Beware Property Cash Buying Companies

Introduction to Property Cash Buying Companies

Property cash buying companies have been around for a little over ten years.  It is still a relatively new industry and it remains unregulated.  As with most industries there is a mixed bag of participants ranging from the genuine professional companies to the rogue operators.  A genuine property cash purchasing company will provide a guaranteed property purchase within mutually agreed timescales.  The purchase should be hassle free, stress free and minimise inconvenience to the vendor.  The agreed timescales may vary from just a few days to several months depending on the vendors requirements.
