Your top questions when Selling a House As Is

✅ When would my property be considered an as is home?

There’s no single legal definition for an as is home, but generally it refers to a property that has some potential issue that could be fixed before sale that the owner does not address before trying to find a buyer – anything from a structural problem such as subsidence through to a visual issue being located close to power lines that you could obscure by planting trees.

✅ Is it legal to sell my as is home without fixing any issues?

Yes, you cannot be penalised for trying to sell your home as is without first addressing whatever flaw it might have that could be dissuading some buyers from making an offer. Although this can help to save you time and money, you need to be aware that selling your home as is might reduce the number of people interested in buying it at the current price.

✅ Should I fix problems with my home or try selling my home as is?

This depends on your individual wants and needs when selling your property, because not everyone has the time and money available for the corrective work that might have to be done a home. If you decide to sell your house or flat as is then you will not have to spend money on any corrective action, but you might have to accept a lower sale price as a trade-off.

✅ Do I have to disclose problems with my as is property to potential buyers?

Yes. The UK government has rules and laws in place that require homeowners to disclose any problems with their house or flat when trying to find a buyer. There are serious legal consequences for lying about or withholding information about a property’s problems, because a buyer can sue you if they purchase the home and learn that you hid these issues from them.

✅ What is the quickest way to find a buyer for my as is house or flat?

Generally, using a fast buyer like LDN Properties is the speediest option because they should be able to complete all of the steps of buying your home in just a few short weeks. When you sell via an auction it will take at least a few months for the entire process. And selling via an estate agent often lasts for many months, and more than a year in certain situations.

✅ Does every method of selling my as is home include fees or other charges?

No. If you sell your as is home using an estate agent then you will have to pay commission usually based as a percentage of your property’s sale. But quick home buyers will never charge you any commission, so you’re guaranteed to receive the full sale proceeds.

✅ How do I know that I can trust a quick buyer when selling my as is home?

Because the legitimate fast buyers, such as LDN Properties, belong to an organisation known as The Property Ombudsman (TPO). This independent entity publishes policies which are crafted to protect homeowners against scams in the fast buying industry. All TPO members must closely follow those policies, which should give you peace of mind when selling.
