"I would like to thank you Sue for your all your hard work undertaken with our recent rent to buy. We are more than happy with the location and the property, also the owners are great to deal with and very easy to discuss conditions of the contract that both parties signed.

Also an advantage we enjoy is the fact that with prior agreement with the owners we can make small improvements to the property as we go, which adds value and makes the equity
grow therefore less deposit and increases the overall value of the property. I would definitely recommend this approach to buying your own home to any one who hasn’t
the right amount of deposit and doesn’t want the market to rise and leave them even further away from owing that first home.

Thank you we enjoy the home very much and the girls love having their own rooms.
I hope this finds you well and business is booming for you."
Brendon, Christchurch

"Our sincere gratitude & praises go out to Sue & her team for enabling us to move into our lovely new home. All we had to do was choose our home from the market & the team at Velocity did all the negotiations for us! No having to save a 30% deposit (and that would’ve taken years!), no banks to approach, no negotiations with real estate agents & no more dead-end rent! 

We highly recommend Velocity to all those people wanting to get out of the rent-trap & into their own homes, it’s not hard!
Just trust the process, we did & now we’re living in the result!"

"In 2008 my husband and I made the decision to sell our property (due to financial reasons) and to rent for a while until we decided what to do next. After a considerably long time we finally sold and moved into a rental property. Six months into this rental, we decided that we would like to get back into the property market and set about finding ways of how we could achieve this. As we are both on limited incomes, we were unable to obtain a loan from the bank, so looked at other alternatives.

After reading an article in the Press, we contacted Velocity Investment Property and arranged a meeting to discuss our options. We first met with Sue Laurie and Lisa Devries in November 09 and were pleasantly surprised that there was a possibility of reaching our goal - namely owning our own home through a rent to buy.

Sue and Lisa were awesome throughout the whole process, offering us advice and suggestions. We may not have been the easiest to deal with at times, but we got there in the end and at the end of February this year we moved into our new home.

They are two fantastic ladies and have now, hopefully, become good friends. We would have no hesitation in recommending them and their services to anyone thinking of becoming property owners via a rent to buy scheme."

"Up until now we knew very little about renting to buy a property and happened to come across Rent2Buy via the internet.  To find out more we made contact with them regarding one particular property we were interested in viewing. From the first phone call it was clearly outlined how Rent2Buy worked.

We have in the past owned and sold property, but have now been renting for the last 9 years and wanted to get back into owning our own home again.  Trying to meet the bank's criteria for a mortgage was the hard part. We went to view the Rent2Buy property and were shown around and further explained how Rent2Buy worked.  We loved the house straight away, therefore a meeting was organised to discuss the finer points.

The team at Rent2Buy have all been very friendly and professional in their dealings with us. Rent2Buy has made it possible for us to own our home again and the vendor of the house is very happy with the outcome as well. Rent2Buy has also made the process very quick and easy and we would have no hesitation in recommending them."

"Early in 2009 I was trying to sell a newly renovated house without success. The offers I received did not even cover my costs. It was suggested that a possible solution was for me to look at a lease option or rent to buy situation. At this point I was introduced to Rent to Buy Nationwide Ltd. They clearly explained the concepts involved, went over the contracts step by step and answered all my questions. They marketed the property very effectively. The brochures presented were of an excellent quality and I was kept informed of progress and of what was being done to achieve the results I wanted. The whole marketing programme was conducted in a far superior manner to that of the Real Estate Agents who had been attempting to sell the property over the previous three months. I received a suitable offer within a very short space of time. This offer was at my asking price and provided my company with a substantial, immediate, positive cashflow benefit.

Rent2Buy were appointed property managers and have been excellent in this regard. They have attended to all matters that have arisen and have made the experience a stress free one. They have been easy to contact and have provided clear statements of all transactions. I have no hesitation in recommending Rent2Buy to anyone looking at the lease option scenario."

"We are very happy and found the process quick, efficient and upfront. Their experience, track record and willingness to make our transition as easy as possible are outstanding. We enthusiastically recommend Rent2Buy."

"We have recently had to market our home and had huge concerns that in our current climate we would be faced with a huge loss.  We were introduced to the concept of Rent2Buy, and this proved invaluable.  It was an option we had not originally considered, however it proved to be one of the smartest decisions we have ever made.  Not only did we achieve a great buy price in a tough market , but the ease and level of professionalism they offered made it a dream – everything was done for you.

  • Tenants were screened and introduced to the property (the tenant/buyers in our home now are just an awesome family)
  • Constant and clear feedback given during the process gave us confidence everything was under control
  • Marketing was brilliant and open homes managed on our behalf
  • Minimal cost for the whole service just added to the attraction of marketing our home this way  
  • Deposit secured giving both parties “buy in” to the process making it real
  • Buy price set to ensure both parties benefited in the long run. 

The whole process was painless. Rent2Buy instilled a huge amount of confidence in them and they delivered – I cannot recommend them highly enough and appreciate all their help  - will do it again if the opportunity arises!"

"With very little deposit and not many prospects, we met with Rent2Buy who helped us into our beautiful, fantastic new home. Rent2Buy went over and above the call of duty, went into bat for us with the vendor and succeeded in securing our dream home for us. Through Rent2Buy we have been able to purchase a much better home than we ever could have afforded on the open market. We have told all our friends about this wonderful way to purchase property. Well done Rent2Buy."
