Step 1 of 5

Getting to know you

From day one we work closely with you, and your family, to explore your needs and how we can help you. Everybody’s circumstances, aspirations, and requirements for the future are different, that's why every Home for Life Plan is unique.

By talking through your circumstances and reasons for wanting to move, your budget, your inheritance wishes, and your goals for the future, we’ll be able to create a plan that is bespoke for you.

When you’re ready, you’ll be matched with a personal account manager, and together you’ll build your bespoke Move Simply action plan. This outlines the next steps for your moving journey.

Step 2 of 5

Beginning the search

As part of our free Move Simply service, Homewise offers the option to...

  • Work with our nationwide network of agents to source property choices, some of which may not yet be on the open market

  • Liaise with estate agents to book viewings (and attend with you if desired)

  • Research properties and locations, conducting due diligence on the properties you are considering

We’ll help you find your perfect property, somewhere you can thrive and achieve your goals.

Step 3 of 5

Getting on the market

When you have a property to sell, getting it on the market is the first key step to moving forwards. Take advantage of our expert knowledge and experience by utilising our team to help you sell as soon as possible. We will...

  • Perform an impartial market appraisal to give you a clear understanding of a realistic price you could achieve

  • Ensure you find the right estate agent to help you secure the right buyer

  • Review the market

  • React quickly when you accept the offer

Step 4 of 5

Buying your new home

When you've found the perfect property, our expert negotiators will carry out immediate due diligence and act fast to liaise with agents, agree on an offer strategy with you, and put forward a competitive offer. With the goal of securing your next home for the best price as quickly as possible.

Once the offer has been accepted, we can finalise and confirm your Home for Life Plan price, and then Homewise moves into the purchasing stage.

At this point, you will instruct your chosen independent solicitor to advise you on the purchase of your Home for Life Plan. Our in-house Sales Progression team proactively engages with all parties in the chain, including solicitors and agents, with a view to keeping the journey on track and getting you moved into your new home as quickly as possible.

Step 5 of 5

Happy you, happy home

This is the best part when you get to enjoy your new life in your new home. Now is the time for you to unpack, put up your pictures, sort your bookcases, and relax. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy your retirement in your ideal home.

If you decide that you want to redecorate or renovate parts of your home, you can. This is your home to makeover as you wish. Structural changes, like knocking out a wall or adding a new conservatory may need planning permission so, if you are wanting to make changes to the property in the future, speak with our Property Management team who will answer any questions about the process and any works that would require prior agreement, before, during, and after your move.
