Your top questions when selling house with a heat pump

✅ How do I know whether the home I'm selling has a heat pump?

Heat pumps are increasingly being installed at properties throughout the UK, and they are a more energy efficient way to heat a house compared to a gas boiler. Given concerns about the high costs and electricity usage of gas boilers, the government has issued a prohibition on new build properties from having these devices installed as of 2025.

✅ Are there different types of heat pumps that a property can have?

Yes, if you have a heat pump at your house then it will be one of three different types, either using a ground source, air source or water source in order to extract the energy that the device needs to power your property. There are benefits and drawbacks linked with each of the three types of heat pump, including varying installation costs and levels of energy efficiency.

✅ What effect can a heat pump have when trying to sell a home?

If the house that you are attempting to sell has a heat pump, buyers could associate several advantages and disadvantages with this device. Reasons why they might like having a heat pump include increased energy efficiency and reduced utility bills. But buyers could also have concerns that certain heat pumps may be very noisy when running, or create an eyesore.

✅ What details about my house's heat pump will I need to give buyers?

If a potential buyer expresses an interest in making an offer to purchase your property, they could want to know certain details about the heat pump, so it’s a good idea to collect all of this information early in order to quickly provide it to them. These facts include the manufacturers’ operating instructions, the date the unit was last serviced, and various other issues.

✅ What are my choices for trying to sell a property with a heat pump?

You will usually be able to choose from one of four approaches to sell a home that has a heat pump, and they are selling to a quick buyer like LDN Properties, selling at an auction, selling without any help or selling with an estate agent. Some of these methods have prominent benefits, like quick buyers not charging any fees, and others have notable disadvantages.

✅ What's the swiftest way to sell my house that has a heat pump?

On average, the speediest method to sell almost any type of property – including those with a heat pump – is to contact a quick buyer such as LDN Properties, as the process will only take a handful of weeks, and this includes exchanging contracts. Otherwise, you can expect to wait at least several months if you choose any of the other three options for selling your home.

✅ How much will I pay in fees when selling my home with a heat pump?

If you choose a quick buyer to sell your property, you will not have to pay any fees, so you can count on receiving the full sale proceeds, and the same is true if you sell without any third-party assistance. But if you choose to sell your home via an estate agent or an auctioneer, you’ll need to pay them commission that will be deducted immediately from the final sale proceeds.
