Sell and Rent Back Exposed
A question I am often asked by potential sellers is if we do a sell and rent back scheme.
Sell and rent back means that you sell your property, you get to stay in your property and rent it back from the new owner. This method was very popular a number of years ago however over the last couple of years this method has actually been regulated by the FCA.
So if you do want to sell your property, but instead of moving you would like to rent it back from the new owner and this is under negotiation, you need to be cautious that the actual buyer is registered with the FCA.
Is Your Buyer Regulated?
There are very few companies or individuals throughout the UK who are actually registered with the FCA for this type of business.
My company do not offer this method, we are not registered and do not operate in this way.
