Brilliant, easy to deal with and efficient

All the staff I dealt with were professional and a pleasure to deal with.

I was particularly impressed with Andy in the Sales Department; he was helpful from the beginning and throughout the process, which made the sale a straightforward and pleasant experience. His understanding of purchasing houses was first class.

I would have no hesitation to recommend this company.

Process To Stop Repossession

Cash House Sale Solution
Accelerate Homes are trusted members of the
  • The National Association Of Property Buyers
  • The Property Ombudsman

The process of stopping your house from being repossessed requires acting quickly and decisively.

There are a number of stages to house repossession. Initially the process begins when you start missing repayments on your mortgage or against your secured loan. Your lender will contact you to try work out a solution. This is usually called a financial arrangement or payment plan.

If you are unable to meet your lender's payment plan, your lender will likely contact the courts and you will receive a letter summoning you to a repossession hearing. At this stage it is not too late to stop repossession proceedings by either finding a repayment solution or selling your property via a private sale or to a cash buyer like Accelerate Homes.

If you decide to go forward with the court hearing then there are four possible outcomes, after hearing all the evidence on your arrears and financial situation the judge:

  1. Issues a repossession order. It is difficult to stop repossession if this is the case and eviction proceedings will likely go ahead
  2. Issues a suspended repossession order. This allows you to stay in the house for a period of time (usually 28 days) to try sell the property or resolve your arrears position
  3. Adjourns the case due to medical reasons, for example
  4. Dismisses the case. This is a unlikely scenario as your lender's solicitors will usually be very organised for the hearing

Option 2 is usually the best outcome and still gives you time to stop house repossession. Generally a suspended repossession order gives you 28 days to resolve your arrears position. It is important that if you decide to sell to a cash buyer like us that you get in touch ASAP so we can move quickly to stop your house being repossessed.

Please note: If you have been served an eviction notice or have an eviction date we can still help you. Contact us immediately and we will help you complete from N244 to get a County Court Hearing. In general judges are always keen to avoid repossessions, so if you can prove that you have a willing cash buyer and the means to move to a new abode, then you can still avoid repossession. This is true even if you have served an N244 form before.

In all cases, if you are facing the horrible situation of repossession, please contact us as early as possible as we will most likely be able to help.

Repossession Sale Solutions

Cash Buyers vs. Estate Agents and Auctioneers

To stop house repossessions you have a few options. If you have the financial means the best solution is to setup a repayment plan with your lender. However if you are not able to meet repayment terms then the best alternative is to sell your home. Selling through an estate agent can take up to 6 months and auctioneers usually take big fees and don't get market values. Accelerate Homes specialise in helping customers in financial difficulties get the best possible CASH price for their house, and we can move incredibly fast!

These are the pros and cons as we see them.

Frequently Asked Questions

House Repossession Questions, Answered!

Facing repossession is incredibly stressful. We have helped many people navigate through troubled waters to achieve an outcome that they could never have dreamed of. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from customers.

What type of houses do we buy?
We will buy any type of house in the UK - detached, semi-detached, terraced, apartments, bungalows and ex-council flats / houses. We even buy non-standard construction homes. We work nationwide, except for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
What about house conditions?
When we say we buy any house we really mean it. We buy houses that need full refurbishments to new builds. We have bought houses with flood and fire damage as well as homes with damp, dry rot or even subsidence. If in doubt contact us!
Do you offer cash prices below market value?
To work out our offer price we use local market research and a RICs independent survey. Because we finance our purchases with 100% cash we can move incredibly quickly and make offers to help you secure the best possible cash price for your property. This is inevitably lower than an open market price that is subject to chains, estate agent fees, solicitor fees etc.
Do you offer upfront cash advances?
Yes. Depending on your circumstances we can offer upfront cash advances. It is also not unusual for us to allow sellers to stay in their property, rent free, for a short period after the sale to get affairs in order and ease the burden of moving.
What are the costs associated with selling my house?
There are no costs associated with selling your house to Accelerate Homes! We cover all your legal fees and the cost of the RICS property survey. We charge no admin fees. In fact we often also pay for house clearance and removal. There is literally no cost to sell to Accelerate Homes.
Are you a member of the The Property Ombudsman and The National Association Of Property Buyers?
Yes. We are one of the most active property buyers in the UK.
How fast can you purchase my house?
Speed is of the utmost importance if you are in the process of house repossession. We can complete in as little as 7 days but on average we work with you to negotiate favourable terms with your lender and the courts to delay eviction and complete sales in time for a comfortable transition to your new abode. On average we complete within 28 days.
