May has brought more bad news for some landlords with the Nationwide Building Society reporting a 3.4% drop in house prices in the year to May ’23 and interest rates that are expected to rise to 5.5.% later this year.
Landlords with a long-term outlook, high-yield properties, and/or either no mortgage or fixed-price mortgages, may be tempted to ignore any loss in equity as a normal market fluctuation.
Landlords with large amounts of disposable cash might be looking forward to buying better-quality property at lower prices.
However, any landlord with a minimal profit or those planning to sell before the abolishment of Section 21 should consider selling now before equity drops and business costs rise.
The dilemmas that landlords who want to sell all or some of their buy-to-let properties, before prices drop further, face are:
So what are landlords doing to avoid empty property, long delays and/or legal costs if they want to sell buy-to-let property without waiting to sell with vacant possession or without long periods of running empty property while a sale is completing?
While some will attempt to sell property with tenants in situ, most high street style estate agents will not get involved in collecting tenancy information and sales normally take longer. Choosing this option, landlords face higher legal fees and more risk a sale will collapse from ‘complications’ or falling property prices causing buyers to want to renegotiate.
Multiply the problems by the number of properties landlords want to sell and it is understandable why many landlords are under huge financial and mental stresses.
