All the costs associated with these services will be discussed and agreed before anything takes place, allowing you to control exactly how much is spent on preparing the property for market. Above all, we are here to help you with what you need.
❝ There was so much to do. I didn’t know where to start ❞
Arrange a Valuation The first step we take is to prepare a Property Valuation Appraisal. Produced by senior staff members with many years of practical valuation experience, the Appraisal will make recommendations on what we believe the market value of the property is and will detail all the information and advice that was taken into consideration to determine the proposed figure. If time is of the essence and all you want is a fast sale, we have contacts with cash buyers on the lookout for properties to purchase. You may not get full market value but you will get everything resolved quickly.
Estate Agentsâ€™ Valuation Form
Every factor we believe could affect the valuation will be diligently researched, including a detailed investigation of the local market, consultation with at least three local Estate Agents and a comprehensive comparison of similar homes for sale or recently sold in the immediate area, using online house selling sites and Land Registry data. There is a sample report at the back of this brochure or you can download one at courtofprotectionsolutions.co.uk. It will normally be sent to you in PDF format by email but we can arrange for a paper copy to be sent if preferred. There is a fixed charge for this service. This report is yours to keep whether you choose us to sell the property or not. It will include a suggested monthly rental value if selling is not a priority.

Keeping You Informed Every week we’ll send you a detailed Marketing Report that lists all the activity on the property including the number of viewings, the status of any offers and any recommendations we have to adjust the way it is being marketed. Once an offer has been accepted, our Sales Progression team will ensure it goes through to completion quickly and smoothly, keeping you informed every step of the way.

Sales Progression Report
About The Company Court of Protection Solutions is the latest addition to a group of companies originally founded in 2010 by a team of property experts with a shared belief in delivering unbeatable results and a passion for offering exceptional customer service. The sister brand, Moving Made Easy, now leads the way as an independent provider of Part Exchange and Assisted Sales services for the UK’s housebuilders. Applying this expertise to other specialist markets was a natural next step for the business and enabled the group to expand the services they are able to offer. Executor Solutions was one of the first specialist expansions, helping to sell probate properties. From helping to sell property left suddenly empty by the demise of it’s owner, to helping those no longer able to live alone and needing to sell in order to finance specialist housing or care, was a very short step. Court of Protection cases require many of the same solutions to simplify one of the hardest life changes to manage. Our dedicated teams combine expertise with sensitivity to provide bespoke solutions that fit each client’s requirements perfectly. We offer a beginning-to-end service to sell properties quickly and for the best possible price, ensuring complete customer satisfaction and the best possible outcome both for you and for your clients.
“It is my privilege to be able to assist solicitors and their clients through what can be an incredibly stressful and emotional time. The team at Court of Protection Solutions aim to make selling a home under such diﬃcult circumstances just a little easier with the unbiased, consistent advice and support they offer.” Barry Mattock, Managing Director
Our Clients We have worked with over 140 law firms and accountants across the UK, providing a tailored solution to each client to suit their requirements. On average, we sell properties in just 30 days, versus a national average of 62 days. We do this with expertise and integrity ensuring the best possible outcome for the individuals in need of support.
