If you are looking at selling an investment property it is important to consider the tenant in the situation and understand that they can often feel their security and enjoyment of the premises has been affected.
Tenants can cause quite a bit of a problem and hinder viewing inspections should we not be able to get their cooperation. Though legislation requires that they allow viewing inspections to potential purchasers, the delays and the legal process will cause everyone a lot of inconvenience.
Therefore it is important if you are thinking of selling to discuss this first with your property manager who can then work with your tenant to grant you the access you require in a diplomatic manner.
Sometimes, however, it might be necessary to offer the tenant some monetary compensation. Let’s face it if the sale is going to reap some big monetary rewards it makes good sense to ensure the process is smooth and possibly invest a little to ensure that it does. This should also assist for better-presented properties as well as cooperation with access.
Selling does require good planning and thinking ahead so be sure to contact us as your property manager first before listing your property for sale.
