House sellers in Leeds are to get a money back guarantee if they don't sell there home as part of a trial by Purple Bricks.

The money back garantee means customers they won’t pay any fees in the unlikely event that their house doesn’t sell.

With the money back guarantee, the tech-led estate agent will refund Leeds customers their full fee if they have not received a proceedable offer of at least 90 percent of their asking price, within ten months of the property going on the market.

Under the offer, customers would be refunded their £999 instruction fee plus their £300 ‘Assisted Viewing’ fee, if they also opted for Purplebricks accompanied viewings.

Mark Whincup, Territory Operator for Leeds at Purplebricks says: “We’re putting our money where our mouth is with this new Money Back Guarantee - and it’s borne out of our confidence in selling houses in Leeds and across the UK.

“Our local team knows the Leeds housing market inside out and we’re experts at getting our customers a quick sale at the right price. But now we’re giving Leeds sellers the ultimate reason to use Purplebricks and put us to the test: we’re so confident we’ll sell your house that, if we don’t, you won’t have to pay us.”

The trial has been launched in Leeds and nine other locations in the North of England.

It will last for six weeks from May 10 to June 20, 2021.
