- Do they clearly display their office address on their website?
- What is their company registration number and can you check them out via companies house? Do they have charges registered on the company to prove their trading history and what is there current assets from their latest year's accounts. It's paramount to check that the company is not dormant, in liquidation or dissolved.
- Who are the directors? Google their name and check them out on social media.

- Do they have social media? Check their activity on Facebook and Twitter. Personally I'd like to know that they are investing time and money promoting their company.
- Search Google for the company name. If our potential customers Google 'Open Property Group' there is a wealth of information available about our company.
- Can you speak to a previous customer? Why not ask.
- Do they have online reviews? If so read as many as possible.
- Ask for a recent bank statement to prove that they have the capital required to buy your house- If they advise that this is confidential, then request that this is sent to your solicitor.
We would request that the company confirms in writing that they are not estate agents or a broker ie that they will not try to seek a buyer for your house when you were led to believe that they are direct house buyers.
Our ambition is to prove to all of our customers that we are Open, Honest and Reliable and that we are professional buyers of property.
Sell your house fast to a reputable buyer
It's important to be well informed when choosing a company to buy your house. There are numerous companies who advertise online to buy property fast. In our opinion there are only a handful who are genuine, professional buyers such as Open Property Group.
Choose the best buyer for your house
It's important to think about your requirements when choosing a company to buy your property. Think about the following when seriously considering an offer too:
- When do you want to move? Open Property Group give our customers flexibility and you can choose a moving date which suits you. We have a streamlined structure which enables us to work to your timetable.
- Are there any contracts or option agreements? If there are I would suggest walking away.
- Are there any fees payable by you? Ask for reassurance that the company will pay all of your legal fees, regardless of whether or not the house sale proceeds to completion.
- Do you want to sell your house as seen? If so, ask whether you can leave items or furniture at the property on completion. Open Property Group will buy your house in any condition and with any problem; warts and all.
