Long-term care in later life can be challenging, especially when considering how to fund it without impacting your loved ones. If the cost of care exceeds your available resources, or financial assistance is unavailable due to exceeding asset thresholds, selling your property may become necessary.
If you do need to sell quickly to help fund care home costs, we can help. Property Rescue specialise in buying homes fast and can buy any home in any condition in as little as a week or two, so you have a cash lump sum in your bank to pay for the care you want.
Selling a home is overwhelming at the best of times, and even more so when you or a loved one are moving into care.
At Property Rescue, we’ve got more than 20 years’ experience helping those in need get the sale they’re seeking. We understand this can be a stressful time, and we’re here to provide support throughout the process.
Contact us, and we can make you a guaranteed cash offer – whatever the condition or location of the property. And if you’re in a hurry, we can work to your timeframes. Even if you need an offer on the day you talk to us, we can help.

One of the great things about selling your home with Property Rescue is that our team will work to a time frame that suits you. Once you make contact with us, we will explain the process and conduct some research on your property. We will give you an offer based on an agreed valuation between us.
Typically, you will receive 20% less than Market value. To put it another way we offer about 80% of the market value plus we pay all the legal fees and associated costs
When you contact us our team of experts work quickly to calculate the value of your property and produce an offer all based on research. We use a variety of tools, which are also used by Banks, RICS Surveyors and Estate Agents.
No, you will not need to pay for your property to be valued. There are no hidden costs with Property Rescue and that includes our valuation on your property. Once you reach out to us, we will schedule an appointment with a reputable asset management company to thoroughly assess and document your property. The findings will then be sent to local and independent estate agents to provide an accurate valuation.
Once you contact Property Rescue, our team work diligently to complete thorough research and provide you with a fair cash offer as quickly as possible. In fact, you can typically expect an offer within 24 hours of contacting us. In many cases, we are able to make an offer on the same day. For situations that require more urgency, we will do everything in our power to ensure your needs are met.
Once your sale is complete, we will transfer the funds to your appointed solicitor, who will handle the transaction your behalf. The entire process typically takes only a few days, ensuring you receive your funds in a timely manner. We will pay off your mortgage and the remaining proceeds from the sale will be deposited into your bank account.
Customer confidentiality is of paramount importance to Property Rescue. We will never share your details with anyone. We are proud of our ‘Best in Class’ practices and we always act with complete discretion. We follow OFT Guidelines, and we are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (for Sale and Rent Back) as well as being members of The Property Ombudsmen. We don’t put ‘For Sale’ boards outside the property or anything that could draw attention to the sale of your property. If we visit your property, we ensure discretion.
