Mr and Mrs G sold a flat in Brighton with a sitting tenant
Mr and Mrs G approached Open Property Group in relation to selling a flat in Brighton which was let on a life tenancy to the sellers Mother. The property was initially let on a verbal agreement that the elderly tenant could stay in the property for the rest of her life. Mr and Mrs G were faced in a position where their mortgage lender requested that the mortgage was repaid, as the terms of this loan did not allow the property to be let long term.
Open Property Group valued the property within hours, and confirmed a cash offer in writing to the sellers immediately. A draft form of life tenancy was drawn up by the solicitors which in effect gave the tenant permission to remain in the property on the earlier date of; 99 years from the start of the agreement, or on the death of the tenant. A small rent was paid, and the property has now been added to the property portfolio.

The service I received from Open Property Group was very helpful and considerate of my personal circumstances. A thank you to Jason for arranging a cash advance prior to exchanging contracts, and a lump sum when we exchanged. This was a really big help. Your company is simply the best.

Efficient, friendly and fair. From sold to exchanged in less than 6 weeks using OPG. We couldn’t fault the service. A professional service that any seller should use. If we had more property we’d definitely use them again!

The open property group recently purchased a property through my agency and found them to be excellent buyers that were able to exchange contracts within one week at the agreed price. I would highly recommend this company.
Excellent customer service, amazing communication, honest and genuine company who made the process extremely easy and gave any excellent price.
We buy property directly and you won't pay any agent's fees.
