Selling Property With Large Bills
When you’re attempting to sell your home, if there are large bills at the property you may find it harder to attract buyers but it’s still possible to get a quick and fair offer.
Your top questions when selling a property with large bills
✅ Which situations cover selling a property that has large bills?
There are many scenarios in which a homeowner who is looking to sell their property has to deal with large bills. These can be one-off amounts or recurring bills, and there can be situations in which the current homeowner might have falling behind in their payments. Whatever the explanation, you may find that it’s somewhat harder to sell this type of property.
✅ What are some typical examples of large bills at a house or flat?
You could have a wide range of bills at your property and they can vary significantly in what you’re paying for – and some fees only apply at leasehold homes, including ground rent and service charges. Typical examples of large bills at many properties can be a high rate of council tax, costly electricity bills, high-priced window cleaning and other charges, and more.
✅ Why are buyers less willing to make an offer to buy a home with large bills?
Prospective buyers will likely have written a budget for purchasing a property and it will include a cap on how much money they’ll be able to spend each month as the next owner of your home, so if your regular bills exceed this limit then this type of buyer could walk away. Other buyers might worry that they’ll be liable for any unpaid large bills that you still owe.
✅ Should I pay down large bills before trying to sell my home?
If you can reduce some of the large bills at your property, this might help with addressing some potential buyers’ concerns about the cost of owning the home. Strategies that can help you lower your large bills include applying for a discounted rate of council tax, negotiating with cleaners to charge you less for each visit, paying off late fees on existing bills and more.
✅ What is the quickest approach for selling a property with large bills?
Your speediest method for selling any type of home will typically be contacting LDN Properties or another quick home buying company, because the timeline should only be a handful of weeks, and that includes exchanging contracts and paying you the full proceeds. Using an auctioneer, estate agent or selling without any help can all take at least several months.
✅ Will I have to pay commission to sell my home that has large bills?
Only if you decide to sell your home using the support of an auctioneer or estate agent, because they will require that you pay them commission if they’re able to sell your home. This fee will be subtracted from the final sale proceeds, adding to your costs. But selling without any help or selling to a quick home buyer like LDN Properties will be free of any commission charges.
✅ How can I be sure a quick home is legitimate when selling my home with large bills?
You can inquire with specific companies as to whether they’re registered with The Property Ombudsman (TPO), which is an independent organisation that publishes rules to guard homeowners from fraud in the quick buying industry, and all members must follow those rules. Only sell to companies that can prove they belong to TPO, such as LDN Properties.
