Spring signs later life partnership with Autumna

Spring has teamed up with Autumna to offer the elderly quick, stress-free house moves

National home buying and part exchange service Spring has joined forces with Autumna to remove one of the biggest hurdles people face moving to a retirement or care property.

From May 2022, Autumna, the UK's largest and most comprehensive later-life living & elderly care directory, will offer Spring’s guaranteed sale service to prospective movers, allowing a quick, stress-free onwards move.

In as little as seven days or on a date of their choice, the sale of a home can be agreed without the risk of complex property chains collapsing or uncertainty of the open market.

Debbie Harris, CEO of Autumna, comments: “We work closely with thousands of people as they search for retirement living options. Yet, time and time again we have seen them give up their search because of the stress and struggle of trying to sell their property. It is, without question, one of the largest obstacles our clients face. Between Autumna and Spring, we’ll be able to squash that most significant hurdle and enable many more people to enjoy happy and healthy retirements in their new homes. It is a partnership that truly benefits everybody.”

The partnership builds on Spring’s track record of working with a range of leading UK retirement living developers and operators, with CEO and Founder Cormac Henderson championing the growth of the sector as vital for society.

Cormac Henderson, CEO of Spring, comments: “The UK’s later living and care sector plays a vital role both for those needing support but also wider society. However, the uncertainty and burden of selling the family home puts many people off, resulting in countless older residents living in unfit-for purpose accommodation which also has a trickle-down effect on the rest of the property market. Working with Autumna, we will be working to change this, giving people options that provide them the freedom to move on.”

With £300 million in annual home buying capacity, Spring is the UK's leading property buying powerhouse, typically making offers within 24 hours and completing as quickly as the homeowner would like with no viewings required and no risk of sales falling through. Spring can offer up to 93% of market value for properties and the service is fully inclusive of all legal and conveyancing costs.
