Benefits of using We Buy Any Home to sell your flat in Sheffield

There are many benefits to using a cash house buyer to sell a flat fast in Sheffield. As we mentioned, the average flat in the steel city spends 240 days on the market. During this time, it can become very expensive to sell a flat. Not only could you be faced with paying bills, council tax and estate agents while your flat is on the market, but before it’s even listed, you might need to pay out.

For example, if your flat requires an EWS1, you could be waiting a while because there is currently a shortage of certified fire engineers. And then, once you have your EWS1 grade, you could be responsible for paying the costs of cladding remediation.

However, if you are a qualified leaseholder, you will be protected against the costs of fixing cladding. You can find out by using the government’s online tool.

When you work with We Buy Any Home, you completely remove all the costs, stress and slowness associated with a conventional sale. You don’t have to spend any of your own money with us. Not on fees. Not on cladding removal. Plus, you can complete the sale at a time that suits you. If you’re eager to move on and put your flat behind you, we can offer you a simple and easy way out.

FAQ’s for Sell Flat Fast in Sheffield

It’s no secret flats take longer to sell than houses. Recent government guidance on cladding remediation has added another obstacle for leaseholders looking to sell. Plus, many people have been put off investing in flats due to changes to buy-to-let tax relief. There is no best time to sell on the open market in 2022, and a fast sale is very unlikely on the open market. Fortunately, At We Buy Any Home, we remove all the obstacles to selling your flat fast. You can rely on us for a simple and cost-free service. Just fill in our enquiry form to get a free, no-obligation quote.

Can I sell a flat with a short lease?

This is another factor that makes it difficult to sell a flat on the open market. Buyers are typically not interested in flats with shorter leases, and mortgage lenders are reluctant to offer mortgages on leases under 80 years. Extending your lease could come at a considerable cost. We Buy Any Home, on the other hand, can guarantee you a sale for 100% cash regardless of the length of your lease.

Sell flat quickly Sheffield

We understand how hard it is to sell flats in Sheffield and that it is virtually impossible to sell flats with a poor cladding grade. If the flat you want to sell feels like a burden, don’t worry. We purchase all flats with cladding. With us, you can sell your flat fast in Sheffield and move on to the next chapter of your life. It’s easy and stress-free.

If your property has a completed EWS1 form, we can make you an offer based on your property’s grade and any itemised costs. Within 24 hours of you filling in our simple enquiry form, you’ll get a free cash offer.

Don’t have a completed EWS1 form? Not to worry. We can still buy your flat in up to 7 days, or sooner if you need. But without the EWS1 form, we will have to pay you quite a bit less than market value as we won’t know your grade. We will absolutely increase the offer should the EWS1 form be completed in the meantime, though.

When we calculate our offer, we will take into consideration the forecasted costs of any cladding removal, as well as the length of the lease and the risk associated with us buying the flat. If we sell the flat for a higher amount than expected, we will gladly offer you some of the proceeds. That’s why we offer a profit share agreement. That way you’ll get the best possible price for your flat. We can explain this in more detail when we call you after you’ve requested a quote.

How to sell your flat fast in Sheffield

In 2022, the average Sheffield flat spends 240 days on the open market, with the average asking price up 7% from last year. It’s safe to say selling a flat in Sheffield is difficult. It’s slow and potentially quite costly. However, it’s the same almost everywhere in the UK, and there are several reasons why that’s the case.

One reason is that the Covid-19 pandemic has undoubtedly made flats less popular. More people have sought homes with gardens in the last couple of years, and due to an increase in the number of people working from home, many modern flats are too small for home offices. As a result, large numbers of people are moving away from city centres since they no longer need to commute to work.

Another factor causing fewer people to buy flats is the change to tax reliefs for buy-to-let properties. This change has made investment properties less profitable, so many landlords are looking to sell or are holding off on expanding their portfolios.

The most significant reason the flat market is suffering is due to the fallout from the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire. Since then, the British government has put strict guidelines on the use of cladding in flats to ensure the material used is not combustible. Unsafe cladding must be removed, potentially at big costs to leaseholders. For many landlords, flats simply aren’t worth the investment. Also, lenders are reluctant to offer mortgages for flats when so many contain unsafe cladding. It is believed that 30,000 deals have collapsed due to this.

As a result of new regulation, before anyone can sell a flat, the government requires the completion of an External Wall System Survey (EWS1). In the survey, a chartered fire engineer will assign the property a score of A1, A2, A3, B1 or B2. A1 confirms no combustible material is present, so no work is required. The worst score, B2, indicates the property contains dangerous cladding.

Unfortunately, there is a significant backlog of EWS1 reports to be completed, causing many flat owners to wait long periods of time before they can get graded. Even after that, many of them will have to pay out large sums of money to remove the unsafe cladding from their property. Sadly, a top A1 grade is no guarantee of a sale due to the crisis in the market. Most cash house buying companies also shirk at the idea of buying a flat with cladding. But here’s where we can help.
