How selling to Vivo works

Why choose Vivo?

Can Vivo help me?

What is a property buying company?

We buy properties directly from you with our own money, so there’s no need for any estate agents or middlemen. This means we don’t need to find you a buyer, because we ARE your buyer. There is less hassle, no chain and a speedier sale!

How much will Vivo pay for my property?

In return for a secure house sale in 7-14 days, Vivo Property Buyers offer 85% of the estimated current market value of your property. This includes all legal fees, clearance, cleaning and refurbishment costs.

How much is my home worth?

The estimated current market value of your home is based on the property type, style, size, condition, historical information and sales data in the area.

How can Vivo buy properties so fast?

By keeping it simple. We buy with our own cash and do not depend on banks or third party investors.

The team is available 24/7 and the legal team who are on board specialise in fast house sales. It’s what we do on a daily basis and each property receives our full attention.

Selling freehold properties in 7 days is feasible, leasehold properties tend to take a little longer depending on the freeholder and managing agents.

Is the price fixed?


Unlike other fast house buyers, once you have accepted Vivo’s Formal Offer, the price is fixed and set in stone. Your sale is secure.

Note: there are 5 steps before receiving your formal offer:

1. Following receipt of your enquiry, Vivo will call you for an introduction.

2. Next, Vivo will carry out an in depth desktop valuation.

3. You will then receive the Initial Offer Package outlining the offer price, timings, what’s included in the sale as well as more information on the sale process.

4. If the Initial Offer Package is of interest, Vivo will organise and pay for an independent RICS Surveyor to visit your property and carry out a Valuation.

5. Upon receipt of the valuation report, the offer will be formalised*. Once you have accepted this Offer, the price is fixed.

*Our desktop valuations are very detailed and thorough, resulting in 96% of our Formal Offers remaining at the same level as our initial offers

When am I tied into the sale?

With Vivo Property Buyers, you are only ever tied in after you have exchanged on the sale. We do not ask you to sign any formal documents, all legal work goes via the allocated solicitors.

Once you have accepted our Formal Offer and solicitors are instructed, we are 100% committed to the purchase of your home and we hope you are equally committed to the sale to Vivo. The trust comes from both sides.

Do I have to pay anything?

No. There are no fees for you to pay at any stage when selling your house to Vivo.

Vivo pay for the RICS Valuation, Legal fees, clearance, cleaning, any decorating or refurbishment works which might be needed.

Vivo will even reimburse you for postage costs and other general administration costs related to your sale – just keep the receipts and send them over to us at any time.

When do I have to move out?

You decide when you move. Vivo will work towards your ideal timescales.

To make your move easier, we are happy for you to stay in your house for 2 – 3 weeks after receiving full funds so you can use the funds for your move and plan ahead.

Do you buy with tenants in place?

Yes we do! You don’t need to give notice to your tenants and you can keep receiving your rental income up until the day you exchange on the sale of your property.

Is there a lot of paperwork to deal with?

Honestly, there are quite a few documents to complete.

A property sale is not a simple transaction and requires qualified solicitors to carry out the conveyancing work.

Vivo offers a quick and easy sale, however you will still need to allocate some time to complete the necessary paperwork. Your solicitor and Vivo will help where possible.

To make things easier, a representative can come and visit you to assist with completing the paperwork and post back on your behalf.

Can I trust Vivo Property Buyers?

Absolutely. As committed members of the National Association of Property Buyers and The Property Ombudsman, you can rest assured that we follow a strict set of guidelines to protect you as our valued customer. Furthermore, we are the best rated fast house buyer on Trustpilot. You can see our reviews here!
