If you’re looking to take advantage of an existing mortgage rate agreement, port your current mortgage terms, or you’ve just spotted your dream home and want to make a quick move, the last thing you want is to get caught up in an uncertain property chain.

Here’s where Cala’s Part Exchange service can prove invaluable.

We could act as a cash buyer for your existing home, ensuring a hassle and chain-free, smoother move into your new property. And that’s just the beginning …

Benefits of part exchange

Chain-free – we could act as a guaranteed buyer for your property, at a time that suits you.

Definite completion date – the sale and purchase would happen at the same time, with no chain.

Cost savings – there are no agent or advertising fees, Home Report or survey costs. Use our Part Exchange calculator to see how much you could save.

Fair value – we commission up to three independent valuations on your home. Once these are completed, we will make an offer of up to 100% market value for a sale within six weeks.

Speedy move – with no chain, there is less chance of delay, with a quick move into your new home as soon as it is ready. And with our Ready For You homes, you could move in as little as four weeks.

Mortgage porting – this is when you transfer your existing mortgage deal to a new property. If you have a portable mortgage, using Part Exchange could be a simple way for you to take the rate and terms of your existing mortgage with you.

Most importantly - we take the hassle away from you, leaving you to focus on the best part about moving to a new house.

Making the dream a reality

Ellyanne and Russell used our Part Exchange service to secure their move to a four-bedroom property in Chelmsford.

Ellyanne said: “I’ve got friends who sold properties around the same time as us and were still waiting for completion nearly six months later. By using part exchange, we avoided being stuck in a lengthy chain in the sale process, which can often become a huge problem should a buyer pull out along the chain. Buying new also removed the headache of competing on bids – we've seen several homes on the second-hand market go to bidders well over the asking price… we got the home we wanted, and Cala’s flexibility sped up the process and made it as smooth as possible.”
