Empty Property Matchmaker Scheme

Are you thinking of selling your property in Ealing?  Are you looking to buy a property in Ealing?

Ealing Council have launched a new website to help owners of empty properties in Ealing to sell their property.

The Empty Property Matchmaker Scheme has been devised to bring together the owners of empty properties in Ealing and private individuals, investors and developers who want to purchase empty properties in the borough.

Why sell or buy through the Matchmaker website?

Benefits:

  • No fees. Free service for seller/buyer
  • Properties for sale are viewed on a secure council webpage
  • Bypasses estate agent
  • Reduces cost to sellers as no need to renovate before selling
  • Reduces cost to buyer due to any disrepair
  • Simple process for seller/buyer
  • Ready buyers vetted for finance
  • Choice to pursue offers or not

For the seller, it is just like placing your property with an estate agent on the high street but without the fees.

To preserve the security of the property, only a picture, a brief description of the property and the seller's details will appear on the website. Prospective buyers will use a password to access the website and view the properties for sale. Those interested in more information will contact the seller and the negotiations will start between them. The council will not be part of the negotiation process.
