Selling occupied housing: how to proceed?
To sell occupied housing, there is no particular constraint. It is simply necessary that the tenant has a lease in due form.
And contrary to popular belief, the tenant is not a priority to buy your home during the lease.
To allow visits to the occupied dwelling, all you have to do is inform the tenant of your project and define with him the visit slots. He can not oppose it because the law requires that he must let you visit at least two hours a day on working days.
It should be known that when one sells a housing occupied, a discount applies on the good.
The discount in relation to the price of the free rental property depends on:
- From the price of the rent, the higher the rent, the higher the rental yield is good and therefore the selling price will be high.
- The remaining time of the lease, the longer the lease expires, the higher the price.
- Occupation, indeed, the age of the tenant will be taken into account by potential buyers.
- Type of lease (Law of 48, empty, furnished …)
It can sometimes be relevant to sell busy because it allows you to keep rents until the final sale avoiding the vacancy.
