This company does what it says it will do

 

We sold our home under difficult circumstances. This is not an easy route, we sold our home at a substantial loss but it was our decision to do so, no pressure from anyone.
Kim and the company H.B.B did everything possible to make sure the sale and purchase of our new property went through smoothly. No last minute price drops or delays. This company does what it says it will do and if you need to go down this route rather than estate agents, I would recommend H.B.B.

Always at the end of the phone when I felt frantic

 

My husband and I are both in our 80’s and felt the need to live near our family once more. We put our property on the local market, but after 6 months had only had one serious viewing – property in our area was taking 2-3 years to sell and we just don’t have that time to wait anymore. After much discussion, and on-line research we decided to approach HBB, knowing that we would get a lower than market offer, but time was more important than dead money in the bank.
My contact was Kim, so helpful, so open, so very patient with an old lady who can’t (or won’t!) use a computer, and is very out of practise with “officialdom”. She steered me through the mound of paperwork which came pouring through the post, and was always at the end of the phone when I felt frantic. She even helped me with the paperwork on the purchase of our new property, which was going on at the same time.
So here we are, just 3 months later, safely settled in our new home, and surrounded at last by children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren plus sundry friends and boyfriends, who have all helped us feel at home.
So, thank you, Kim, for all your help, brow-soothing and question answering, and for being there, I feel I have found a friend more than a business associate. And thank you HBB for the service you provide, I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs a quick sale.

I have been so impressed with this company

 

I hadn’t moved home since 1990 and was very worried about using a company to sell my house to. I wanted to move quite quickly due to family trauma and saw an advert on T.V for this organisation. From the first contact until the day of completion I have been so impressed with this company. I dealt mainly with Dot and Kim, they were so helpful, gave me so much information and explained everything to me every step of the way. I would highly recommend The House Buyer Bureau as they delivered on everything that they had said.
At a stressful time in my life, they made my house move the best it could be at such short notice. I was even able to get a portion of my house sale money up front, upon exchange, to pay for all my moving costs. Obviously the money for my house was less than on the open market but the sale went through quickly and I had no fees to pay whatsoever. I would highly recommend The House Buyer Bureau based on my experience with them.

She was clear in providing advice and guidance on what I needed to do, and what documentation I was required to provide – this was extremely valuable, as it ensured I could provide everything in a timely way.

We were in a hugely stressful situation and were devasted about the sale of our house falling through at exchange point with local estate agents. Dorothy was so pragmatic and sensible that it took the emotion out of the situation and we were able to make decisions that would benefit our situation in the short term as well as the long term of accepting a below market value figure. The house has now resold swiftly and we received a generous share of the sale price!

If you are reading HBB reviews then I can say from my own personal experience you have come to a reputable company. I can’t praise Kim my buyer enough for all her hep in this process. Kim was up front and very professional from the very first phone call to the last. She made me always feel at complete ease. I was apprehensive but Kim listened carefully and made this whole selling process go smooth. She never rushed me with anything I had to ask her no matter how big or small. Phone calls and e mails always answered promptly by Kim.

Ideal for a quick sale or even for a very frustrating one, they take much of the confusion out of selling a property


Due to delay in extending the Leasehold from the Managing Agents of the flat. The whole transaction became very drawn out and frustrating. Instead of a few weeks it took six months. No normal buyer would have been able to wait so long. But HBB kept me informed and shared my frustration. Their communication with me was always informative and reassuring. Now we are finally there I wouldn’t hesitate to use HBB again. Ideal for a quick sale or even for a very frustrating one, they take much of the confusion out of selling a property.

Kerry, Birmingham, 9th April 2019

The sale process was faultless

1) My Dad was becoming increasingly frail at the time an opportunity arose to buy an assisted housing apartment in his preferred locality. The family needed to move quickly. HBB was recommended to me by an independent on line advisor specialising in home buying companies. I was advised to contact Dorothy for an initial quotation.

We were made an initial offer within a few hours and an acceptable final offer in less than a week. From thereon the sale process was faultless. I was kept informed at all stages by phone,post and e mail. We were not at any point put under pressure to complete under duress. There were no last minute changes to the agreed offer.

The identity checks were a bit long winded but understandable.
I do not hesitate to recommend HBB to anyone who needs to sell quickly with minimal hassle.Without the speedy and friendly efforts of Dorothy and her colleagues, I very much doubt that my Dad would now be in his safe and comfortable environment.

2) I dealt with Dorothy. She was professional, helpful and friendly throughout and was very accommodating when we needed to move the preferred move/completion date on by several weeks.

