The Orion Homes Assured Sale Scheme

If you need a buyer for your property, then the Orion Homes Assured Sale Scheme could be for you as it will guarantee the price of your existing home.

We’ll put your property on the market at a realistic price to achieve a quick sale – but even if it sells for less we’ll make up any shortfall so you are not left out of pocket.  

Here’s how it works:

  1. You choose the Orion home you wish to purchase. We can sell your existing home for you using our Assured Sale Scheme – no matter what value it is.
  2. You pay your initial reservation deposit to our Sales Negotiator. Two independent valuers will then be asked to inspect your property.
  3. Orion Homes will make an offer for your property. This offer will be based on the realistic market value recommended by the two valuers and is the Guaranteed Market Value.
  4. If our offer is acceptable, the balance of the reservation deposit should be paid to our Sales Negotiator to confirm the sale. We will then instruct our agent to prepare an Energy Performance Certificate and our solicitor will be instructed to forward a draft contact to your solicitor. This contract should be exchanged conditionally within 15 working days and will be subject to the sale of your property, receipt of a mortgage offer for the purchase of your new Orion home and receipt of Local Authority and Mining Searches. Once the conditional contact has been exchanged, the agents will be instructed to begin marketing your home. The cost of the Energy Performance Certificate (£75 plus VAT) will be collected by your solicitor on legal completion.

What happens next:

Following the exchange of conditional contracts, we will begin to advertise your property over a period of 8 weeks at a very realistic price, which could be lower than the Guaranteed Market Value already offered to you.

If your property is sold for less than the Guaranteed Market Value, we will make up the difference. As soon as a buyer has been found for your property, your solicitor will be instructed to sell the property.
