With part-exchange you have a guaranteed buyer and no lengthy chain to worry about with the prospect of it falling through.

The whole process is quick and simple plus you can even save on having to pay an estate agent’s fee.

How does it work?

Step 1: One of our sales advisors will take the details of your existing home. We’ll usually link up with a part exchange partner who ask up to three local agents to value the property.

Step 2: Our part exchange partners will draw up a report, which we’ll share with you, and they’ll make you a direct offer for your property.

Step 3: If you accept the offer, the deal is done. Subject to survey and normal legal checks, you have a guaranteed buyer.

Step 4: Complete the reservation paperwork for your new build home. You can then get straight into the enjoyable stuff like choosing your new kitchen, tiling and flooring!

What are the benefits?

  • You get a guaranteed buyer without having to constantly show people around your home.
  • You don’t have to worry about a sale falling though and losing the plot you are buying.
  • You can move quicker so you are more likely to secure the exact plot you want.
  • You save on estate agents’ fees – we cover all the agents’ fees and legal fees for buying the home, you just need to cover your legal fees for selling it to us.

Anything else I should know?

Part Exchange is only available on selected plots at selected developments, so it’s best to speak to our sales team at the development where you’d like to buy.

We may wish to remarket their home while you are still living there, depending on how far off your new home is form being ready. Don’t worry – an estate agent can deal with the viewings if you wish.

There must be a difference of at least 25% between the value of your existing home and the one they you from us (the one you are buying from us being the higher priced property).