Once I had accepted their offer which obviously was lower than market value, things progressed quickly and smoothly and there was very little I needed to do. They arranged it all, solicitor, surveyor etc. and at no point did they lower their original offer.
I dealt with Dorothy who was always very pleasant and friendly and readily available to answer any questions. She kept me informed all along the way and was happy to change the completion date when I needed a little more time to move.

Reliable, dependable, proficient and professional

Great service, would definitely recommend HBB to others looking to sell the property quickly. They were reliable, dependable, proficient and professional. The property would have sold a lot sooner if it wasn’t for delays caused by the local authority in providing the requested sales pack, otherwise a very quick, efficient service and a transparent sales process provided by HBB. Kim from HBB was exceptionally professional, patient, and supportive through out the whole sales process. Providing regular updates, chasing up third parties, answering queries and was able to reassure my concerns by addressing them promptly. The solicitor I requested to be appointed to me was also very professional, independent and quick at processing the paperwork to ensure a rapid transaction considering my financial circumstances. The solicitor was also experienced enough to offer guidance and answer numerous questions I had. As a general note, I would recommend to anyone looking to sell their property quickly to also conduct their own independent valuations and surveys to ensure best offer is received which is consistent with current market value and to prevent possibility of potential under valuation. Finally, I’d like say that I am relieved the property has been sold, which means I can move forward and pursue my dream job at a new location. Out of the many “quick cash buyer” companies out their, I trust and would recommend HBB to others looking to sell the property quickly, based on my own personal experience and research (due diligence) conducted before approaching them. A big thank you to Kim and her colleagues at HBB for a great service.

Take a short cut and eliminate those companies who prey on the vulnerable

My property had become ‘unsellable’ due to a solicitor losing a deed of variation and I looked at cash buyers as bank and building societies would not lend against an indemnity policy. I signed a contract with an online home buying company who basically told me everything I wanted to hear. It soon became apparent that something was very wrong. Paul and Mike from HBB went above and beyond the call of duty to help me. They recommended a solictor who was clearly genuine and we talked things through. Paul replied to my questions straight away, always staying calm and positive, recognising the stress I was under. Mike stepped in when Paul was away. He easily handled what was a very difficult situation for me with a professional and calm approach. 

Google ‘house buying companies’ – there are a lot of them out there – its a minefield. But if you want to be treated fairly by genuine people who know what they are doing, who understand the legals, who care about their clients then talk to HBB. Take a short cut and eliminate those companies who prey on the vulnerable. HBB won’t sign you into contracts until you exchange, the staff are real and the office is real. Make it easy for yourself.

To end, all I can say is a very big thank you.

Good and professional

HBB were good and professional, Kim was very easy to deal with ,helpful and made the process less scary . My own sale did not go through as quickly as first estimates due to some of the legal hoops we had to jump through ,and I think my own particular case being a joint poa sale was a learning curve for all of us . I do think some of the repeated security checks are unnecessary , as if the property is registered to you and satisfactory photo I’d of the same name is given and the money is going to accounts in the names of the registered owners , and in addItion you have been met at the property 3/4 times by different agents , representatives of HBB throughout the process. I felt the last hoops we had to jump through with phone calls etc before completion were unnecessary and annoying , especially when the circumstances of my sale and the limitations we faced had been explained at the start. Overall though a genuine company and everyone is polite and professional, although I wished I had used my own lawyer as I felt the ones provided were slow , didn’t updates me ,and not really acting on my side more on the side of the buyers and were part of the reason for so much hoop jumping as we neared completion. Whereas my own. Lawyer. Would have acted more for me and because they already know me and Have acted for me before would have trusted my integrity more , so if I were ever to deal with HBB again I would use my own lawyer, as I think it would help the process to be smoother.

Timely and efficient

I have found that Dorothy Barker at The House Buying Bureau is the most professional of all the house buying staff that I have ever spoken to. Your company and Dorothy specifically has a reputation of being honest with a straightforward approach to buying houses, which doesn’t change from the point where the deal is agreed. I have really appreciated this as it has helped me to feel relaxed and certain that the sale would go through. 
Dorothy has kept in contact with me throughout the process, which has been timely and efficient. I am so pleased that I found your company and the recommendation that I had from the TheAdvisory via Gavin Brazg proved so right. You are honest and trustworthy in all your dealings and you made my house purchase easy with excellent service throughout. Thank you !!

