    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?

    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?

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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    Possible but tricky for purchaser . And eventually tenant MUST be informed (s48 & S3 notices)
