Sometimes life gets in the way and situations are such that you may need to sell a house quickly.

Keep on reading to find out how you can sell a house with tenants.

Communication is key 

First and foremost, it is important to remember that communication is key in matters like this. Having an open dialect with your tenants regarding your plans of selling the house is imperative to avoid any unnecessary problems arising closer to the time of the sale. Providing your tenants with a time frame will allow them to make arrangements for themselves and will allow the process to run much smoother. Additionally, maintaining a good relationship with your tenants will also enable house viewings to take place successfully and will encourage the current tenants to leave the property in a good condition.

Can I sell my property with tenants still residing?

Sometimes the former isn’t as easy as imagined, and you can find yourself in a situation where the tenants are not happy to leave the property for whatever reason. Worry not though, you most certainly can still sell the property with the tenants still residing. Here’s how:

  1. Meet halfway: instead of negotiating with your tenants to leave, ask them to buy instead. They may not have the means to do so, however, proposing the question and allowing them  the opportunity is always a good starting point.
  2. Sell to another landlord or property developer: The new buyer will take over your current role and continue or draw up a new agreement with the tenants, becoming their new landlord in your place.
