It is common for property owners to need to sell with tenants in Glasgow. This can be challenging to manage and isn’t always possible on the open market. When you choose to sell a tenanted property, you may find that the buyer pool is limited to other landlords. This reduces the chances of a quick sale if you cannot find a buyer.

Selling a Buy-To-Let Property

When choosing to sell a tenanted property, there are a few things to consider. One of those things is if it is a buy-to-let property.

Due to financial concerns, landlords may look to sell properties to reduce the financial burden and benefit from higher property values while they can. However, selling a tenanted property may mean that it can take longer to find a buyer.

Recession and Covid-19 impact

Due to financial concerns, landlords may look to sell properties to reduce the financial burden and benefit from higher property values while they can. However, selling a tenanted property may mean that it can take longer to find a buyer.

Section 24 Landlord and Tenant Act

The changes to this legislation have resulted in mortgage interest and other property finances no longer being tax-deductible. This means the financial incentive of investing in buy-to-let properties may no longer be worth it for some, and other investment opportunities may be more appealing. But, selling a property with a tenant so you can invest in something else may not be as easy.

EWS1 Concerns

Due to the Grenfell tragedy in 2017, it is mandatory for flats with cladding to be given a formal safety review. Without getting this review, you may find that potential buyers cannot get a property loan due to the risk. However, at We Buy Any Home, we purchase properties using our funds and do not need approval from third-party lenders; therefore, we are in a position to purchase your property.

Problem Tenants

Tenants who have caused issues are another reason landlords may be looking to sell. It may just not be financially motivating enough to continue. At We Buy Any Home, we’ll purchase properties with problem tenants and take over a tenancy agreement. We can also buy properties with tenants refusing to leave.

Selling a property with tenants in Glasgow

When deciding to sell a house with tenants, you are faced with two options. Selling to another landlord or selling to a regular buyer. Here is how it works:

Selling to another landlord.

When you sell the property to another landlord, the most significant benefit is that the tenants won’t need to move out. Instead, the new landlord will take over the assured shorthold tenancy agreement that you will have in place. They will honour the contract until it ends. It’s a win-win for you, the new owner and the tenant. Additionally, you won’t stand to lose out on any rental income, as you’ll still get paid until the date of the purchase.

We can also act as a new landlord for existing tenants. So if you need a buyer to sell your house with a tenant in Glasgow, we’re available.

Sell your property to a regular buyer

If you cannot find another landlord to sell your tenanted property to, you may need to look into selling to a regular buyer. This process will take longer and will mean you will have to ask the tenants to leave. Essentially, you will have to activate the Section 21 notice of your Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement as a no-fault eviction. This will mean your tenant will have to leave, and you will have to wait for the eviction notice to end before being able to sell your property. This may be a difficult choice; however, if you cannot find a landlord to take over the agreement, it may be your only option. If you need a faster process, we can purchase your property, whether you have tenants or not.

Assured Shorthold
Tenancy Agreement

Trying to sell a property with tenants can be challenging with the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement. This is because it is a legally binding contract that ensures tenants are given the right to exclusive use and enjoyment and provides a minimum term for which the tenant can stay without fear of eviction. In addition, trying to sell a property while the tenant is still in the property can be difficult when considering the following factors:

Viewings

When selling on the open market, interested buyers will need to come and view the property. This will likely disrupt your tenant and make it hard for potential buyers to view the property. However, at We Buy Any Home, we can make an offer on your property with tenants without actually viewing it in person.

Refurbishments

Another issue that may arise is getting the property refurbished to compete with other similar listings. With tenants still living there, this may not be possible and may not be worth it if the property takes longer to sell. This will mean waiting longer for the tenants to leave and then carrying out refurbishments without the additional rental income for that period.

At We Buy Any Home, we buy properties in any condition. Minor cosmetic issues are not our concern, as we base our valuations on market value. Therefore, if you don’t want to spend extra time and money on getting the property ready for sale, get in touch for a free quote.
