The disputes that may lead you to sell a house with sitting tenants Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:17

Although there are many reasons why you may attempt to sell a house with sitting tenants, a contributory factor can undoubtedly be tenant disputes. Indeed, more than a fifth - 22 per cent - of landlords have had a dispute with a tenant, according to AA Home Membership research.


The report by this reputable organisation found that a property's condition was by far the greatest cause of landlord and tenant disputes, with more than half relating to property damage. Four out of 10 disputes were due to tenants not cleaning the property at the time of moving, while poor garden maintenance was responsible for almost a third of feuds. Less conventional reasons for landlords and tenants being at loggerheads included underwear in the fridge and the theft of a boiler.


Property owners have also considered the sale of your property with sitting tenants due to the late payment of rent, which caused disputes among 44 per cent of landlords, while neighbour complaints about a tenant accounted for 21 per cent, and tenants keeping pets that weren't allowed represented another 14 per cent of clashes between the two parties. Tenants have been particularly affected by some of the policy changes such as: reductions in council tax benefit, the spare room subsidy, benefit capping, and limits on housing allowance. Some of these measures will compound the negatives of buy to let investment, and may influence a landlords decision to sell with sitting tenants. 


However, almost half of landlords also said that keeping a good relationship with their tenant was important to decrease the likelihood of them moving. Indeed, such statistics only affirm how vital a good relationship is for both landlord and tenant. But if your relationship with your tenant has become strained beyond repair, you may opt to sell the property with sitting tenants, and Dream House Buyer will be happy to make a guaranteed cash offer within 48 hours.
