    Selling my only BTL quick sale

    I want out of BTL as I need to put myself frst and buy a residential to live in.
    i can't borrow anywhere near enough with the new rules.
    I'm prepared to sell for a discount if another landlord wants to take over.
    ​​​​​​I can show prospective buyers that rent is paid every month
    The property is in a good area has a long lease and no charges such as ground rent or service.Has a new boiler.
    Can I do this and avoid a lengthy eviction process?
    Or could I sell at auction?
    Any advice appreciated.

    I have seen properties advertised complete with tenants, so it's obviously an option.

    My main worry as a buyer is that I'd need to know a lot more about the tenant before making an offer.

    Plus i'd need to be sure that the paperwork for the tenancy was up to scratch.

      Thanks. If I was to send it to auction do I need to prove rental income for prospective buyers? Would a new AST need to be written or can a new buyer take over on a periodic tenancy where the original AST has expired?

        Occupied on a clean AST sells for 10-20% less than vacant possession in most areas.
        Do the maths.

          Would an auction buyer prefer an ast or a rolling tenancy? The former gives both sides security but the latter means the buyer could evict the tenant quicker?
          10-20% would mean at 220k it would sell between 176-198k?

            10-20% less than vacant possession at an estate agent sale.
            10-20% less than vacant possession at an auction sale.
            Not the best of both.
            Unless you are really desperate, sell with vacant possession.

              Ok is it worth using landlord action or similar to make sure the process is done correctly ? I don't mind paying for a good service to get tenant out asap

                I've never used them or anyone similar so really couldn't say.
                I'd have a very open conversation with the tenant about your plans, be very reasonable and then take it from there.

                  May be simpler to offer the tenant £3K to move out.?

                    I've been looking at getting into letting properties as a SPV would this be possible at 19 as some lenders are picky on age as it would be under a business which i'm a director of would this make it more likely to obtain a btl mortgage. The LTV would be around 70%. If anyone could shed any light on...

                    You must be a remarkable person to be able to enjoy such an income; you clearly have your sight set on emulating your parents.
                    You mention two lenders with whom your parents have BtL mortgages with, as a broker I consider them as being mid range for consideration particularly Leeds whose Reversionary...

                    Thank you for the research with a deposit of around £40,000 on a house valued between £100,000 and £120,000 should give me a LTV of around 65-75%. With a income of £32,000 before tax it attract lenders despite being 19. My parents currently have BTL mortgages with skipton and leeds I know I will...

                    Just interested in how to advise a 20 year old who is just starting out in the real world. They have left school and got an average full time job and can still live at the parents rent free for as long as they like.

                    I am not sure about this one. For the last 400 years property has always went up. There have been ups and downs but there has never been a consistent fall in property for a sustained period of time...

                    When I started I was going to work on a scooter and spending most of what I earned. But as my salary went up I started saving for a car, then a pension, then a deposit for a house.
                    I bought my first flat for £65k in 1989 and lost £25k on it which put me off investing in property for a long time....
