What is a cash house buyer?
Cash house buyers have all the funds needed in-house to buy your property directly. This means that you will be selling to a chain-free buyer who can complete on a date that works best for you.
You will not receive the full market value for your house when using a cash buyer. For example, the average Leicester house sold for £282,733 last year – but if you used Sold.co.uk, your offer would be slightly below this.
Sold.co.uk covers your legal fees and does not take a commission from the sale. This guarantees that 100% of the final sale price goes in your pocket – and often counterbalances the slightly-below-market offer that you receive.
You can ask your cash buyer for proof of funding, or voice any queries you may have, at any time – and if they are a reliable firm, they will give you everything you need.
You should also check their online reviews and their Companies House filing history to confirm that they are a legitimate organisation in Leicester.
Why would a seller want a cash house buyer?
The traditional method of selling your house is broken.
High street estate agents no longer provide the customer care, efficiency, and attention to detail that they once did. Instead, when you try to sell your house in Leicester, you are met with an expensive, drawn-out process of price negotiations, surveys, viewings and much more.
There is now a better way.
Rather than using one of the 77 traditional estate agencies in Leicester, homeowners are turning to Sold.co.uk as an excellent alternative. We put the power back into your hands – so you can sell for a price you’re comfortable with, in a timeframe that is most convenient for you, without the stress of chasing up inefficient estate agents.

What are the benefits of using a cash house buyer?
When you use a cash house buyer in Leicester, you can unlock several advantages that a traditional high street estate agent cannot offer. If any of these factors are important to you, then it may be worth investigating the viability of selling directly to Sold.co.uk.
Your legal fees will be covered when you work with Sold.co.uk, and you will not have to pay for a survey or estate agent’s commission, either. You can sell your Leicester house for completely free so that 100% of the final price goes straight to you.
With many conveyancers charging several thousands, and the typical 1.4% commission representing a loss of £3,958 on an average house in Leicester, you will save huge amounts in costs by using Sold.co.uk.
You can sell your house in Leicester faster than any other route when you use a cash house buyer. Sold.co.uk is committed to buying your property within 7 days, or in a timeframe that is most suitable for you. We can do this because all our funds are in-house, meaning that we aren’t reliant upon anyone else for funding.
There are plenty of situations when a fast sale can be extremely useful. For example, if you are facing financial difficulties or are being threatened with repossession, a lump sum of cash can get you out of your difficult position.
You will also benefit from a fast sale if you need to relocate in a short space of time, if you are going through a divorce and want to ‘cut ties’ as quickly as possible, or if you want to offload a Leicester property that would not be acceptable on the open market – for example, because it is tenanted or derelict.
Selling your house in Leicester on the open market leaves you vulnerable to the deal falling through – perhaps because someone else in the chain drops out, or because your potential buyer lowers their offer at the last minute.
By contrast, using Sold.co.uk guarantees a sale, because we are not dependent on anyone else for our funding. If you want to offload your property in Leicester, then you can.
We buy any property, in any condition
While your house’s condition will impact the offer you receive, it will not affect our ability to buy it. Often, on the open market, potential buyers will want to live in any house that they buy – and if this isn’t a possibility with yours, it will put them off the deal completely.
By contrast, whether your Leicester property is tenanted, derelict, probate property or has an extremely short lease, you can sell directly to Sold.co.uk without any problems.
Stress free sale
Do you want to keep the stress in your life down to a minimum?
Although selling your property in Leicester is generally considered to be an extremely stressful process, it doesn’t have to be that way. Sold.co.uk can remove the hassle of viewings, negotiations, conveyancers and property chains from your life – so that the deal is as straightforward and stress-free as it can possibly be.

What can I expect when working with a cash house buyer?
You will receive slightly less than the typical market value when working with a cash house buyer.
However, once you factor in the costs that Sold.co.uk saves you (e.g. legal fees, commission on the final sale, and more) the final amount that you pocket will often be very similar to an on-the-market deal.
Any trustworthy cash house buyer will show you proof of funding if you ask for it. Sold.co.uk is happy to do so whenever you wish. Furthermore, a few other ‘green flags’ that indicate a Leicester cash house buyer is legitimate includes:
- Lots of online reviews
- Registers members of the NAPB and TPO scheme
- They have a phone number you can call to ask any questions
- They have a professional-looking website
- You can find information about the Directors of the company, to see if they are trustworthy or experienced
As a final note, please keep in mind that the valuation you receive from Sold.co.uk may change slightly once your property has been fully surveyed.
This is because it may highlight issues with the house that we weren’t previously aware of.
If you find a company in Leicester that offers the full price for your property in its valuation, then you should not trust them.
