A little bit about us
We are a professional and ethical family-run business operating since 2002, wishing to help people who need (or wish) to sell their house quickly.
We were one of the first professional landlords to offer a Sale and Rent Back (SRB) service and adopted strict ethical operational principles. We became interim-authorised by the FSA on 1st July 2009 but, after 3 months, we decided to relinquish our authorisation and gain more flexibility by instead working with an FSA authorised partner.
We now mainly buy properties using private funds totalling around £0.5bn, unlike most of our competitors who rely upon buy-to-let mortgages to fund purchases. In the current economic climate, buy-to-let mortgages have become very hard to obtain - so our competitors, almost all depending on buy-to-let mortgages, often have to pull-out at the last minute when their mortgage application is declined.
When we buy using private funds (from private equity funds, hedge funds and individual investors), once we confirm an offer to buy your property, we won't need to pull out (unless, unusually, a legal problem with you/your property later comes to light).
One of our private funds (£150m available) allows us to buy certain properties in London and South-East England for hard cash, completing the whole process within as little as one week. Not many companies can genuinely compete with that on such a large scale.
Because of all the above, we believe we are now servicing around half of the UK "quick sale" property market. In 2008 the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) estimated there were around 1,000 "quick sale" companies operating. We now handle the enquiries from around half that number of companies - meaning that if you make an enquiry to a "quick sale" company, there is a strong chance you will end up speaking to us.
If you need to sell your house quickly to raise cash without being billed for fees, then read about Our Services then Contact Us. We aim to make you a personal customised offer within a day and achieve completion within one month. We can often reverse repossessions even up to a month after physical eviction.
