Your top questions when selling a mansion block flat

✅ How do I know whether my property is a mansion block flat?

Although there isn’t a single definition that covers all mansion block flats in the UK, these properties all have some general attributes in common. The vast majority are situated in central London, built between 1880 and 1910, are larger than standard flats with several bedrooms and more than one bathroom, and the buildings have red brick exteriors and grand interiors.

✅ What are the reasons why a buyer would want a mansion block flat?

Mansion block flats can be seen as very appealing to some buyers for a number of reasons, including that they are often situated in popular parts of London or some other cities where flats are in limited supply. Certain buyers will also see a mansion block flat as being a highly desirable property because of their often-large size as well as their historic status.

✅ Why might a buyer be cautious about owning mansion block flat?

There are a few explanations for why a potential buyer might be wary about making an offer on your mansion block flat. One justification is that these properties often have a much higher sale price than other types of flats, and this can disqualify buyers looking on a strict budget. Many of these flats can also have various restrictions in their lease agreements that will deter buyers.

✅ How can I best prepare my mansion block flat for sale?

If there are any structural flaws with your flat, for example dry rot, then you could consider spending time, money and effort on fixing these issues before seeking a buyer – but this is not required. Other steps you can take to make you home more appealing to buyers include cleaning and removing clutter from every room and tidying the exterior where possible.

✅ What are the options available for selling a mansion block flat?

When you are ready to seek a buyer for your mansion block flat, the usual four methods from which you can choose are enlisting the services of an estate agent, trying a property auction, selling without any help from a third party or selling to a quick home buyer like LDN Properties. All four methods have their own unique benefits but some have rather prominent disadvantages.

✅ What's the quickest approach to sell a mansion block flat?

The fastest way to sell almost any category of home is by contacting LDN Properties or another quick property buyer, because it should only take a few weeks from start to finish. The other three typical approaches for selling a home – using an estate agent, trying your luck at an auction or selling without any assistance – can all take at least many months or more.

✅ How can I avoid paying fees with the sale of my mansion block flat?

If you are looking to not pay commission when selling your mansion block flat, the best options are to either sell without any help from an estate agent or auctioneer, or alternatively sell to a zero-fee quick home buying company like LDN Properties. But you will need to pay fees if you opt for selling your property either with an auctioneer or via an estate agent.
