A guaranteed* chain-free cash buyer for your existing property, enabling you to reserve your new Crest Nicholson home.
Find your brand new Crest Nicholson home.
To establish the price that we are prepared to pay for your existing home, we will arrange for up to three local estate agents to assess the value of your existing home in the current market conditions. This process normally takes no more than 10 days.
Provided that your existing home meets the terms and conditions required for Part Exchange, we will make you an offer which will be subject to contract, structural survey and the appropriate legal searches.
Once you’ve accepted our offer for your existing home, you can proceed to reserve your new Crest Nicholson property. You will then need to instruct a solicitor and arrange a mortgage, if required, in the usual way.
If you wish, we can suggest new homes specialist independent advisors to identify your financial requirements. If you are not sure which solicitor to use, we can also suggest a selection of local firms to assist you in progressing smoothly and efficiently through the process.
We will help guide you through the buying process, ensuring that your move to your new Crest Nicholson home is as effortless as possible.
