Assisted Voluntary Sale

Are you unable to manage your mortgage payments? Is your mortgage becoming unsustainable? Are you at risk of losing your home? Assisted Voluntary Sales and Sell My House Fast can stop the threat of repossession becoming reality!

Assisted Voluntary Sale

Assisted Voluntary SaleVoluntary/assisted voluntary sale (AVS) schemes allow homeowners with unsustainable arrears on their mortgages prevent repossession and exit homeownership in a planned manner by lenders

  • Giving them time to sell (varying between lenders, this is typically a period of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months)
  • Halting repossession action and allowing borrowers to make reduced (concessionary) mortgage payments while they are actively attempting to sell their properties
  • Covering/reimbursing solicitor/estate agent’s fees
  • Enabling the services of asset managers to act as ‘proxy vendors’ and assist in progressing sales
  • Helping borrowers secure alternative accommodation within the private rented sector by providing rent deposits/advances

It should, however, be noted that:

  • Assisted voluntary sales schemes are provided at lenders’ discretion – entitlement to help is by no means automatic
  • Not all lenders offer clearly defined AVS schemes

You will therefore need to discuss what, if any, level of assistance is available with your lender. If you are considering avoiding repossession through an assisted voluntary sales scheme, you should also seek free independent advice from independent advice agencies including, for example, Shelter, your local Citizens Advice and the housing options service provided by your local authority.

To help you consider your options, we have prepared a Homeowners’ Guide to Exiting Home Ownership Through Voluntary/Assisted Voluntary Sale detailing available choices, their advantages & disadvantages, factors to consider, useful organisations and more. You can download this guide here.
