Sitting tenants and selling houses
Thunderpants · 12/09/2007 16:18
Does anyone know what the deal is when selling a house with a sitting tenant? I have a tenant who's been great for the past 5 years, but I need to sell the house. I'm so loathe to turn her out of the house, but not sure whether you get a lot less for your property if there's someone in it. does anyone have any experience in this area? thanks.

If you sell it as a buy to let investment ie she stays in despite the sale, you might get more for it because the house has been let to a good tenant.
If you are selling it on the basis it will be empty on completion, will she be co-operative when the agents bring people round for viewings? For example, will she be there, or leave it tidy? It might be hard to market with her in there.
