A guaranteed and quick sale
The biggest advantage of using Part Exchange is the peace of mind of being able to buy and sell in one easy move.
No estate agent fees
Buying your house with Part Exchange means not having to worry about estate agents or their fees as we take away all of that for you by being your guaranteed buyer.
Chains can disrupt the sale of your property. If someone further up the chain suffers a problem, this will impact everyone all the way down. With Part Exchange, you won't have to worry about getting stuck in lengthy chains or any frustrating delays.
Fair value for your current home
After two independent valuations, we will offer you fair value for your current home and once the deal has been agreed, we take care of the rest of the process for you.
Stay in your old home until your new one is ready
Buying with Part Exchange is hassle-free as it means you can stay in your current home until the new one is ready. As we’re your guaranteed buyer, until we have your new home ready, we will not ask you to move out of your existing one.
What criteria do I need to meet?
- There are a few criteria you’ll need to meet to be eligible for Part Exchange. These are:
- Being a property owner
- Your current home shouldn't be more than 70% of the price of the home you want to buy
- Your current home should be kept in good condition both inside and outside
- Part Exchange is available only on selected homes
- If your property is a leasehold, you'll need to have a fixed term, usually 80 years left on the lease
How does Part Exchange Work?
The Part Exchange scheme is an easy and straightforward process. If you're unsure about how it works, read on as we break down each step for you.
Once you've set your sights on your energy-efficient Barratt home, get in touch with one of our Sales Advisers at the development in question. They'll ask you some questions about your property and its location. If you're eligible for Part Exchange, you'll need to fill in an application form. You'll also need to sign a reservation agreement and pay your deposit.
Once the relevant paperwork is ready, we'll run two independent evaluations of your home. You'll need to provide our estate agents, Part Exchange Manager or representatives with access to your property within 3 working days of submitting the application and paying your deposit. They'll assess its selling price and offer you fair value.
After assessing the value of your current home, we'll make you a verbal offer based on the premise that the house will sell between 8 and 10 weeks. You'll need to accept the offer within 2 working days.
Once you've accepted the offer, you'll need a solicitor to help you complete the sale. We'll also instruct our solicitor to survey the home to make sure everything is fine. While we finalise the last few things, you can stay in your current home until the new one is ready.
What homes will you consider for Part Exchange?
We consider all properties for Part Exchange to establish their methods of construction and characteristics. However, the scheme will only be available if your current home is no more than 70% of the selling price of the home you want to buy from us.
What is the difference between Part Exchange and Part Exchange Xtra?
With the Part Exchange Xtra scheme, we'll nominate an estate agent to handle all viewings and enquiries. We will also cover the estate agent fees for you. If your home doesn't sell, or the offer isn't satisfactory, we can become your guaranteed buyer with our Part Exchange scheme.
