If you're selling to pay for care

Firstly, and most importantly, there’s no need to worry about covering the costs of care for you or a loved one. If you do need to sell your home to pay for care, you can move into a care home and the fees will be deducted from the sale of your home at a later date. Secondly, your property will have no onward chain so this simplifies the sales process and also will make your property attractive to potential buyers as moving timescales for them will be flexible.

Why choose Church Robinson to sell your home to pay for care?

Our sales team at Church Robinson are very experienced in this particular field and understand all the emotional and legal complications that can arise.

We'll manage the sale of your home every step of the way and regularly update you and/or any chosen relatives.  It's our job to get the best price for your home and make sure the sale completes.

We'll meet with you and/or your relatives helping you with the sale of your home. We will show you examples of recently sold properties in the local area to give you an idea of a realistic sales price.

When you're moving to a care home it’s important to de-clutter. This is best done before you sell your home as we'll be able to take better photographs to enhance your home and, of course, this will give a sense of space at viewings. We can help you with tips on staging that will make your home more attractive to potential buyers and also put you in touch with local charities that can assist you with your clearance needs.
