Selling A Buy-to-Let Property

Buy-to-let properties are homes that are sold to investors/landlords with the intention of renting them out to tenants. They can be sold as vacant properties, however, there are often tenants already living there.

In this case, the property can be sold with tenants in situ, and the tenants won’t be required to move out (providing there are appropriate tenancy agreements in place).

Selling A Tenanted Property in Newcastle FAQ's

If you sell your Newcastle property with tenants in situ, it’s likely that you’ll be selling to a fellow landlord/investor. Existing tenancy agreements will be honoured and transferred over to the new owner preventing any lapse in property income. Any protected tenancy deposits will be transferred too. 

Your tenant(s) will remain living at the property during/post-sale, and the new property owner will become the tenant’s new landlord when the sale completes.

Your tenant(s) will remain living at the property during/post-sale, and the new property owner will become the tenant’s new landlord when the sale completes.

Is it better to sell a house with or without tenants?

There are certainly some time-saving benefits to selling a property without tenants due to admin time involved in transferring existing contracts. However, you won’t need to worry about any of this as We Buy Any Home would manage the sale for you.

Why are houses sold with tenants?

Houses are often sold with tenants living in the property for several reasons. It could be that you have a good relationship with the tenant and don’t want to evict them, or perhaps you have problem tenants that are making life difficult for you. They may be refusing to let property viewings take place or perhaps aren’t keeping the house in a saleable condition. 

If any of these points are true, we can help sell your property with the tenants in situ – property viewings won’t be necessary, and we’ll purchase the property in any condition.

Is it easier to sell a house with tenants?

In some cases, it is easier to sell a house with tenants, as a landlord looking to purchase a buy-to-let property will be pleased to see there are already paying tenants contracted with the property. 

This can be highly advantageous to prospective investment buyers as finding tenants can be a costly and time-consuming process. As tenancy agreements are transferred to the new owner when the property is sold, they’ll have a buy-to-let property with paying tenants once the sale goes through.

How much does it cost to sell a tenanted property?

Selling your tenanted property won’t cost you a penny with We Buy Any Home. If you’re looking to sell a property with tenants in Newcastle, there will be no fees to pay, and we’ll offer you the highest guaranteed cash offer for your property.

Can I sell my tenanted property?

Absolutely, and we can help make this process as easy as possible for you. We can provide you with a no-obligation free cash offer here.

How much notice do I have to give a tenant if I want to sell my house?

In England, as per the Section 21 notice, you are required to give tenants a minimum of 2 months’ notice to vacate your property. If your tenancy agreement dictates a longer notice period, you will be required to honour this as per the agreement with your tenant(s). You’ll want to double-check any current tenancy agreements before selling your house with a tenant in Newcastle.

Can You Evict a Tenant Because You Want to Sell the Property?

If you want to evict your tenant prior to selling your property, this is possible however you’ll need an Agreed Shorthold Tenancy agreement in place, and to evict tenants you’ll need to provide them with a Section 21 notice. 

Once the Section 21 notice has expired, the property sale can complete, and the tenant will be required to leave the property.

Selling a house/property with tenants

To sell with tenants in Newcastle can be more difficult than selling a property that is vacant, however, it can easily be done with the right experience. Here at We Buy Any Home, we regularly purchase properties from homeowners that want to sell a house with tenants in Newcastle, and we have successfully brought many more complex sales to completion.

Properties can be bought in any condition, and we’ll also buy homes that come with problem tenants.

Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements

If you’re looking to sell a tenanted property in Newcastle, it’s likely that you’ll have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement in place with your existing tenants. Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements are legally binding contracts which provide tenants with exclusive use of a rental property. This agreement will hold a minimum term in which they can be assured they won’t be unnecessarily evicted.

When selling a property to another landlord, the agreement you have with the tenants will be transferred over to the new property owner. This means you won’t lose out on any rental income leading up to the completion of the sale, as your existing tenancy agreement will stand until it is transferred over to the new property owner.

It also protects your tenants as the new landlord will be required to honour the terms in the current agreement.
