How does the quick house sales process work?
If you’re selling inherited property and you’d like a quick house sale, you’ll likely want to understand how the process works before making a commitment. It’s important to keep yourself as informed as possible, so you can ensure you’re making the right decision for your circumstances.
Whilst every situation is different, the quick house sales process when you’ve inherited a property usually follows these steps:
1. First, you need to ensure you want to sell your property. When you’ve inherited a new home, you’ll need to decide whether you want to sell your main residence or the home you’ve inherited. There may also be other legal implications such as inheritance tax to work through, so it’s crucial that you conduct thorough research before making a commitment.
2. Once you’ve made your decision, you can make an official enquiry by calling our expert team on 0800 652 8612, or by clicking the ‘Make me an offer’ button. Within working hours, our helpful team will contact you within five minutes of your initial enquiry. It’s best to give us as much information as possible, so we can provide an accurate offer.
3. When we contact you, our team will ask you a series of questions relating to your home and the area in which you live. An initial offer will then be provided depending on factors such as the current property market and your property’s worth, although this may change after our assessment has been carried out.
4. After the offer has been made, you’ll need to decide whether you want to go ahead. If you feel you need more time to think about your decision, we will be happy to contact you again at a later date.
5. Once your offer has been accepted, we’ll carry out an in-depth assessment into your home, including the area you live in, the details of your property and the current property market. After conducting this research, we will be able to provide a fair, final offer for your home.
6. If you’d like to accept our final offer, we will start the quick house sales process. We’ll handle the legal fees and the majority of the paperwork, but there will be some documentation you need to complete to guarantee the sale.
7. Finally, we’ll take ownership of your home and transfer the funds to you, enabling you to move on quickly after inheriting your new property.
More information about the quick house sales process can be found on our ‘How It Works’ page.
Once we’ve purchased your property, we’ll source prospective buyers for your home. However, this is not something you need to worry about, as your sale will be completed before this stage.
What are the advantages of a quick house sale when you've inherited property?
If you’re due to inherit property, you may want to sell your main residence so you can move into your new home.
However, selling your home is one of the most stressful experiences that an individual can go through – particularly if you’ve recently lost a close family member or friend. When selling inheritance property through a conventional estate agent, the sales process can take months (or in some cases years), with lots of documentation and legal paperwork to work through.
However, when you use a quick house sale company like webuyanyhouse.co.uk to sell an inherited house, the service provided is as hassle-free as possible. We’ll handle all the paperwork and legal aspects of the sale, ensuring you can focus on more pressing matters. There’s no need to worry about finding a prospective buyer for your existing home, as this aspect is something that our expert team will arrange for you.
If you’re tied into an existing mortgage, you may be concerned about the hassle of cancelling it. The good news is that as a reputable property buying company, we can help you regardless of your situation – even if you have an existing mortgage.
Some people also find that they want to sell the home they’ve inherited, staying in their main residence instead. This is another situation we can help with. Selling an inherited home can also help you to free up funds that may need to be paid if you are subject to inheritance tax.

Frequently asked questions on inheriting property
Inheriting a new home can be overwhelming, particularly when you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one. To make the process as easy as possible, our property specialists have answered the most important questions you may have here.
Yes, you can sell an inherited house to webuyanyhouse.co.uk.
Whilst some people prefer to sell their existing home and move into their inherited property, others choose to sell inherited property instead.
The answer to this question will depend largely on the situation itself. In most cases, inheritance tax is not applicable if the total cost of the inherited assets is below the £325,000 threshold. However, the estate’s value may still need to be reported, even if it falls below this amount.
If you are unsure, please use our Inheritance Tax Calculator to work out how much tax you may have to pay.
As well as paying inheritance tax, you may also need to complete several legal/administrative tasks before selling your inheritance property. This includes factors such as probate, will readings and clearing any outstanding debts and obligations.
However, we will help you as much as possible throughout the process.
Unlike the traditional property selling process, there is no need to repair or renovate your property when conducting a quick house sale. We will purchase your property in its current condition, so this is not something you need to worry about.
