All About the National Association of Property Buyers

21 September 2018

Selling your property is an idea that could fill you with horror and be almost overwhelming.

Before you start worrying about sale boards, agents and endless prospective house buyers, did you know that there is an effective way to sell your house quickly? The NAPB helps sellers make an informed decision about selling their property and can ensure that the whole process is as fast and efficient as possible as the property can be bought by one of its members.

The bonuses of making the choice to sell to a professional cash buyer are many. Speed and ease are top of the list, because the buyers deal in cash and sometimes the transaction takes just days.

Importantly for sellers, this method is usually fee-free. Whilst the NAPB cannot advise sellers, it can help them to research the property market and will indicate possible benefits and disadvantages of selling to a professional cash buyer, thus enabling the seller to make an informed decision and the right choice for them.

If you are a landlord you can sell your property with your tenants in situ as selling to a professional cash buyer is both discreet and confidential so that tenants do not become alarmed and importantly, no ‘for sale’ boards are displayed at the property.

The National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB) was founded in 2013 by a group of professionals who are committed to providing the highest standards in the property buying sector. The group has worked consistently with The Property Ombudsman to form a new code of practice and guidelines to raise the standards within the industry.

Membership of NAPB is voluntary, but members must sign up to The Property Ombudsman code of practice for property buyers and this ensures that sellers are confident that they will receive a fair and transparent service – with the added bonus of access to the free and impartial advice of the Property Ombudsman if they feel they have not.

100% of the income generated by the NAPB is reinvested into marketing and promotion to help spread the word about the organisation. Sellers can approach members with confidence, knowing that they are committed to working to the highest standards. Nevertheless NAPB does recommend that legal advice is sought by sellers before committing to a sales agreement.

Since its creation, the NAPB has been featured in a number of articles in such publications as The Sunday Times, Property Reporter and Property Week and copies of these articles can be read on the NAPB website.

Getting in touch with a NAPB member could not be easier as a full list of members appears on the organisation’s website – – you can get in touch with the organisation to check out the details of a particular member and all members proudly have the NAPB logo on their stationery and website.

Selling your house needn’t fill you with dread if you contact the NAPB…
