    Selling BTL without tenant knowing

    Is it possible to sell a flat with a tenant in without them knowing? Would it have to be an auction?

    #2
    Possible but tricky for purchaser . And eventually tenant MUST be informed (s48 & S3 notices)
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Any one had experience with the cash buyers such as open property group or nationalhomebuyers?

        Since you refer to BTL and presumably therefore are referring to short term tenancies, there is no obligation to give notice to the tenant of an intention to sell. Whether you can achieve a sale without the tenant knowing is another question. Many prospective buyers will want to inspect which is difficult to achieve without the tenant's cooperation. The tenant should not be forgotten as a possible buyer.

        No.

          The two firms mentioned do deliver on their promise to purchase but not at the price you would want to sell unless you are being forced to sell.

            Any idea what price they generally offer? IE % of full market value? Say they can buy in 7 days. Would give your tenant a shock

                So you want to sell and not tell your tenant that he may lose his home.

                Thanks for letting me know of your existence so I can steer clear of you.

                  Tenant not been paying rent properly or responding to calls and messages so I don't feel especially sorry for them . I just wondered if I can sell the place at a discount to get it off my hands rather than have 6 months or more of stress trying to evict them

                    And don't forget the tenants deposit which has to be returned or handed to next owner.

                      No deposit was taken . So if I was to do this am I better off using a 7 day company or an auction or another method?

                        Hi All. We have a BTL interest only mortgage @ 3.88% on rental
                        We also have a interest only mortgage on our residental house @ 2.05%
                        If miraculously we have money to overpay , which should we choose?
                        I thought 3.88% as higher interest , wife says 2.05% as its our residence and leave...

                        CGT is charged on what you get for a house versus what you paid for it. Whether you have a mortgage to pay off or not is immaterial.

                        Ok thanks. We thought overpaying on the rental increases the profit ie more CGT

                        I don't think your mortgage has any bearing on CGT.

                        Even taking 40% tax relief off 3.88% is more than 2.05%, so I'd say the BTL is the one to overpay.

                        Going off on a slight tangent here.

                        My workplace auto-enrolment pension now has me contributing £150 per month. My employer matches this.

                        My statement reads, in today’s money...

                        At 65 years old (I’m 36 now) I may receive.

                        11k tax free. ...

                        The ones I've always seem assume no further contribution, but the OP seemed to suggest that the scheme has only just started, and, given the figures used for these estimates have gone down a lot from when I was first in a money purchase scheme, I think a £44k pension pot in present day terms couldn't...

                        I believe your pension statement is based on a calculation of what your pension fund is worth today and inferring no further contributions made. So if you stopped paying in to your pension fund, this is what your fund could potentially be worth at 65.

                        Each year you contribute more, this...

                        I'm a little bothered by the low figures.

                        If the "tax free" amount is meant to reflect the position of today (ie. you can take out 25% tax free), it would mean your pension fund would be £44k when you are 65.
                        Which means that the fund must have lost more than half its value...