Very happy I picked up the phone and called HBB

HBB were very patient,understanding and kept in touch. Having got to point of exchange with them, a private buyer then came along,that subsequently fell through and HBB were still happy to deal with us again,giving us a quick sale.
The amount we received for the house was less than we had hoped for but after a period of time with no viewers or proper interest through local agents, practicality won over emotion.There is no getting away from a value provided by an independent surveyor from RICS done through HBB.HBB provided guarenteed money in the bank, which meant we were able to pay outstanding care home fees.
Our dealings were almost 100% with Dorothy, who I found to be chatty and friendly. Her approach was very flexible when we needed to change dates of various stages of the process. In Dorothy’s absense I had occasion to speak to Kim who was also helpful.
I can honestly say that by using HBB we were able to have closure on what can only be described as an extended period of stress and worry in trying to achieve a sale. 
We used one of lawyers recommended by HBB, she was great, local solicitors could learn a lot from her approach to customer service, I was so impressed I told her so.
Very happy I picked up the phone and called HBB.

She was extremely supportive and thoughtful at all time understanding that our family was under a stressful period of transition.Thank you so much for helping us with the sale of our house.

Professionalism and real support

I want to thank everyone at HBB but especially Kim who helped me get through what was a difficult process and a stressful time, with professionalism and real support. 
No one wants to be in the position where you are in financial difficulties and stuck between a rock and a hard place, I found too many of the companies offering quick sale services were not what they said they were and did not have an ounce of moral standards between them. I was recommended House Buyer Bureau as people who wouldn’t lie first and then harass you into signing something you shouldn’t.
HBB treated me with respect and did what they said they could, when they said they would. I could not recommend them more highly.

Mr Ruell, Nafferton, 16 Feb 2018

Fair price in exchange for a quick sale

Our house sale was handled very well from start to finish. The purchase price was lower than hoped but it was a fair price in exchange for a quick sale, and the valuation process was very transparent. 
It is all about managing expectations – due to a family bereavement we wanted to move quickly to be closer to family and House Buyer Bureau enabled us to do that. 
We approached a couple of different companies offering (or claiming to offer) a similar service and had awful experiences, including very low offers, “bully boy” type tactics and badgering to a point bordering on harassment.
House Buyer Bureau was different from the outset. We dealt with the same person throughout the entire process, there was no pressure, they were contactable and proactive in responding or gathering information, they always had time to explain or discuss any information or queries raised, they worked around us at every stage, they were very quick and professional and they achieved each milestone in the process on or before the date they were aiming for.
The service provided by Kim at House Buyer Bureau was second to none, the service provided by their solicitor was very good and the surveyor and ID people were very professional and accommodating.

You were incredible……thank you

My Uncle, who was the appointed Executor of my late Mother’s Estate saw an ad for House B Bureau in the Leicester Mercury and decide to call to see if the company could assist in the sale of our property. I reside in the United States… my Mother’s house had not sold and I was a little skeptical at first, but was also willing to give this avenue of sale a try. I was entirely reliant on email communications etc and I have to say thanks to your team member Dorothy Barker the entire process was efficient, professional and extremely well executed. We encountered a few stumbling blocks along the way on our end.  Legal issues that need clarity and throughout the entire process Dorothy made the sale her priority, fantastic customer service, she was very well informed, extremely patient and always responded to my inquiries for updates within an hour if not 24 hours……. I was equally impressed that the resale uplift processes went ahead very quickly and additional monies yielded from that sale definitely exceeded my expectations. Sale closed and funds transferred… Dorothy……. you were incredible……… thank you.

Inherited a flat over 400 miles away

Two years ago I inherited a flat which was over 400 miles from where I actually live and this was proving to be unworkable and impractical. Trying to organise local agents for marketing the property, for either sale or letting, became a headache. So after seeing an advertisement for the House Buyer Bureau I tentatively contacted them. (At the time I thought “nothing ventured nothing gained”). I am so glad that I did. My first point of contact was Rebecca Tait and from early on I felt completely confident that I was doing the right thing by approaching HBB. Rebecca was extremely pleasant and helpful as were the other staff members, Dorothy and Ros, who I also spoke to on several occasions throughout the purchasing process. Everything from start to finish was explained clearly and I am very impressed by their help, efficiency and professionalism. I want to thank all the staff sincerely and I would have no hesitation in recommending the House Buyer Bureau to others.

When we contacted HBB the first person we spoke to was Dorothy Barker , and what a joy she was to talk to , everything was done through her and always on time and with a very positive attitude , from start to finish everything was done on time , we needed an extension to our changeover date as our new property was not ready , and even after every thing had been signed , even this was no trouble for this company .
I would recommend HBB to anyone without a shadow of doubt , once again , thankyou and well done

The service was excellent, it was very very quick, I found that if I put it on for sale with an estate agent it would take too long and a flat came up that I really wanted. There was another advert in the newspaper but your advert looked very professional especially since you have been in the business for a lot of years I was worried about other companies not paying me the money. Everyone I spoke to was helpful. I’m really settled in my new flat and so glad I decided to move.

