Has anybody used Quickbuyers before

Has anybody used QuickBuyers before. I am trying to sell my father's property as he has seen another property that is currently in no chain. I approached Quickbuyers who offered £100,000. Somebody came and took photos and asked lots of questions. All that they left my father was an offer letter which states: "Please accept this as confirmation that our agreed figure relating to the sale of the above property is £100,000. This offer is subject to an acceptable survey and report on title." Since then a company called Excel Property has been arranging viewings with my father and he received an initial offer of £89,000. After negotiating, I managed to get them to £93,000. Quickbuyers terms of business, which they never sent us, states they will make an initial offer in principle and then arrange for an appraisal of the property from a local valuer. Once they get the appraisal back they will then make a formal offer. Something just doesn't feel right about the process! Can anyone help with advice?????

  • Hi Barrattcat, So long as you haven’t signed anything you are free to pull out at any time. I would wait and see what the final offer is and go from there and get my solicitor to check any paperwork before signing it. Hope that helps.

  • Hi Barrattcat. A number of quick buy companies are not actual buyers but lead generators. Its important to know your dealing with a genuine quick sale company who will be the actual buyers (and not want an option to buy or sell on the lead). Ideally a quick buy company will be a cash buyer, this can be found easily by asking their Solicitor for proof of funds. Hope that helps, any other questions feel free to give me call.

  • Hi Barrattcat, Agree with the comments above. I would also ask your solicitor to verify the investor´s credentials (via Companies House and other related searches) and request the source of funds. Legitimate investors will have nothing to hide. The banks are placing stricter controls on the buy to let industry and becoming increasingly weary on who they lend to - so if your buyer is looking to finance the property purchase there may well be delays. All the best with the sale.
