Injury Or Sickness

Injury or Sickness

Expert Home Buyers - Injury or Sickness

Sudden injury or a long-term can have negative and wide-ranging effects on your situation. If you suddenly find yourself unable to work, the pressure on your finances can be unbearable.

Having to rely on incapacity benefit, it can soon become very clear that you have to take fast, effective action or you can soon lose the things you have worked hard to get.

It becomes ever harder to afford to live day-to-day, and the lack of money can add to your worries. The stress can have a further negative impact on your life and even make you sicker than before.

We can help you protect your loved ones during your period of ill health. By buying your property, we’ll allow you to free up funds – you can pay off your mortgage, take care of outstanding debts, and rent your property back from us.

You can pay your rent as far in advance as you want – some clients have paid up to 10 years in advance, so they don’t have to even think about rent for a decade.

We will sit down with you and discuss your personal circumstances, then come up with a proposal to meet your requirements. You can then rent the property from us – and still buy it back in the future when your situation improves.

Call us on 0800 093 4872 today and secure your future, no matter what your condition.
