Get a fast divorce house sale

Separated or divorced? We buy homes for cash fast to help you move on

It’s a fact that 42% of marriages end in divorce and although its never an easy situation, owning an unwanted property can prolong things and delay the whole ‘moving on’ process.

At House Buy Fast we have helped many people sell their house quickly due to the breakdown of a relationship. We buy properties for cash and in some cases can complete the sale within days if that’s what’s needed.

Our team here is very experienced and will always try to go above and beyond to help wherever possible. That isn’t just by completing the sale quickly… we’ve paid cash advances to sellers so that they can secure a rental property and even arranged storage whilst another seller was between homes. If you need any help, please just tell us.

Contact us now for more information or to find out how much we will buy your home for.

How to sell your house quickly
after divorce or separation

Using traditional estate agency methods to sell your home after a divorce or separation can take many months. You may also have the uncertainty of buyers pulling out of the sale and lots of viewings delaying the process even more. This can be incredibly frustrating and stressful if you are looking for a quick house sale.

At House Buy Fast we aim to make the process of selling your property as quick and painless as possible.

We have cash funds readily available to buy your property. This means we don’t need to secure a mortgage and once you have accepted an offer from us we are a guaranteed buyer – meaning we won’t pull out of the sale. Our staff are very experienced in getting property sales completed in just days or weeks – or to a timescale to suit you. What’s more, we cover legal fees for the sale too, so what we offer is what you get (after loans/mortgage settlement).

The quick house sale process with House Buy Fast:

  1. Request a valuation on your house from one of our property experts.
  2. Find out the amount outstanding left on your mortgage, including any secured loans (we can assist you with this).
  3. Work out your selling time-scale and get a moving date in mind.
  4. We will deal with solicitors and pay their fees
  5. The money is paid into your bank account once the sale completes (which can happen in just days)

I found the help and assistance second to none.

My situation was extremely stressful and I got nothing but kindness and help. I was impressed with the level of knowledge and found Duncan far more knowledgeable than various people I needed to deal with at a very trying time for me.

How quickly can you buy my house?

Our cash funds and experience in quick house sales mean that we can buy your property fast. Often this can happen in under 2 weeks – but it can be as fast as a couple of days or we can work to whatever timescale suits you.

We can do this quickly because we use our own cash funds to buy property, there are no chains, we use solicitors we know can act quickly and have staff with vast experience of the property market.

How much will I get for my house?

When selling your house to House Buy Fast you can be assured that there are no estate agent or solicitor fees to pay, no hidden costs and we do not charge for our service. You will also get a quick house sale although this will not be at 100% of market value.

As with all cash property buying companies the offer we will make for your property will be lower than market value. However, when you take into account all the other costs associated with selling through the traditional estate agency route, the price may seem even better.

In the below table we set out some of the typical costs of selling a house through an estate agent and how House Buy Fast compares.

Things to consider when selling a house after divorce or separation

When deciding whether to choose a traditional estate agent or House Buy Fast to sell your home following a separation you might want to consider:

  • Are both parties agreeable to the sale? If not then you might need to consider options – such as one person buying the other out
  • How quickly would you like to sell?
  • Are there any special reasons to move on a set date – such as work commitments or schooling?
  • Is the house suitable for lots of viewings?
  • Will a house sale cover the mortgage/loans as well as fees to sell?
  • Will either or both parties look to buy another property once sold?
