Landlords rushing to sell as mortgage costs soar above tenants' rent

Private landlords across the UK have found themselves in hot water, and it's no surprise that many are rushing to sell their property portfolios.

A recent article by the BBC reported that private landlords had expressed critical concerns that their rents won't cover the cost of mortgage payments, especially for those with fixed-rate mortgages coming to an end.

With interest rates rising, and added bills from increasingly tighter regulations, landlords who had previously banked on their property portfolios being their retirement plans have had to switch tactics. Understandably, it's caused a rush in landlords who are opting to cut their losses and cash in while they can still get as much equity back as possible.

But is now really the best time to sell with the current market?

Over the last year the average time it took to sell a property rose from 45 days to 65 days. However, landlords that contacted Landlord Sales Agency to sell didn't experience this struggle.

In the last year, over 200 LandlordZONE landlords reached out to us at Landlord Sales Agency to sell their buy-to-lets. Of those landlords, the average time it took for Landlord Sales Agency to sell was below 28 days. Twice as fast as the current market, and for higher prices.

Landlords need to sell, and we've proven we deliver. We do exactly what we say we'll do, and with a huge database of over 30,000 private buyers who get notified of our deals via text message as soon as you get in touch with us to sell, we're selling properties faster than anyone else.

But what about tenanted properties? Many landlords are worried about tenants holding them back, you don't need to. That's where we excel the most. Because our company is owned by a landlord, myself, David Coughlin, I've gathered the best team in the country to help solve all my tenant issues, and I personally use that same team for you.

In fact, we go above and beyond to sell tenanted properties. We're so confident we'll get you a high price for all of your properties, fast, we have no problem helping tenants pay their current rents, pay off arrears, pay for them to relocate and in some cases, even pay their rent in advance for the next landlord who takes your property on. For very difficult cases, we've got the best relationships with local councils across the UK allowing us to get councils to pay rent for tenants, clear any outstanding funds they owe you and even have the councils pay off all their legal costs.

For houses with stubborn survey issues, we bring on board our entire building team and housing networks to resolve every single problem, ensuring that sales don't fall out of bed, and that landlords like you don't have to take a big drop in price.
