What is Part Exchange?

An easier way to move home

How does Part Exchange work with Cala? Well, it's a service that we provide, where we could purchase your existing property to allow you to move chain-free into your new home.

The main benefits are:

• You know that you have a cash buyer for your home and your move is not at risk of problems that come with the chain.

• Your legal completion dates will be the same, with no need for bridging loans or accommodation.

• Cost savings. You will not need to pay agent fees, Home Report or survey costs.

• Time savings. No chain means less chance of delay. Once your new home is finished, you will be able to move in more quickly.


Cala’s Part Exchange valuations are free and no-obligation, so it is easy to explore whether we can help you move.

Many Cala customers make use of our Part Exchange service. It gives you the certainty of a chain-free move and you won't have any estate agent fees.
