Selling your Home Services
– Independent Advice and Assistance

We work closely with our partner, Move with Us, to
manage all of the marketing and administration when
selling your current home, providing a personalised
service throughout the selling journey, including:

  • Identification of local estate agents and arranging market appraisals
  • Comprehensive valuation and marketing plan to secure the best possible price
  • Instruction and pro-active management of the estate agents and solicitors throughout the chain
  • Negotiation of offers
  • No sale no fee

Part Exchange
– When you don’t want to wait

Selling your home can take time.  With Part Exchange you could be moving into your new Mickle Hill home quicker than you thought possible, and it really is virtually hassle-free.

Mickle Hill can find a guaranteed cash buyer for your home from a third party. Once valuations on your current home have been completed, we will advise you of the best chain free cash offer, subject to a favourable survey. After you accept the offer a survey will be arranged and the seamless selling and buying process can begin.

Benefits of Part Exchange:

  • Peace of Mind with a guaranteed sale
  • Move in Quickly – no chain means delay risks are avoided
  • No Estate Agents’ Fees – there is no charge for arranging the Part Exchange
  • Flexible Moving Date – You could stay in your current home for up to 2 weeks after completion
  • No Obligation whatsoever to accept any offer

You could achieve a higher value for your current home by selling independently of part-exchange. Buyers are advised to take their own advice to ensure the part exchange scheme is suitable for their needs.

Short Term Finance

Mickle Hill has partnered with Knight Frank Finance to help you move into your new property before you sell your current home.

Conveyancing Solicitor -Getting the right legal advice is important.

You will require a solicitor to handle the legally binding purchase of a Mickle Hill home.  We can introduce you to an independent solicitor who is familiar with your new home’s lease, making the purchase conveyancing process as easy and smooth as possible.  They can also assist with the conveyancing for the sale of your current home.  The solicitor is completely independent of Mickle Hill, acting on your behalf. We encourage you to discuss your housing options with your family and friends, and to seek independent advice, support and representation as appropriate, in connection with a move to any retirement village.
