Sell A Tenanted Property in Stoke

Many people in Stoke have a buy-to-let property investment, with Stoke, Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall, Longton and Fenton full of properties available to prospective and current renters. For landlords, it is a great way to ensure you get a steady income from rent and pay off the mortgage at the same time.

However, with a buy-to-let property comes tenants, and their needs and requirements must be met and adhered to. Strict regulations are in force which ensure tenants’ rights are protected, however in recent years this has made the buy-to-let industry not as lucrative as it once was, and has made it harder to sell properties with tenants in situ.

This is because tenants have rights when the property they rent is put up for sale – rights which can make landlords’ lives difficult. At We Buy Any Home, we understand both the rights of tenants and the needs of landlords and are experienced in buying tenanted properties so we know how to handle the whole situation and leave both landlord and tenants satisfied.

If you thinking of selling your house with a tenant Stoke wide, then let We Buy Any Home offer you cash for your property and sidestep the complexities of selling with tenants via estate agents.

Selling a Buy-To-Let Property

A buy-to-let property is one that has been purchased with the intention of renting it to a tenant. There are a few additional things to keep in mind when selling a buy-to-let property…

The government has in recent years increased regulations in a bid to improve the rental sector conditions for tenants. These mean landlords are responsible for improving certain aspects of homes and complying with regulations relating to electrics and energy efficiencies amongst others. These regulations mean landlords have to continually ensure properties comply which can eat into stretched profits further.

These mean landlords are responsible for improving certain aspects of homes and complying with regulations relating to electrics and energy efficiencies amongst others. These regulations mean landlords have to continually ensure properties comply which can eat into stretched profits further.

Cladding crisis

It is now mandatory for buildings with cladding or other high-risk materials to be given a formal safety review. If you own a leasehold on a tenanted flat, you may find it very difficult to sell because the freeholder of the building may not be willing to pay for the safety review or they may charge you to complete this review. This has left many owners of flats unable to sell, facing huge costs to fix the effects or left in limbo.

Section 24 Landlord and Tenant Act

This legislation means that landlords can no longer deduct mortgage interest and other finance costs (including mortgage arrangement fees) from their rental income before tax. What does this mean for you? In simple terms this means that landlords have to pay tax on costs as well as profits, eating into any returns and making renting out your property less fruitful. This has made selling your house with a tenant Stoke more common than it was previously.

Financial Concerns

Existing landlords may fear financial concerns, and maybe due to recession or other impacts, they look to sell soon. However, the easiest route in selling a tenanted property requires finding another investor or landlord but if there are many people fearing financial concerns, then the buyer pool may be limited, resulting in a slow sale.

EWS1 Concerns

Due to the Grenfell tragedy of 2017, flats with cladding require formal safety reviews. The reviews cost money, and due to a lack of availability, the EWS1 surveys aren’t always possible to complete urgently for a quick sale. Additionally, without the EWS1 survey, lenders may give flats a zero valuation resulting in a failure to get funding for the purchase. However, at We Buy Any Home, we buy properties without the EWS1 survey in place and can also purchase tenanted properties.

Problem Tenants

One of the worst experiences a landlord can go through is having problem tenants causing damage to your property, not paying rent on time or at all and generally causing you stress and heartache. Even if you decide to sell, tenants might refuse to let prospective buyers enter the property, behave unreasonably or have left the property in such a state that no one may be willing to buy it.

Do tenanted properties sell for less?

Generally having a tenant in situ can devalue your property on the open market, especially if they are problem tenants. Avoid all this though by selling to a cash buyer and although you’ll receive 80-85% of the property value it may not differ too much versus trying to sell via an estate agent. It’s much quicker too.
