AS FEATURED IN
Being a landlord comes with its fair share of challenges, and having a bad tenant is one of the most stressful. Whether they’re consistently late with the rent, causing damage to your property, or simply proving difficult to communicate with, such tenants can quickly become a landlord’s nightmare.
In these cases, selling your house fast can offer an effective solution to issues. This approach allows you to swiftly convert your property into cash, eliminating the headaches of dealing with problematic tenants in the process. It also ensures a quick end to ongoing rental disputes, saving you from the hassle of lengthy eviction processes that are not only time-consuming but can also be emotionally draining.
Where the tenant eviction process can often be complex and lengthy due to stringent laws protecting tenant rights, selling your house becomes an even more appealing option. It provides immediate financial relief and offers a fresh start, free from the burdens of problematic tenants.
Property Rescue is your ally when you need to sell your house quickly. We buy properties directly, allowing you to bypass the traditional, time-consuming selling process. Whether you’re dealing with bad tenants, financial difficulties, or other challenges, we aim to exchange contracts in as little as 48 hours. Our service includes assisting with mortgage payoffs and other debts, and we even offer a cash advance once contracts are exchanged, providing immediate relief and peace of mind.
Here’s how it works
When dealing with problematic tenants, landlords often face challenges that can be stressful and time-consuming. However, there are several alternative methods to regain control of your property.
One such method is through a Section 8 eviction. This is used when a tenant has breached the terms of the rental agreement, such as failing to pay rent or causing damage to the property. You’ll need to serve a Section 8 notice detailing the grounds for eviction, but be aware that the tenant can contest this, potentially leading to a court hearing.
Another option is a Section 21 eviction, often referred to as a ‘no fault’ eviction. This allows landlords to evict tenants at the end of their tenancy term without providing a reason. It’s a useful tool if you simply wish to regain possession of your property, but it requires giving the tenant a notice period of at least two months.
There are other types of eviction as well, including ones for antisocial behaviour or illegal activity. Each type of eviction has specific legal requirements and processes, and it’s important to follow these to avoid complications.
If you’re looking for a faster and potentially less contentious route, you might consider offering a ‘cash for keys’ deal. This involves paying your tenant to leave the property voluntarily. While this may seem counterintuitive, it can often be a cost-effective solution when considering the time and money spent on formal eviction processes.
