When I met my wife I owned my own home in a North Yorkshire town. When we decided to move in together, rather than sell my house, I rented it and became an “accidental landlord”.
Fast forward 8 years and my now wife and I have started a family and want a bit more space in our home, the money I have tied up in my rental property would be really useful. What is the best way to approach selling in this situation?
The property is an ex local authority house worth about £130k, the tenants have been in about 5 years and have been model tenants apart from one small hiccup that was to do with them moving jobs and was fully resolved at the time. I feel extremely grateful to the tenants for taking good care of my house etc. I don’t really want to just evict them, but I do want to achieve a decent sale price for this property, is it possible to have it both ways? What would you do?
Thanks in advance,
