How does the home buying service work?

5 simple steps

If you would like to move quickly and easily, our home buying service is the right choice for you. You can part exchange your existing property for a property at an Audley village through our specialist partners, which means no fees and no chain to worry about. Our partners act as cash buyers and will purchase your existing property, giving you the peace of mind of a guaranteed sale and a seamless, stress-free 5 step process.

Step 1

Our sales team will assist you to find your perfect Audley property. Once you have chosen you simply need to provide details of your current home to us.

Step 2

We will obtain valuations from our network of trusted local estate agents and a survey from the Royal Chartered Institute of Surveyors to value your property.

Step 3

Our specialist home buying partner will then make an offer to purchase your home. If you accept the offer then a survey will be arranged and we will then confirm our offer.

Step 4

Our partner will pay £1,800 towards your legal fees if you use one of our panel solicitors. This will ensure a smooth exchange and completion process. You also don’t pay estate agency fees, as you are not selling your current home on the open market.

Step 5

Your property is now sold, your Audley property can be reserved and solicitors are instructed to proceed to exchange within 6 weeks. You can move in when your property is ready, or up to two weeks after the completion date if you need some extra time to make the move.
