Q. Do we have to declare if my property has subsidence?
We believe in transparency and in addition the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trade Regulations 2008 also states it’s a requirement to disclose anything that may affect a potential buyers decision to purchase, which subsidence would be included in this. Therefore it must be declared.
Q. Can we market the property if it’s not habitable?
A property can be marketed in any condition, although we will have to be aware of any restrictions on access to the property should it be dangerous. We would of course discuss any restrictions prior to marketing and how we would overcome that during the marketing period.
Q. Can you tell me whether it is worth me finishing the work or to sell it in the current condition?
This isn’t a question where one answer will apply to all scenarios, however, it is often the case where it’s better to sell in the current condition as there is a reason why the work hasn’t been finished. There is often a strong demand for properties that can be improved and that way buyers can add their own style and taste whilst doing the work.
Q. Will people want to buy my property at a lower price if I haven’t finished the work?
We will always look to provide a valuation based on the current condition and therefore would explain that to any potential buyers when discussing the property with them. It is just as important to not over inflate the marketing price to allow for offers to come in as you may actually put more potential buyers off by doing so.
Q. Would it be easier to sell the property to one of the quick sale companies I have seen advertising top buy property quickly?
