Help to Buy Valuations

Selling your Help to Buy property

Regardless of what your plans are, a valuation is needed you get the current value of your home. This needs to be made by a certified RICS surveyor and it is something that you need to request and pay for, then pass to Homes England.

 

When should I get the report done?

Your valuation report is valid for 3 months from the date it was produced. It is possible to get an extension for 1 month (you’ll need to talk to us again) but ideally you should aim to get the report created within a sensible time frame for you to complete the process within 90 days. Our surveyors are very used to this process so you can let us know where you’re up to when you talk to us and we’ll schedule the timings to work with your sale.
