Sell a Tenanted Property in Sunderland

Landlords looking to sell a tenanted property in Sunderland face even more complications than the average home seller. This is because landlords need to ensure that tenants’ rights are protected, which can make arranging viewings and improving the home for sale difficult to arrange, and tenants could face the worry of their home being sold and what this could mean for them in the short and long term.

At We Buy Any Home, we have bought hundreds of tenanted properties so we know how to handle the whole situation and leave both landlord and tenants satisfied.

If you want a stress-free sale of your home that has tenants in situ, get a cash offer for your buy-to-let property today from We Buy Any Home, the UK’s leading cash house-buying company.

Selling a Buy-To-Let Property

Landlords are bound by regulations to ensure that tenants live in decent living conditions. Whilst this is of course right – everyone should live in a decent home – the need to adhere to more and more regulations means landlords are often seeing their profits slashed.

The Search for Space

With COVID-19 lockdowns and the rise of remote working, more and more people are looking for more inside and outside space. Whilst Sunderland has numerous suburban areas such as Carley Hill, Castletown and Marley Pots that can offer space, if you are a buy-to-let property owner in the city centre you may have noticed that tenants are eager to move which can impact the demand for rental properties in some areas.

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.

Cladding crisis

Owners of flats and apartments will know that the Grenfell Tower tragedy has resulted in most flats needing to have a safety review to establish if any safety defects are present and need to be fixed. Back in 2017, flats in the Church Street North area of Sunderland had cladding removed but many other developments may still require work. If you own a leasehold on a tenanted flat, you may find it very difficult to sell as mortgage lenders are reluctant to mortgage flats without a safety certificate which can take years to achieve.

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

Problem tenants are another issue as to why landlords may decide to sell. If there are issues with the property in terms of condition, it can make the property harder to sell. However, at We Buy Any Home, we are able to purchase properties with problem tenants and can take over any tenancy agreement.

Selling a property with tenants in Sunderland

Buy to let is when a property is bought specifically to rent it out, and historically has been a great way for landlords to give themselves a steady income stream and benefit from high yields.

Sunderland is an increasingly popular area for buy-to-let landlords. With 200,000 students, great transport links and low house prices averaging around £120,000, Sunderland is and will remain an attractive city to invest in. In the current market, the vast majority of rental properties return £500-£1000 per calendar month.

However, in recent years many landlords have faced a wide range of issues which has made buy-to-let purchases not as profitable as they once were. Many are looking to sell.

This is where We Buy Any Home can help. Our team of industry experts have vast experience in investment property sales and have purchased numerous buy-to-let properties, which means if you decide to sell and want the whole process over as quickly as possible, your property sale is in safe, knowledgeable hands.

Assured Shorthold
Tenancy Agreement

Assured tenancy agreements also make selling house with tenants in Sunderland difficult. This is because tenants under this agreement have several rights which include a right to ‘quiet enjoyment’ of the property. This makes preparing a home for sale quite difficult in several ways.

Unless the agreement specifically states otherwise, you won’t be able to conduct viewings unless you have express permission from your tenants. The tenants’ right to “Quiet Enjoyment” means you will not be able to complete any improvement work unless they grant you access.

Depending on the agreement in place, tenants may be able to stay in a property until their lease expires – which can be many months, slowing down a potential sale significantly.

Regardless of what your reason is for selling, at We Buy Any Home, we can purchase buy-to-let properties in as little as 7 working days with tenants in place, even if they are problem tenants.
