I am wanting to sell one of my properties, but it has a tenant living there who I do not wish to evict. The tenancy is a normal AST tenancy so I could serve a s21 Notice and evict him very easily, but he has lived there since July 2009 and has never caused me any problems (apart from about 3 years ago when I had to ask him to stop putting his bin bags in the communal hallway). His rent is always paid by Housing Benefit as regular as clockwork.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how I would find a buyer who also wants to keep the tenant?
The flat is currently let at £690.00 pcm on an assured shorthold tenancy (now rolled over to become a monthly periodic tenancy).
I’ve never sold a tenanted property before, so any advice on how best to do it will be gratefully received.