We where very pleased with the service from this firm. Dorothy who was handling our sale kept us informed every step of the way. We used the House Buyer Bureau`s own solicitor who was very efficent. Both Dorothy and their solicitor informed us that we wouldnt get the true market value, but we where happy with this as it was a quick sale with no extra costs. Having never sold a house this way before we where a bit apprehensive not knowing who we where dealing with, but reassurance came with Fiona who called at our home to meet us face to face. We should like to thank Chris too for his help.

With illness in the family I was unable to get to the property and needed to sell quickly. From my first phone call I was treated with the utmost respect by Rebecca Tait. I provided survey and engineers reports upfront and HBB came back with an acceptable offer within days. Rebeccca continued to keep me informed, every phone call and email was answered straight away. She understood the stress involved in my situation and went out of her way to make the process run as smoothly as possible. At no time was I ever mislead and the company delivered as they promised. I needed to complete quickly and this was done, I only wish I had used HBB’s solicitors as mine was the only person that slowed the process down a little.

The sale took around 3 weeks it could have been quicker but that was our timescales. The only downsize was George Osborne making changes to stamp duty which had an effect on our sale.

Rebecca Tait handled the sale of my house efficiently and I found her friendly and helpful as were all the people I spoke to at the HBB.

This is the 2nd time i have used HBB and Rebecca was excellent in her handling of my queries and chasing up anything that i was concerned about as i needed to move my property on so that i could invest the money i was paying into this mortgage elsewhere.

The only down side of this is the new retention of £500 at completion to check the keys have been left and the property is in good order. Advising that the balance would be with me in 7 days was incorrect and has arrived today 2 weeks later.

To continue their professional record in my opinion this either needs to be speeded up to meet the 7 days or that period needs to be increased to 14 days so that you meet your own target.

And so it turned out. Right from the start I was impressed by the professionalism shown by HBB and in particular by Rebecca Tait who handled my sale from beginning to end. It was always a pleasure to talk to Rebecca, with her bright, bubbly and friendly manner on the telephone. She kept me fully informed and updated at each stage of the process. Thank you Rebecca.

Stuart and Linda, Leeds

The sale was handled in a very satisfactory way by HBB, and a very unpleasant situation avoided in which our nephew was due to be evicted from his home due to mortgage arrears after he had lost his job and been unable to find work. Due to severe depression he could not handle the problem, so when we found out what had happened we contacted the solicitor of his mortgage provider and they agreed to hold off the re-possession if the house could be sold in a reasonable time to pay off arrears and costs.
At that, we contacted HBB, and Dorothy Barker took control of the situation.
We are full of praise for Dorothy in the way that she dealt with the task. Her patience, understanding and professionalism was unmatchable. Due to her, our nephews house has been sold, all debts paid off, he now has money in the bank and is living in rented accommodation and is looking for work again. Also, following his old house being re-sold for a good price he will receive a substantial extra sum of money.
Thank you, Dorothy. We would recommend HBB to anyone needing to sell a property quickly.

I was very impressed by the smooth transition of the sale of my property and the excellent level of service received from House Buyer Bureau. Dorothy was extremely helpful and talked me through each stage of the process, maintaining regular contact and answering any questions along the way. This really helped in quashing what could have been a stressful experience.

Andrew, Lower Earley

Without the help of Chris Hodgkinson & the team @ HBB solutions we would not now be enjoying our move to Wales.

 

Stress levels were of the scale when our buyer pulled out with barely a week left to completion!

 

Ok we lost some money as a result but to also lose the new property & have to start the process of selling all over again + losing deposits & incurring fees would have been hard to take.

 

Thanks to all for making our dream move possible in such a short time.

 

We would recommend HBB Solutions for cutting through a lot of red tape & for lowering my blood pressure

 

Regards

The sale of the property was incredibly smooth & stress free. We were made fully aware of every part of the process throughout in ‘jargon-free’ language! Any queries we had were answered promptly & everything happened exactly as we were told it would happen.

We dealt directly with Rebeeca Tait who we would recommend to everyone- very, very thorough when explaining things & was easy to get hold of should we have any questions.

If, for any reason she was unable to answer the call straight away, she would always, always return the call- which was great.

The level of service has been excellent, without a doubt. Will not hesitate to recommend to everyone. Thank you Rebecca!

We were very pleased with the way Dorothy handled the sale; she was prompt, courteous and kept us updated with proceedings. The only aspect that we found a little wearisome was the exhaustive identification process but, sadly, I suppose it’s a sign of the times we live in. Indeed, only yesterday it was reported that there were 32,000 cases of identity fraud in the first three months of this year alone.

