Selling a tenanted property

Want to sell a tenanted property? We will buy it for cash

If you are a landlord thinking of selling your property but you have a problem tenant or a current assured shorthold tenancy (AST) agreement in place making the sale difficult we can help.

We regularly buy property from landlords who want to sell quickly and hassle free.

We don’t require the tenant to leave before the property is sold to us, meaning you don’t lose valuable rental income while the sale completes.

We can buy your property in just days or weeks – or in a timescale to suit you or the tenant.

Contact us now to find out more information.

Why sell my property to House Buy Fast?

If you choose to sell your property through the traditional estate agency route you may be required to remove a problem tenant in order to attract a buyer or you may restrict your market by selling with a tenant in situ who has a history of not paying or causing issues.

At House Buy Fast we are happy to buy property with tenants in place – whether that’s because they are difficult to remove or are part way through an AST.

Other benefits when selling your property to House Buy Fast include:

  • No fee and we cover all solicitor fees
  • 100% cash buyer
  • Completed in a timescale to suit you
  • Discreet service with no viewings and no estate agent boards

Selling a property with an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement in place

We are experienced in buying properties which have tenants in situ due to AST agreements. When selling a property to us with an AST you have 2 options:

  1. Sell to us quickly and we will take on the tenant until the end of their agreement
  2. Agree a sale with us and wait until the end of the AST before completion

If you are interested in finding out more about selling a property to us with an AST please get in touch and we would be happy to talk through your options.

How much will you pay for my property?

All cash property buying companies pay under full market value. When deciding whether to sell your property to House Buy Fast or use the traditional estate agent route you should take into account all the costs associated with selling a property through the different methods, as well as the time – and hassle – associated with removing the tenant from the property.

As a guide below is a table of costs relating to selling to us and selling through the traditional estate agent route.

Frequently asked questions

Selling a tenanted property

If your situation changes and you no longer need to sell your house that’s completely fine.

Remember, we pride ourselves on making the whole process zero risk and zero fees to the seller. We’ll even cover the costs of your solicitor until that point, so there is nothing for you to worry about if your circumstances do change.

Not the answer you were looking for? Contact us and ask us directly either by email or phone.

Once we’ve agreed to buy your home, sit back and relax. Using a property buying company means that we will take care of the arduous tasks involved in selling a home.

What we will do next is instruct your solicitor to carry out the conveyancing process. In very simple terms, this is the legal transfer of the property from your ownership to ours.

Your role in the whole process should be confined to signing contracts and answering some basic inquiries about the property. It’s a very straight forward process and stress free!

Not the answer you were looking for? Contact us and ask us directly either by email or phone.

Yes you can. The only thing we’ll need to check for you is the estate agent’s contract (if there is one) so we can see whether you may have to pay them commission even if we buy directly from you, the owner.

We’re used to checking the small print so we can sort this out before a sale is agreed, so that you can take it into account financially.

Not the answer you were looking for? Contact us and ask us directly either by email or phone.

If you would like to use your own solicitor you’re more than welcome and we’ll cover the cost for you.

You also have the option to use a solicitor recommended by us. We’ll give you two or three options and the choice is entirely yours. As promised, House Buy Fast will cover the cost of any solicitors involved in the sell house fast process.

We often get asked if we’re a call centre and the answer to that is absolutely not. House Buy Fast is full of individuals that have a wealth of experience in the property industry and understand the importance of excellent customer service.

You’ll be dealing with the same individual during the whole process from your initial call right through to when we’ve purchased the property.

We’ve been industry leaders in promoting a fair deal for sellers in the property buying sector, appearing on ITV pressing the issue.

We are members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme, meaning there is a form of redress if anything goes wrong with a property buying company.

We’re also founding members of The National Association of Property Buyers which was formed in 2013 to improve standards in the quick house sale industry and helped many sellers get a fair deal.
