National Homebuyers will purchase any home in the UK, regardless of location or condition. Before making you an offer, they will consult with local estate agents to ensure that your property is fairly valued. They don’t specify the percentage of the property’s market value they will offer, but they do state that it will be less than market value.
National Homebuyers, established in June 2006, is a cash house buyer based in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. They guarantee to purchase any house, regardless of location or condition, with funds transferred in as little as seven days – though they state that four weeks is a more realistic timeframe.
National Homebuyers claim they can help if you need to sell your house to avoid foreclosure, going through a separation or divorce, have inherited a property, or are in a broken chain. They can also assist landlords who wish to sell their property without disturbing their tenants; they will purchase the property while the tenants continue to occupy it.
You must complete an online form, and they will contact you to discuss the interior of the house, along with details on the surrounding neighbourhood and amenities. Additionally, they will consult with local estate agents to obtain an accurate valuation. National Home Buyers will then conduct a valuation report, which will determine their cash offer. They state that the entire process, from initial contact to receipt of offer, will take seven days. You will then have approximately 14 days to decide whether to accept or decline the offer. If you do, they will contact you to arrange a date for completion.