As the eldest of four sons and executor of our mother’s will I was responsible for selling her house. However, as I live some distance away one of my brothers much nearer the property was also involved. Throughout the process HBB kept in touch with both of us (often twice a week) to let us know what was happening. The sale has gone through successfully and I would recommend HBB to anybody wishing to sell but having difficulty through the normal estate agent channels. Both my brother and I feel that Dorothy was particularly helpful. Not only that but what a supportive manner, and pleasant telephone voice she has. Thank you Dorothy.

My first contact with HBB was with Dorothy Barker who guided me magnificently throughout the process. She must be one of the most patient people I have known. I must have been a pain at times worrying about every next step but was constantly reassured and guided by Dorothy throughout. HBB are very upfront in telling you how much you are likely to get after a visit from two local estate agents and possible adjustment after a valuation by a chartered surveyor.
Obviously you will not get full market value but this is made clear from the outset. I was pleased to be able to make a quick sale and not be responsible for the house as I move into a retirement bungalow. HBB are genuine cash buyers. Some that claim to be are not. I thoroughly recommend them.

From the first time I contacted the House Buyer Bureau I knew I had made the correct choice. All the questions I had were answered promptly and personally and all aspects of the sale process were explained fully before anything went ahead.
The person I dealt with, Dorothy Barker, was very professional in all aspects of the process and went to great lengths to make the sale a very easy transaction.
Thank you HBB and especially Dorothy, you made a very trying situation a lot easier.

When the sale of my flat fell through at the last minute I contacted House Buyer Bureau and was very impressed with their service. I was offered a fair price in the circumstances and Dorothy clearly explained to me how the price was arrived at. The money was in my account within 2 weeks and a huge worry taken off my mind! I would highly recommend HBB to anyone in a similar position. Aside from their professional expertise, they have a friendly and sensitive approach to clients. Thanks again to Dorothy and the team!

Having been let down by another property buying company. Dorothy was a breath of fresh air. From the outset the process was clearly laid out and followed. Prices offered are well below the market rate and will not suit everyone, but if you need a quick sale and can accept the lower price, you can’t go wrong with the House Buyer Bureau.

I approached the HBB on May 5th regarding the sale of one of our buy to let properties, I explained that there were tenants in the property. It took no time at all for valuation and survey to be carried out, and after we had accepted what we consider was a very fair price the sale was completed and the money in our account by June 20th, even the Solicitors fees were paid by the House Buyer Bureau.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dorothy, who handled the sale. Whenever she said she would phone me back, she kept her word. She was very professional and friendly and I would certainly recommend HBB to anyone who would like a quick and easy sale.

We sold our house to HBB and overall were very satisfied with the result. We had both retired in February and our plan was to sell the house and go travelling for the next few years in our camper van. We had the house on the market for 3 years with no luck. Eventually we decided to sell to a house buying company.
The service we received was excellent. From the first call to the last. Dorothy Barker who dealt with us was efficient and helpful all the way.
Towards the end of the transaction we hit a couple of hurdles but Dorothy went all out to sort this for us. Even on the day of completion things went a little astray but Dorothy stepped up and made it all happen. We were confident enough to set off on our travels and leave the rest to her and the solicitor.

We received our money after the mortgage was paid off and were able to relax and enjoy our new life.

The property sale was handled from the outset and throughout in quite a relaxed and professional manner by Dorothy, the initial call back was fully informative and the only contact calls were related to the progress of the purchase with no pressure selling or nuisance calls whatsoever.
The initial 2 surveys were performed quickly one of which seemed surprisingly low but the other matched my own agents valuation. The offer price was then somewhat lower than I had expected and initially intended to settle for but due to unexpected redundancy and urgent relocation it was my decision to go ahead with the purchase price offered.
The price negotiation was handled by Mike who was my contact while Dorothy was on holiday.
The surveyor appointed arrived quickly soon after and the offer price agreed was confirmed.
My initial reservations of using the appointed licensed conveyancers were, at the end of the purchase, dispelled as it was handled quickly without any hassle or issues.

We approached the House Buyers Bureau in August as we were selling our property and we had seen the M.D on the national news stating he would be very happy when these types of businesses were regulated by the OFT so it would stop firms like his getting a bad press. This immediately made us feel like putting our trust them.
We spoke to Dorothy on our initial call. She immediately put us at ease. She has been the person who has dealt with us all the way along and how, courteous, professional and friendly she has been. It was like conversing with your best friend she made you feel so at ease. On one occasion we had to speak to Sara and again she was as equally personable, friendly and professional as Dorothy.
