We offer resales across the UK & have estate and letting agency franchise resale opportunities in desirable locations with good rental demand. If you are interested in a location near to you & cannot see one available, then please contact us in order to find out whether we have any opportunities that we are marketing discreetly or that are about to come to market. If there isn’t a resale available, we have made a large number of acquisitions from outside the group & are able to identify & purchase well-established businesses & integrate them into the Belvoir Group.

Franchisees (and more importantly their customers) will look for franchises with a strong brand recognition and reputation in the marketplace. The Belvoir Group has a number of strong, well-established brands that have strong brand recognition & a good reputation

We offer industry-leading support & training from our intensive 4-week initial training to the ongoing support & business development we offer to each of our franchisees every step along the way.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions from our resale customers

We currently have over 30 franchise opportunities. There are a number of businesses that you won’t see on this page because we have been invited to market them discreetly. If you would like to learn more about ‘off market’ opportunities, please contact us

The group offers a range of training & support both in advance of your taking over the business and on an ongoing basis. In order to take on a business, our franchisees go through an intensive, four-week training programme. They are given further support in the development of their business.

There are two elements to this. Belvoir was established in 1995. We are one of the largest property groups in the UK, supporting a network of over 300 offices across six distinct brands.

Each franchise office was established at a different time. You will find more information by clicking on the individual franchise resale listing. If you would like more detail about a franchise resale, please make an enquiry. Further & more detailed information about a franchise resale opportunity can be provided once a non-disclosure agreement has been signed

A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is used to protect confidential information that is shared during the sale and purchase of a business. It is important to ensure that the details of the sale remain private, to protect the interests of both the buyer and seller. The NDA also ensures that the buyer cannot use the information to gain an unfair advantage or benefit from the transaction. By signing an NDA, both parties agree to keep the details of the sale confidential.

We have franchise opportunities in the UK with offices in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland.

This will depend upon your requirements. We have found that our franchisees are far more likely to succeed when they start by running an established business. We help them to find an established business (which we either help them to purchase from outside the group or which is one of the resale opportunities listed above). The investment will depend upon the size & profitability of the business that you would like to run

As we provide our new franchisees with established businesses, they will typically be buying a business that is generating income and profit. The rate of this return on investment over time will depend upon the level of effort & business acumen of the franchisee, however

Yes. You will be required to bring some of your own capital into the business purchase but we have excellent relations with a number of banks & financial institutions that are happy to lend in support of franchise businesses that support our model

The support we offer is comprehensive & it ranges from providing you with your own business development manager, to legal support, to IT & marketing support, finance & assistance for acquisitions, audit & compliance support & ongoing training. It is provided throughout your franchise ownership.
