Through Rent Back Experts, a trading style of Property Rescue Ltd, we are one of the only sell and rent back providers authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our firm’s reference number is 522471. We aim to teach about both the pros and cons of sell and rent back, to help you make an informed decision about whether sell and rent back is the right choice for you.
Sell and rent back, sometimes called, sale and rent back, rent back scheme or sale and lease back refer to schemes whereby you can sell your home and rent it back as a tenant. Sell and rent back schemes are often a last resort for people who want to release full equity from their property, but who don’t want to move house. The idea is that you sell your home to a private company, but remain living in the property as a tenant, paying rent each month.
Before you decide whether sell and rent back is right for you, it’s worth weighing up the pros and cons of the scheme. While sell and rent back might sound like a great idea on paper, it’s almost always better to sell your house fast and rent somewhere else. If you decide to sell fast to Property Rescue, instead of sell and rent back, our team can buy your house from you, as well as help you move home, in as little as 48 hours or at a timescale that works for you.
If you are looking to release full equity from your home quickly, then our sell house fast service may be the best alternative to sell and rent back. With sell house fast, you can get a higher cash offer on your home, as well as have cash in the bank within as little as 48 hours. Although, it means that you would need to move house, our relocation team can help you with that. We can assist with everything from finding your new rented home, to packing and moving your things. The entire process of selling your home fast is fee-free. Property survey and solicitor’s fees are fully covered by us and there are no estate agent costs either.
