Home Buying Service

National Property Trade (NPT) works with Richmond Villages, one of the UK’s leading retirement home developers, to provide a dependable and stress-free solution to their clients who need to sell an existing property in order to buy and move into their new retirement home.

About National Property Trade

Established in 2010, National Property Trade is a UK based residential property buyer founded by Cormac Henderson, a seasoned property investor, and Shane Miller, a property finance expert.

Having bought and sold many properties, Cormac knew how inefficient and difficult the process was, and he knew we could do better for customers who needed to sell their property quickly. Shane understood that the key to helping our clients would be NPT’s ability to access capital on demand, and created the affiliated Stonehaven Property Fund, a pool of funds that allowed NPT to become the fastest house buyers in the UK. Underpinning our success has been a team that is caring and compassionate about the reasons our customers need our service. We take great pride in our ability to deliver an efficient and easy process, allowing our customers to sell a home in any condition or situation, as quickly as they need.
