be noted that a website can be sold and traded and keep its initial registration date.

Examples –

Both of the below are not members of the NAPB or The Property Ombudsman (TPO) schemes which should be a prompt for further research, we’ve done some basic and quick research below to show you.

The nature of business is listed as (62090) – Other information technology service activities

Not real estate or property

Incorporated on 9 August 2006

Website registered the Registered on: 22-Feb-2006

Conclusion

So while they are not members of the NAPB and they are the business is not listed as property-related they should be helpful for getting advice. It seems the brand and site have been registered for long enough to also gain some trust, they most likely gain revenue through referrals.

 

Webuyanyhouse

webuyanyhouse.co.uk company CROMWELL EQUITY LIMITED no. 09922223

The nature of business is listed s (68320) – management of real estate on a fee or contract basis –

Property related though potentially through multiple means.

Incorporated on 18 December 2015

Website registered on: 13-Sep-2010

Conclusion

No way related to webuyanycar the company registration and website registration are different which most likely means at some point the website was bought or transferred. At the time of writing the company’s accounts are overdue with HMRC which could be a concerning point if you were looking to sell your house with them.

How ‘sell house fast’ companies work

Quick property sale companies tend to work by being cash buyers of properties. You won’t get a full market value for the property and instead you should expect around 85% of the market value. Some will offer a cash advance once contracts are signed and you can normally complete a sale in around 10 days or it can be individually tailored to your needs.

Help choosing the best quick house sale company

On this page we’ve looked at a lot of information on staying safe in the quick house sale industry but how do you select the best company? There are a few factors you should check. The first thing to remember you do not need to be tied into one company and shouldn’t be afraid to shop around, find the best price and circumstances (like alignment in a completion date) that work for you but never sign anything until you are happy.

Check the companies reviews, this can be helpful to find how others were treated. Get the final purchase price in written confirmation before go ahead to avoid last-minute drops in prices.

Ask questions, you can always ask any company details on the process, their background and anything that will help put your mind at ease and if it helps feel free to check on any info they provide. Genuine companies don’t have anything to hide the business model is simple enough.

Best tips to help sell a home fast.

Selling your home can be a stressful prospect and depending on property market conditions can be either a breeze or pile on even more stress. In the last few years, many people have been lucky that the market has made it a bit easier to sell. If you need some of the best tips to help sell we recommend some of the following:

  • Clean house
  • Realistic price
  • New home smell
  • Freshen up

A clean house sells, sometimes it can also be beneficial to put your furniture in storage to make the environment look even bigger to prospective buyers, remember you are trying to sell someone on the house not the stuff in it.

If it’s not selling try reducing the price, you can look at what other house prices in the area are to compare and see if you match or reduce to help sell quicker.

A light scent can help sell but if the smell is too heavy it can put people off making them feel you are trying to ide something and generally after a good clean you should be good to help sell.

You want your property to be a blank canvas so a quick lick of neutral paint can help paint a picture of what your house could be to future occupants.

Whilst these are quick and option steps they can help sell or in some cases increase the value of your property. If you are still having problems with selling you could look into alternatives from other estate agents to property auctions or even quick house sales companies like us.

If you need help to sell your property please get in touch with SpeedPropertyBuyers, you can find out much you could get today.
